ABA is good, I prefer Double Bastard though. If you haven't tried it, Cali-Belguiqe is also really good

Which truck is that? Not enough tube to be the race truck unless this was pre-build.

I kid I kid!
Those are 33s... It's sitting on 35s now. The KM2's are on my truck now, that procomp is in my sideyard and the other tire is gone, it now sits currently on 35" bfg projects on brand new american racing rims and there's 2 brand new nitto 35" tires on black steelies in the spare rack. But I also have currently at my house 6 more brand new american racing wheels and we also have 4 brand new 35" general grabbers on their way right now too and that gives us a total of 10 35" tires on hand to choose from. We wanted to test a couple different tires to see which work best and then we'll pick and stay from there on. Right now though plan is to run the nittos as spares, the BJG as testing/practice tires and keep the generals for race day cause we have a friend that has 8 fleet trucks, a 7 open and a trophy truck running them that hasn't had a single flat in 2 years. So yes, this $40K truck doesn't have matching spares but we are rolling on 10 brand spankin new wheels all with very high quality 35" tires.

Next topic?


Can I choose? Okay, cool... Thanks... How about this.

Just cause it runs doesn't mean it's done! Mounted rear amber and blue light, mounted up a billet aluminum prototype quick release setup from the company I work for on the jack handle and fabbed up a pretty simple quick release jack mount setup also. Kinda figured video would show the action and simplicity better then pictures.

That was VERY VERY early race truck build. Look at the vid above as I walk around the back. It'll look similar.

And have you not seen the early days?

How it was purchased...



After glass was mounted and I built the front bumper...

http://i576.photobucket.com/albums/s...h74/Bmpera.jpg

Winning a free set of leaf springs snowballed really really really fast.





I mean he needed a bedcage to mount them to right? BTW, all this labor was in trade for a set of shocks... That's my first race truck build payment technically...

Notice the fabbed up front leaf hanger just tacked in place after cutting off the stock ones and obviously the leaf pack is torn apart to cycle for shock setup.








This was the end of stage 1... He was stationed on the east coast right after this next picture and well, then it all snowballed again by me offering to store it for him till he came back in 2016 and I'd drive it once every 4-6 weeks to keep it from rotting.



That picture was taken in Lucern the afternoon before all those people were killed 2 summers ago at that offroad race. If the truck had gone right instead of left, the friend that owns this truck probably wouldn't be alive.

The front suspension pictured above is the camburg long travel kit. It had 8" sway a way coilovers, bypass and bumps up front and cycled 14" of travel. It's all gone and been sold and now is running on a custom kit with 2.5" x 10" king bypass race series coilovers, 3" king bypass shocks 10" in length and 2.5" king bumpstops cycling a little over 14" with custom spindles unlike the stock ones that rip the upper ball joint out that camburg uses.

There's 560 or something like that in the "jasons truck" part of my photo bucket. Payment for stage 2 has been my race helmet and race suit and also all of my future drive time.

Also, in case anyone is curious... 40 minutes in the truck yesterday totally made up for the last 6 months!

They give the truck and all supporting gear to me and start building a KOH rig.

It goes away and I write it off as practice for my fab skills.

What happens if he races it Jan 12th and wads it up at mile 5 and it burns to the ground? Same thing... Trust me, I know the possibilities...

If I was starting 100% fresh right now with no vehicles in my drive, that's probably the direction I'd go.

Funny, thinking about what would happen if he did race it once and decided to up and sell it or take it elsewhere. It would honestly probably be the deciding factor in me picking up something like this.

http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/cto/3428131395.html

I'd park it in the garage and strip it down to a bare cab and bare frame disposing of the entire driveline including the motor. Then put my black toyota on stands in the driveway and strip it down to 100% bare chassis and then scrap what's left on the stands. Then go spend about $2000 on metal and about $2000 on shocks and go for round two spending probably a full year to do a build this time around. Honestly too, if I'm doing it, I'd probably drop the $1500 for the TRD supercharger too. Realistically for about $7000 out of my pocket and using what's on my current truck I'd have a truck that could absolutely blow the doors off the one I just built and I could probably be pushing 80-90 thru that whoop section I posted the video of.

I'm too deep into it to really change directions so that's honestly probably what I would do. It would take a year or so and the cash wouldn't be an issue at this point. Then I'd make a point to find the current truck in a race and ram the heck out of it from the rear! LOL

Khris, I been looking at trucks pretty much non-stop for the past couple of days. Came across http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/cto/3437002581.html 1994 so the last year of TTB and 4WD. Sure, it has some craptastic flatbed on it but that would be coming off for a bed cage and glass. Just wish I had the cash.
