You know.....where's waldo? All I gotta say is LOL! At the responses before I submitted the pic! I didn't tell anyone what was going on. Got some texts from Tre...."Did yous get in an accident?" I respond with "lol wut". "Nicole said she saw your truck in town and said the front end was all smashed or some **** lol". Add some facebook gossip to the mix...

Then the photo was posted. And I got some PM's....this one happened to be the funniest ones of 'em all....

Then one titled "i feel like a ra-tard!". LOL.





So...lets have a little story... I've always had this vision of a Junkyard themed contest with my truck in a line up of rangers in a yard....no fenders, hood, bumper, a light hanging off of it and maybe the valence barely hanging on for dear life, no bed, no wheels/tires and sitting on those two wheels welded together "jackstands". I saw this contest as an excellent opportunity to follow through of my little vision. I just about accomplished it. I talked to my buddy's at the local small yard and they managed to squeeze me in on friday just as they were closing. I was given about a half hour to make it all happen. Unfortunately, they were so slammed during the week, they couldn't get the expo moved for me(you'll see in a pic below).




Big thanks to Grant/DangerRanger01 for giving me a hand during that small timeframe I had to shoot in and Thanks to Oregon Auto Wrecking for letting me do this! Dan, you rock!!




Enough blahblahblah.......what ya'll clicked this thread to see.....JY truck whoring....



How I drove it to the yard...

This pic shows what the vision in my head wanted.... I wanted my truck next to the silver '01-02... The shot would've been awesome because it'd be 3 rangers all in one shot. Oh well.

Wow, nice job. So it was just for the shoot, no big plans in the works?

You really had me going for a while.

no ****! It's getting pretty damn old let me tell ya.

But the time it took to semi-strip the truck was only about an hour. lol. Fenders are back on it now but still no bumper or grille or inner fenders. LOL. Gotta work out some exhaust leaks and hopefully find me a cadi horn tomorrow to say good bye to this here scooter horn. lol. THEN everything can go back on. lol.

This is the craziest thing I've seen on here in awhile. Very cool idea though! Your truck would be a friggin gold mine to any of us if it was just sitting at a junkyard.
