I like the look of it. Ride height and tires look in harmony.

Alrighty then, A bit more work.
Can't have a Faux Runner with out the Pre Runner bumper
SO I spent half a day thinking of how to do it and how to make it.
I used 3/32 tube with a wire stuck in it to keep the bends.
Drill holes in the bumper to stick the Tube through, figured it'd be stronger than just glueing
it on the bumper.

BTW: I got tired of holding the body and frame together and decided to drill out the chassis
to use the Factory screw holes with 0-80x3/8"inch Miniature Bolts.

That is how I hold things together during the build ;) :D

Thanks STewart.
Bit more work.
Took a while to figure how I wanted to do the spare tire carrier.

THere is also a Wing Nut to hold the tire in place.
Still working on the angle and Height I want the carrier to sit.

Thanks, Guess I'm just having fun with paperclips, 1/8 tubing and a tube bender :lol:
I figured the tire was carried too high to.
Sooo a bit of redo and lowering

Not the fastest build going on but I'm trying to stay on track and waiting on some
parts.

Thanks Bates Offroad I wish I made this one 4wd but I'll save that for the next Ford. :)

Yes Nick Winter It is the stock bumper that came in the kit but I just decided I needed
more rear Clearance.
Wack!!

Gotta trim up the rear box corners next.

One step at a time and I'll have it done for Christmas :)

I'd think Ladder bars or Anti Wrap bars would be feasible for the Faux Runner but I
put the cheapest lift kit available on it B)
Next one will be better and 4wd :D

some of those heavy drilled ladder bars from the horrid AMT AWB kits may work out nicely under this thing and give it a cool look.

i like the 2wd, think it's pretty cool

Thanks MrZinn.
Surprisingly, I found a pair :lol:

Those will help in protecting the driveline/fueltanks and
keep the axle in place :P

Good Idea you had :rolleyes: ..
