Tube or New Cab? (7th Jan 10 at 8:00pm UTC)
Im linking the rear of my toyota here soon.... I want a vote to keep just the floor and firewall and make my 4 seater chassis fit or just get a new cab and keep the toyota a truck which will get the rear cut out and turned into a 3 seater? My cab is super toast I cant even make half doors fit, A pillars are bent roof is a wrinkled tin can etc etc its pretty much scrap metal....

Remember too that I want to be wheelin by May and don't have a lot of time!

i say tube or use your 4 seater chassie if you still have it. You wouldnt have that much work to do and you would be able to beat on it for more than one season before you need to put another cab on it {Grin}

Rigless but I do have a 63 caddy now!
Trying to find a rig asap is in the works

bodies are cool and so are tubed rigs and you will get mixed opinions from both . the buggy guys will say hands down buggy and the full/ half bodied rig guys will say the opposite its a matter of opinion and they both have there pros and cons .. just my 02 cents

I voted tube chasis if you still have it because you don't have to go buy a new cab. Save money and get that rig ready for wheeling in the spring!

Thanks for the votes, Im still up in the air on this partially because I have been going without glass in my toy since july-august and it can get a bit chilly at times but nothing a sheet of lexan on a tube chassis can't fix either! I do have the chassis still the tarps have leaked a little and the top side of the tube will need a little sanding but its not bad, If I stay full bodied I will be cutting out the cab or looking for a 4runner since I need more seats (want to take my little guy more often and don't like him going when there is not a door or anything to protect him)

I found a complete 4 runner with blown head gasket and back fees cheap if I can score it Ill be able to part it for the money I get it for possibly more so we'll see what happens
