Actually I get a lot of people that wonder why it is not slammed on the ground
with a set of 22's on it with a vortec motor. I was told at a Goodguys show that if I decided to lower it and make it a 2WD he would shoot it for a magazine but could not sell the 4x4.

NOT worth it. This thing pegs out the cool-o-meter just as it sits right now. It deserves every first place it gets. They don't want it in their mag?? Meh, their loss, not yours.

Re: Project Penicillin~ 68 crewcab build up!

Well some people just don't know what cool is. That would not only make the truck almost useless, it would also make it ugly as hell.

Re: Project Penicillin~ 68 crewcab build up!

Its cause you in Cali yo. Around here, the lowered trucks are rare an people walk right by. A truck like yours would be a huge hit. Especially if it had a Cummins. :-)

Re: Project Penicillin~ 68 crewcab build up!

I just read the entire post, great build, craftmanship is top notch and kudos to him, should give up his day job and make more people happy. Mayco did a good job on the paint. would be very proud to call this mine, would you like my house as a trade?

I didn't go back to look, but if they are a brass color, they are CLECO pins. Useful to draw panels of metal tight together. Trevor
