I had originally planned to build this as a race truck,thats why the bed is so cut up. I even built a complete tube chassis for it but decided to go this route instead. I mocked it up to get a look at the stance,nothing is glued in and may not be in perfect alignment. I just finished up the monster frame notches and bag mounts to put it 3 scale inches off the ground. Its a 2 link setup so I still need to make a panhard bar for it. The rear shocks I made out of aluminum tubing. I made the bags  out of some o-rings that were reduced in diameter. In the front I moved the front suspension up with the crossmember attached. It's getting a turbocharged blow thru Big Block Chevy.Im not sure what Im doing with the bed yet.  I dont usually build shiny stuff but I think this one will be an exception. I have some burnt orange metallic paint that should look good on this build.
