Random Pics of your swap truck

This area sure is dead lately. Who still frequents this place? Let's see if we can get a thread going in here that stays active.

Post up some pics of your swap truck. I don't care if you are using it, still building it, or collecting parts for it. Glenn, where are your pics? Mosesburb, where ya at?

Here's a dirty mess I am trying to order pieces for to finish the turbos. I might fix some rust, fix some suspension stuff and just get it driving for now. My wife will just have to wait for paint I believe. That stuff has tripled as well as everything else has gone up. This thing is setting on a trailer not doing me any good.

She's still looking sweet! My orange truck needs rockers now but I have been putting 60 miles a day on it the past few weeks. On Wednesday the LH door latch broke. I had to roll the window down and hold the door for 30 miles at 75mph and 35* and rain. That was no fun.

Ryan,
Is the sub going to be converted to 4 wheel drive?

No sir it's not. She wants it lower than her current family rig. I'd like to put one of Jason Vanatta's roll pan and front spoilers on it. She wants it to not look like a typical truck. Me personally, I'd leave it looking like a stock 68 but it's not mine.

Ryan,
Reno is doing a 68 sub 4X that looks stock, should be very nice when done.
I see if he will post a pic.
