One suggestion from me on paint job: air brush a little black "soot" trailing back from the stacks? Would make it look like you've been burning a lot of Diesel. Might just make it look bad too....

I like the LEDs, never can have enough of those!! Would love to see this thing rolling in person. Looks awesome.

Thanks Brain, I'll keep the soot in mind if I ever get a smoker.

Look what I scored late last night, It is used but got it for $80.00 shipped

Time for a revamp, the cab is for sale if anyone is interested ?

The main purpose of the rebuild to make a hauler for a scaler and make the truck a bit more capable and a little lighter for better COG.

I made a steel bumper and rock sliders yesterday, today I got them all cleaned up and painted. Have the RC4WD fairlead, pull rings and Wraith LED's installed as well.

Wha?! Your selling the cab? Does it come with the coneheads

What do you mean by make it more capable, Bondo? Will it have a trailer? Who's gonna drive it, Charlie Sheen's corpse or the pointy heads? Going by the looks of those pics, are you going to have a remote operated fliptop lid?

To me it seems like you have a lot of spare time up your sleeve, have you thought about taking up a hobby?

Sold the cab for $290.00 and sold all the brass for $125.00
My intention was to make a hauler out of it and just make it lighter with better COG for when I wheelin' it. The old cab weighed 3.7lbs and just killed the COG, no it's awesome. Drove it today and it climbed like crazy and couldn't be happier with it now.
No remote operation for the lid, just a cabinet hinge.
Yes, I have a lot of spare time and wouldn't change a thing.
