They made that hood in about a half a day to get it ready. Its also necessary since it has an inline 6 cyl cummins in it. I like the pro stock much better as well. That S-10 is a bad SOB, and looks nice in person.

He still needs taller tires in front, just doesn't look right.

BTW, I love how he has a Ford pullin the trailer for the S-10!

I just read 36 pages, trying not to cheat, anticipating pics of the completed project(not looking at the time/date stamp) and ????? LOL
1. Excellent work, taking the time to do it properly
2. VERY nice project!
3. Are you a "part time" pilot? you have spent alot of hours on that truck
4. I am now coveting your truck

Great truck, can't wait to see video

Had to get a trailer to move the folks from San Diego, and low and behold this 24 foot car hauler was available, brand new. Funny how that works.

I still want that open trailer you had/have! I'll need something for my ranger.

and you drove past my house the other day, i think you slowed down when you saw my truck? maybe it was the stop sign.. seemed a little premature for the stop sign though.
