Nope, definitely means your trendy... Cause the half million dollar trucks that aren't owned by broke *** kids sit like that and that's the look they're going for. Has nothing to do with your income, has to do with trying to get that "look" 99% of the time. When you don't have frame rails you can pull it off functional though...

But then again, speaking of broke!!! Where do I sign up to join that club? I'm going back into hiding with no social life for a few months again to work on the savings account.


6.0L chevy V8



Culhane race trans, 4l80E which is a 4 speed auto... Pretty sure GM didn't offer them with billet tail cones?



Close up of the level of fab over the entire hooptie...





Got engine and trans coolers?



Why yes, yes it does... And it's got this whirly birdy things underneath them...



Currie? Yup...



These may end up getting moved...



Race powered? Or head on driveway wreck?



And I officially have a paper weight in the garage again till I can save up some more cash...





I still need to get all the coilovers and bypass shocks for it but he's gonna rebuild them next time he does a production run. I told him no rush... But I do have all the shocks for it. It's already got bumpstops up front but I'm probably going to cut them off and move them to the rear cause he gave me these which would work better up front then in the back...



Oh and Ricky...

This is a good example of why you should never wheel alone. They are lucky they survived, temps dropped to zero at night. I thought about Power's little adventure at potato ridge when I read this.

Kind of hard to see but this is one of the best parts of the truck...




You're looking down the oil filler into the valve cover. Notice there's not a spec of anything in there. It's perfectly 100% clean and doesn't even show signs that it's ever been run. I was told it was a brand new crate motor that's never been fired and while it's dusty and dirty and a little ugly cause it's not finished, it does look to be 100% brand new. Along with that, there's very obvious signs the truck has not been in the dirt since this chassis was finished. The truck had a former life but it's been literally 100% rebuilt and you can tell some of the components have been used but the cage, motor and transmission are all 100% brand new.

You'll likely finish yours before mine. I'm in 100% zero rush and don't have the money to just knock it out over night. I'll be shocked if it sees dirt in 2014 and it takes 2 or 3 years to do right, so be it... All I wanted to do was get it in my possession... Step 1 is done...

Khris,
During the tear down and clean up, I'm going to need you to go ahead and pull that motor and test fit it in the Duece. Just three years until I am officially "retired"....

LOL, I'll get right on that Jason! I'm sure the 3.4 would just motor the F150 right along with ease!
