About time for a update I geuss!!
Been real busy with work lately, also burned 2 weekends up with a good friend that was on military leave but well worth it to hang out with him.
Picked up a used hoist its a benwil 8000lb.
So this weekend I got the front frame all tacked together and got the radiator and inter cooler mounted up. Just gotta drill a few holes and mount the winch.
Onto the pics.
AF ratio

Bosch 044

Motor basically done

Testing the hoist!!


Winch is nice and tight


A buddy had fun with a label maker

Anybody even look at this thread?! Damn!!
Well got a little done this weekend, rebuilt the front frame again gonna run the radiator in the back. So winch is mounted up front and the inter cooler is as well. Mounted the rear fenders so I can mount the radiator off them.
Few pics

What motor are you going with again?

Looks badass! I think a custom flatbed would look sick like the yota guys do.

Thanks alot guys!!
I think im gonna try and get some tube this week and start a roll cage, basically just a bed cage for now to mount the radiator and tranny coolers. Finished up my bed sides tonight and started looking at tire mount ideas.
Was thinking something like this what do you guys think?



And was thinking of mounting these up here reverse and tail lights.

The tire looks good there. Are you going to keep the stock tails and those extra ones?

I like the look of the tire angled the opposite way but I imagine in your case there likely isn't room.

X2. It wouldn't get in the way backing up on trails either.
