Started with 84 Toyota, that had several mods to it already. The Customer was finally ready to take the next step and do body protection, along with winch, and build up the front axle to take some abuse in the way of gussets, shafts, ARB, etc.

here are a few pictures of how the truck came in. Customer had started to cut the front fenders/radiator support off the truck in order to make room for an engine cage.

The lights are old motorcycle side marker lights. They have a teardrop shape that fits into the tubework nicely

Nice work as usual Greg. You're right about the tires though, they look tiny with the reduced sheetmetal!

The plan is to run a 38 on the truck, instead of a 35 that measures 33. But the next problem with that is once you go to a tire of that size, it sure is nice to have full hydro.:drool:
