    Yet another build that makes me regret selling off my '90 after it burned, would've been perfect for this type of thing.

      Yeah, his pictures make it look like a half hour house renovation on TV.

        Got it running enough for a test drive. Ripped around the neighborhood with open exhaust. Man this thing drives nice. Feels way lighter too. Gonna be a lot of fun on the trails. Will post a few driveway pics tomorrow.

          Pics from last weekend. The kids are realizing the possibilities of a rolling jungle gym. My little girl has already stated that she wants to go real fast on big hills. She's in for a treat!

            Looking good man!

            I'm sure your neighbors enjoyed the motor noises too.

              Thanks! Anyone want to share their opinion on the exhaust? I had cheap turbo mufflers before and don't want to put them back on. They seemed too restrictive. A good friend has 2 pairs of flowmasters he has offered to donate. Both are 3" pipe, one set is 13" long and the other 17" i think. I'm kind of leaning toward running the short ones. Currently I have 2.5" from the headers back past the t-case. Figured I'll run 3" duals from the mufflers back past the axle/rear bumper. Anyone think that will be too loud for trail riding? The other option I have in mind is to install a pair of cut-outs in front of some quiet mufflers. I figure that might be beneficial if I ever take this to go hog hunting, etc... I'm open to suggestions.

                I am not typically a fan of GM engines in Fords, but the Cadillac 500 is just to cool to be upset

                Normally buggies built off a production frame come out looking like shit, but the lines are yours aren't bad at all. What are the plans for the front? It would be cool to finish up the tube work and hang some Ford skins on it kind of like SnowRacer did.

                  Was this called the Brown Trout before?

                    I do intend to hand some fenders back on the front to keep the ford truck look. I have antique tags already so I'd like to pass it off as a 93 F-350 so I can drive it around some without too much trouble from the po-po.

                      It was the brown clown, aka the turd, aka the shit missile... I'm thinking I should paint the new skins brown and add a bunch of bass boat flake to make it look like a turd rolled in glitter. Keep the brown/gold color scheme that it used to have.
