my project QUAD CAB

Ok for starters
1.I cannot afford buying, shipping and kiss the gov. **** to bring a Quad cab here to the states.

2. I have the know how ( i think) to do this project

3. My 10 year old daughter and I need something to do this winter

4. It is going to be a cheap build ( all vehicles cost $1000 together )

5> I get to play with my new toy that is advertised here on the site

6. As an added bonus my wife will leave me alone she never goes out to the barn yahoooooooo j/k dear yes dear rite away dear ect ...lol

W start out with 2 1993 rangers both 4.0/ auto both 4x4 both with axle code 91 so the drivetrain is easy somewhat one is a splash short box stepside other is a ext cab xlt yes both have gray interior

I also have a 96 exploder for the other gray buckets headliner console carpet ect hope u all get the picture. it is a 4 door so i can utilize the door posts and rear windows in the rear doors of ranger.

the rear doors for truck are going to be cut to the window size of the explorer with the rear quater window. this is why i bought the explorer.

the explorer is striped down and setting out side the ext cab is comming in without a box for dismantle and the the splash

when both trucks are ready to pull cabs i will put both in barn at same time to work on them i will post pics in am whem moderator if they approve this project

i need some names for the truck any ideas?? thanks all

Two people actually voted waste of time?

IMO, even if the idea isn't that good, at least he is going to spend time WITH HIS DAUGHTER rather then sit on the couch and watch TV all day like some people on the board while their kids are doing other things. That's not a waste of time. The girl will learn something, and they will remember the time they spent together.

Rob, I voted for Bad ****. This project will be that. If I had the time and money and the know how, I would probably try it. Good luck, and take pictures, man.

lol that wasn't my intention

the problem i have is that i live next to the u.s. border so 90% of the cars (mine included) are american, you just legalize them and that's it, so the junkyards are full of american cars, it's really hard to find a mexican built car/truck in a junkyard.

There's another member here who wants a crewcab also, and i've been looking around for a cab or rear doors or whatever i can find for him with no luck, but i'm still looking...

BTW that blue truck on the link is located in Peru

Talking about this, isn't there a way for you guys to get a car built here in Mexico (or any other country) legalized in the states? couldn't you just buy a mexican built crewcab? maybe not running or something so it's cheaper?

4 door Tacoma's are all over the place. I can go to the Toyota dealership and there is a whole row of 4 doors. I guess they are just scarce where you are from.

Also I think this would be bad **** if youcan get this project going.
