image.jpeg Well...... FINALLY getting started on this project.
Mostly using leftover stuff from other builds. So far, i'm out a grand total of ZERO dollars!

Mostly from parting out a '92 Dogde dually and a '95 YJ and keeping the parts i wanted/needed. image.jpeg
Bought this bed and some H1 wheels and tires for $250 off CL

Took the dodge bumper extension brackets off to move bumper closer to the grill.
I think it looks meaner! Body is only laying on the frame at this point. Gotta fab up some body mounts....
Also made some turn signal hole filler panels.... Thise turn signal are impossible to find!!! Apparently, its the same lens as a Ferrari Mondial 8. I found just the lenses for $249 each on ebay 😦, so i'm going a different route.

On all of mine the plastic body of the lights has just crumbled away. $249 each? I'm rich! I have two!!

Awhile back, I managed to score this 500 c.i. v8 from a '76 Coupe Deville w 40k miles for FREE!!! Bought the car for scrap w no title, pulled the engine and trans, then sold the remainder for exactly what I paid. The pic ^ is not the actual car! but it was exactly like it..... just not as nice.
Ran the car b4 pulling...... everything was good 😎
