Maybe but it's going to be a tough sale.

And I think this new truck is waaaay too nice and fast for Best Ever, but it'll probably be a lot easier on your back.

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

Quick update:

Been going slow. Waiting on shocks from King still....
Made the upper brackets and mocked everything up on both sides, but I need shocks in order to cycle it before I weld it up.

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

Looks super pimp!

How thick is that frame material where you're welding on the upper control arm mounting tabs? Would suck to rip those off.

Great point. The frame looks to be 1/8" which does'nt worry me much, but I backed the mounts up just to be safe.



Still waitin on thsose shocks... So I did a couple thing that need to get done, but were being put off because I hate drilling. Ran a 3/4" bit thru the stock steering idler arm (which sucked bad...)
And mounted the new battery box and Optima.
