    MT-TOY'S 82 REbuild V119.0 build thread.

    20 year project 82 LWB. Some of you may remember this pile. Been tinkering lately after a decade hiatus. Last I updated my thread on Pirate was probably 2010. A lot has changed in 10 years and not with the truck. 2 cross country moves, 2 more crotch crickets, a new wife, and an 8 year stint going crazy blowing up/tearing down buildings 80 hours a week put a strain on my free time.

    Good to see some of the OGs here.

        I had a good run throughout the spring then summer temps hit and woodwork jobs came in. Been pretty busy making money instead of spending it.

        Thanks Man. I'll try to update as I can and go back and take picks of shit I barely remember doing 😎

        Not planning on going back to the OG build thread to retrieve posts.

          Reworked the bed to have wheel wells and a place to mount shocks, sunk a 19 gallon fuel cell and a bigger toolbox to help keep COG low. Dual optimas are going in the driver's side well and CO2 tank on passenger side.

              I'm about 25 miles south of Richmond VA now. No decent wheeling anywhere near.

                  Petersburg? Chesterfield? Prince George Co? I grew up in that area, still know a few guys that wheel in that area.

                  Glad to see this build coming back into the mix, following for updates.

                    There's wheeling in PA North of me and Tennessee southeast of me. All at least 200+ miles away. I haven't even found a testing spot yet. I don't like anything about Virginia except my wife and that's why I'm here. Planning on moving back to Montana eventually.

                      Edge of the Appomattox river on the CH side. I'm a poor now😂
                      Not far from VSU
                      Good to see you here, Man. *Pirate salute*

                        Well at least you arent that far from some wheeling in the western part of the state and the interstate will let ya cover ground quick when you need to drive to go wheel somewhere. Alxj64 is also gonna be moving out that way in the next few months a little farther west of ya.

                        Next time you are in Petersburg check out King's Barbecue, good shit fo sho!!

                          I've eaten there! Tried to sell them some cherry scrap of my sawmill too.
                          I've been here since Feb of 2018 and traveled pretty much all over the state. Sure pretty here but the blue haired screechers in RVA are killing the vibe in short order. I've never seen such backwards shit as here. King Ralphie needs Kennedy'd soon.

                            Trying out an idea with a 3 chamber airbag that I'll fill or dump from the cab. Plumbed into the CO2 tank and controlled with a valve and gauge. Want to be able to lift the rear in a stuck or tow my sawmill into wood lots without getting stuck. It pivots at the axle to keep the bag relatively vertical during articulation.
                            It's probably a jackass idea, but it's worth a try. I don't plan on running much air. It's good for 13"-14" of travel vertically.

                              Here's a couple of pics of the wheel wells going in. Uptravel will be nice. What a pain in the ass.
