The $ 500 Red Rider (27th Jan 09 at 9:40pm UTC)
Since Im new here and some may not know me or my rig here it is....I didnt take to many pics because I was to busy working on it and when Im not working on it Im doing the single daddy thing taking care of my son, so hers what I got......

It strated life as an unabused 85 xtracab in San Jose was a single owner 150,000 mile truck owned by an old man and some fuckhead pill popper bought it :homo: and toasted the motor within a week, throwing a rod threw the side of the block....here it is when I first went to look at it
Image

I gave the Dad of the drugie $500 for it and stuck it on a trailer and took it home, cleaned it up and purchased a motor from Cole (thanks buddy) for $300 and slapped her in cleaned up the truck thru some new killer 31's on it and whabam

Thing wheeled in the sno pretty well I was showing up some lifted jeeps on iron mountain road until I did this

After putting 5000 on it or so I decided fuck it I like driving my diesel daily better so Im cutting this thing up and building a rig
Image
And there went the neiborhood Cole and I both building rigs at the same time boy our neibors loved us!!! :flipoff: :flipoff:

Re: The 0 Red Rider (27th Jan 09 at 9:59pm UTC)
Basically I ripped everything out from the motor back, both axles and the trans/tcase. Welded up a new front mount plated the front of the frame, Welded new mounts in the rear plated the frame at the slider mounts with wrap around plate and added gussets to the slugs, mounted a cool looking but gay weak ass marlincrawler bumper (which was bent so bad I cut it off after 2 trips to the con') Dual cased the mofo with marlins 10 degree rotated adapter and mounted it with a front range of road crossmeber and used there cut skidplate since the second case is rotated 10 degrees moving the front yoke up higher for more ground clearence I also did away with the lame rubber mounts that break underneath since my shit mounts with a plate and two polybushings on the side of the frame, I also added my own gussets to the plates that came from front range just to make it that much stronger since yota frames are a little on the thin side. gusseted the fuck out of the front axle, welded covers on both and plated around the drain plugs to keep the stock metal from mushrooming around the plug making it worthless (this was a great mod) made some double toyota rear packs for the front and some s10 springs out back which ended up coming out for 64"chevys later cuz they sucked ass (too stiff) Thers lots of little shit like this mod to the radiator support to clear the steering box since I stretched the fron 3 inches
Image

other than that theres a few other things like V6 calipers, doug thorley header, aluminum radiator, dual diaphram brake booster, bigger master cylinder, thick wall driveline out back and now a 1/4" wall for the front cause this happened at soup bowl around thanksgiving

and enough talk hers a few pics

Re: The 0 Red Rider (28th Jan 09 at 2:32am UTC)
that would be a negative, the driver side took some heat at soup bowl and a few dings on the pass.. And I took one hard in the bed on the driver side that about the size of a basketball but its a wheeler....Im fixing the big dent in the bed., dovetail'n and bobb'n the bed 12inches each way and then as soon as my diesel sells Im buying a bender and its gonna get a cage hopefully by summer I'll at least have the bed done. Its also getting the rear springs inboaded and gas tank moved when I do the other bed mods

The pics of it in the post are from the con on 11/27/08 and the one of it at prairie city was like a month ago but its just a front shot, I just finished it in August so there all kinda recent, next time its outta the garage I'll get some pics of the dents that the only change as of now, it should have 37's on soon a guy on the pirate board is gonna be up here from Socal with some 37 iroks Im gonna pick up in the next couple weeks, I cant wait cuz the 8 inch rims with 4 inch backspacing they dont help the stability it flexs good but would just feel more stable with 10 inch rims and 14 inch wide tires over the 8's with the 35x10.50's just the rims would make me 5 inches wider with 3.5 backspacing 10inchers Id like to find some 2.5 backspace rims

I also have already widened the front axle using ifs hubs so it matches the wider 86up rear without any spacers, and soon I hope to order my full floater kit for the rear that also converts to rear disc, not such a $500 truck anymore I'll say, Ive got some coin and time into this thing

That what I get for fucking around on a loose pile of rocks at my job, good thing my framer was near by with a gradall to pull me back over. I was getting on the rock on my driver side started to spin and the pass. front spit out a big rock and made a nice little hole I slammed it in reverse just to start tipping ever so slowly and it sat down so nice it didnt even make a noise only put a ding in the bed and a little fender damage that was easily knocked back out the side mirror didnt even break and the truck was resting on it Smiley

The fawker is clean underneath though...lmao Thers the rock behind my front I spit out thats all it took just that extra foot of drop fawked me over...oh well it was fun I was laughing as it went over
