Hey rapier46,Just some thoughts about your post, photos, and nice truck.I really enjoy photo documentaries, especially projects and wheeling. It looks like you are fab-a-holic, and a pretty darn good one at that. After 42 years as an active off-road enthusiast from sand rails to 4x4s it has always bothered me to witness the destruction of the “vehicle”. I learned from my personal involvement there are many different perspectives on the pleasure of the hobby or sport. During my early sand duning days, I knew a family that had no furniture in their home and most likely in debt up to their eyeballs, but they had the nicest sand rail, quads for their kids, toy hauler, and a dually pickup anyone would love to own. BUT... they always seemed to have a great time I’ve seen one my duning buddies build a $6,000 engine, go to dunes for a week-end of fun, back if off his trailer, fire the engine, and smoke a clutch disc in about 30 seconds. I’ve watched a guy that owned one of the most beautiful Jeep TJs in Arizona join a 4x4 club, get infected with the rock crawling bug and within 12 months that TJ was thrashed so badly and sustained so much body, chassis, and drive train damage it was very painful for me to look it, and know the time and expense he went through to repair it and modify it. I spent many hours repairing the body damage to my 85 short bed. Since it was my daily driver, I could not drive it every day without repairing the damage rather quickly. What’s my point? For most us, the hobby and sport comes with some unavoidable carnage - sometimes a little, sometimes, a lot, sometimes total. Of course, for some their fun is designing, fabricating, repairing, and rebuilding. If I were to get back into active 4-wheeling, I’d build a simple, inexpensive, tube buggy. I would NOT take a nice old or new Toyota 4-wheel drive vehicle, and attempt to turn it into a rockcrawler and ultimately end up destroying it. Your truck looks like a serious well-fab’d 4-wheeler that you really enjoy….. but it hurts my eyes to look at it.The dog, however feels good to my eyes. He looks to be on the older side of his life, and not necessarily enjoying the wheeling adventure. Gnarls.
