Did you decide on a color? and is this going to be kept road-legal?

No color yet, I am about 3 months from the paint shop as far as the body goes. And yes I would love to be able to drive it to and from the trails,fishing, camping, hauling my canoe.

This is why I cannot decide on tire size. I have the 37s. But, I think a smaller tire would be better for what i want this rig for.

Then the gear head in me says go big or go home. That's why earlier in the thread I said I would like to eventually have axles that support 40s under it.

Loving this project!

I would put the smaller tires on it that will better suit the planed use of the truck. The larger tires will make it more capable, but it would also probably make you use it less. The more usable the truck, the more you will enjoy it!

ok, build it FOR (if you ever wanted to) 40's, so you wont have to go back later and change a buncha stuff, BUT put your chice of tire on it so you could easily swich without dissasembly and major modifications. Just my opinion.

Only thing bad about that is for wheeling in the meantime. Wheeling on 35's with a 14 bolt would suck. You'd be dragging and anchor with you everywhere. But yes, it does make sense to do it how you want in the beginning so its easily upgradable later.

Thats a very good point. I guess it just depends on needs and budget.

Here is the back seat area of a bone stock Jeep I just fixed. These can give you an idea how much room there is behind the seats. I will edit with pictures from my tub/cab later tonight.

Got the 16 gauge sheet metal for the cab skins today. Tomorrow after work I will be finishing the inner structure and tacking the skins in place. Then patterns for the inner panels. Looks like its all falling together like I wanted. After this weekend I will pull the tub and haul to work for body and paint work.

Look for new pictures on page 1 Sunday.

Will there be enough room behind the seats for something like this?
