Well I found the truck I have been looking for after waiting for a good deal, and I think I got a good buy on this one! 1995 Std. cab short bed with 111k miles on a 2.2. I got a good base to make this truck, "the truck", I have had in my head, and had dreams of driving.

Theres ALOT of stuff thats gonna be going on. You wont find out the next step till I post pictures. I can say this wont look anything like it does now. I can give a hint on one thing! 5.7.

Pics do the talkin. Im not posting them all. For all the pics theres a Photobucket link!

*Gos to photobucket to upload pictures*

PhotoBucket link! http://s212.photobucket.com/albums/cc33/Tuckarson/

The frame has been narrowed 2.5" on each side for wider tires.

Everything is square within 3mm as well...

Plasma cutter helps.

Im doing a custom 4 link... I cant tell ya EVERYTHING lol...

The way i think im doing it is i am gonna leave the bedfloor where it is and just have the frame over the top of it.

The way i see it is ill only have to have some runners to go thru the bedfloor to bolt the bed on at the factory locations.

Sound good? Ive never done anything like this before.

OK i gotta move my truck out of the shop where my "so called" friends was leting me work on it and use thier tools, because i helped build the frame i posted earlier in the thread. SOOOooo all day tomorrow i gota move all the peices to my dads house under the carport and work on it there. Means i have to buy a welder and crap also to finsh.

I would stay there but they started rushing me and crap the 2nd week there and started acting funny. The guy i helped build his fullsize frame that always talks to me has not said hardly said anything to me in the past week. i was there today and he didnt even say "whats up" or "good morning" or anything. No one that knows me would even look me in the face. Makes me feel really uncomfortable. I figured a few days ago it was just a bad day. but its continued and im not dealing with it... the last thing i need is them telling me that they are gonna keep my truck untill i pay them or some shit like that.

I swear, fukin haters man. I thought my friend would help me threw this. but instead hes just being a dick. sucks for me this just got exspensive.

We don't know the situation in it's entirety, because we aren't there, but that does suck having to move in the middle of the build. Things were looking good so far. I guess it's better to work in your own place, if you can, so you don't run into situations where you might wear out your welcome. Good luck with the rest and keep us posted.

Wow, it feels so much better to have my truck at my place and not have to worry about all the bull shit.

Even if i do have to work in the dirt.


Sorry about the frame i was talking about i helped on. i copied that from s10forum and i posted pictures of it there. Ill get pictures of it and ill post em here.
