Don't even try to argue that the maintenance/repairing of a vehicle that is heavily modified and driven offroad over rocks and into shit is the same as an older truck that is driven around town. No where did I say I can't do it either, just wasn't high on my list of things I want to spend my time doing. (and you missed the 'building' part that preceeded the maintaning mention in my original post) Its not going to turn to dust the minute the tires touch the beach, and there are ways to prevent it from rusting fast anyways.

I know that the truck would require maintanence, I'm not retarded you know.

Re: THe NAC Lots-O-Post Thread

Make sure you bevel the hell out of those. What welder are you using?

I beveled like 1/4" on each side of the thing, and did two passes on each side.

I made mine, and they have like 5"+ of weld area on each side.
