That is borderline between insanely cool and rediculously stupid.

I'm leaning towards rediculously stupid, but still neat.

It's hard to tell but if you look at the drivers side there is a reflections of the pedals in the floor, if I had to guess i'd say the floor is plexi or lexan.

I first saw the exhaust done like that on a Blazer with a Tacoma front end. Had the same motor in it too. Just flipped the headers and ran them facing towards the front or something.

yeah i dunno....just seems like the truck is missing a direction. Like the builder/s just threw a bunch of ideas on a board and put it together without thinking about the overall look of the truck.

Lexan floor, exhaust out the bumper, no roof, lexan centered steering wheel, *****in engine, right hand drive, etc etc. Why 2-tone like that? why is the MSD box shown in the interior? what happens if your shoe-lace gets caught on a part of the trans? and is it just me or do those rib-cage looking things just seem like an afterthought. Sort of "hmm, interior looks too boring..... lets do... THIS."

Anyway, props for pulling off the individual components. points off for putting them together ugly.

why not on the MSD? MSD is the ****.
what part of the trans are you gonna get your shoe lace caught in? the bell housing/torque converter/fly wheel are on the other side of the fire wall.

the rib cage is different, it almost looks like a work in progress.

the exhaust cut out in the bumper seems pretty well thought out, you can't just put some pipe in and have it work.

Wow, thats defiantly different, Although I would never put the exhaust like that, Im pretty sure its illegal to put your exhaust before the cab like that. The lexan floor would be pretty wild though.

And for everyone ragging on the truck for looking incomplete....it is. That's why it looks the way it is. One of the biggest things to do at minitruck shows is to bring our your under construction truck and show it off.
