I originally built this box stock back in 2007. 

here it is originally 

DSC06373.jpg

I robbed the tires off of it a few years ago for a jeep build. So today I decided i would bring it back out and rebuild it into a trail truck/pre runner. I've got tires and more .080 rod coming in to finish up the cage. This should be a quick build, unless I decide to go crazy on it.

 

here is the stripped chassis and cab.

Worked on this some more today. Like I said "quick" build.

I got the rear cage almost finished up, I have to add the shock mounts and figure out where I want the fuel cell.

I also got the three link set up for the rear axle figured out, except the last bar and won't know how long to make it until I get the shocks roughly in place.

got some more done on this the last few nights. 

Added some more to the cage

I built a fuel cell and added shock mounts to the cage before I painted it. I might add a spare tire mount and a place for some fuel cans. I have not decided yet.

Here are the shocks and the rear axle mounted. I still need to make the 3rd link to finish up the suspension.

thanks guys! 

I've finished up everything that I wanted to do but I am still waiting on tires so I will probably add fuel and brake lines. I will weather it more once the tires come in.

I added a brush guard to the front, skid plate, and added gas cans and a fire extinguisher. I will probably build a jack and add a winch to the front.

Awesome fabrication of the suspension and cage. Very nice work!

 

Having owned a Baja Bug when I was younger I had a limited familiarity with off-roading and your truck has the look. Nice build.
