Back Country has JKS for $75 lol. That's a joke. I can get them from Amazon for $55, but I have to wait until Wednesday. Or 4wp has warrior products rears for $35. Adams is sold out...

That's the nicest looking truck you've posted yet! It was interesting to see how the photography is done too

LOL, not all of them look like hoopties! There's quite a few amazing old school trucks with modern performance!


Here's like the rat rod of the go fast world... LOL

When/if I ever yardsale the F150 that I someday will finish... My game plan would be to pick up an older like 60s-70s ford and start transplanting what's left usable on the F150 over and build one. Pikup a frame/cab for like $500 and toss whatever's left of it in the trash and start putting parts on it. Wouldn't paint it or anything for sure!

I'm already joking but with a little seriousness about going for the ranch truck look with my current F150. Keep the 80's tan/brown two tone, bull horns on the front, gun rack in the window, marker lights across the top of the cab above the windshield with a suspension and driveline that would retail in the $20-25K range underneath it! LOL

So the term "Yardsale" means when a truck is destroyed by a wreck to the point where it cannot be repaired? Sorry, I've seen the term a couple times now in reference to the racing trucks and I want to make sure I understand it.

The farm truck was on display at sema this year too actually in the main hall. LOL But yeah, similar... Just your average run of the mill beater is something I'm considering doing once it comes around to cosmetics on it. Who knows though when the time actually comes what I'll do. that's a long ways away still.


And Matthew, that's how I use it, not sure how everyone else uses it. Basically I know in skiing it's when you basically blast all your gear across the hill. And well, if i scatter my truck across the desert, I'm just gonna assume it's mostly going in the trash and I'm starting over again salvaging what I can but probably building a new chassis at the very least. It's kinda the one bad side affect from going fast in the desert besides the cost... Split second mistake and you may end up throwing your whole truck in the trash. It's a conversation I had with Jason years ago when we first agreed to the partnership. Wanted to make sure that while it's probably not going to happen, it still could... If you can't accept that, you shouldn't be doing it in the first place.

Have some 33x12.5x15 BFG A/T's coming off a friends jeep that can be had for $20 a pop. They're not the greatest, probably 25% tread or so. Would make okay spares or get you by in a pinch. She's gonna shoot me some pictures of them but if anyone thinks they're interested shoot me a PM. I could get them as soon as tomorrow probably if someone wanted. I asked her to shoot me a coin in the tread picture and an overall picture.

Danger ranger was running like poo and the check engine light was flashing not just on. Had to drop it off. At least I get to drive a real truck for the weekend.


Last time I had this one while the ranger was in the shop I blew a leak in the intake gasket and we had to replace the intake (heavily pitted) and the spider injectors. Freakin $1600 worth of work on a 'spare' 98 Chevy lol.
