Just kiddin, Im usually at church for weddings and furnerals. HAHA
My name is Jeremy, I live in Eastern OR. I do Blue collar work for a living.
I think my biggest hobby is metal fabrication, and that led me to 4X4s.
In the early days I was into low riders and cars. But my new passion is 4X4s.
My last track was a 82 SR5 toy, named Molotov. There is a build link in Pirate but there site is down so Search it when there site is up. I think it has some informative stuff about building brackets and misc stuff. It had a 4 link rear in it, built from scratch W/weld on Johnny Joints. I did it all for around $350. My 4 link was designed by me, and inputed to a 4 link calculator
My current project is Molotov II.
Its a 95 toy x-cab, Got the truck for $200, was a rust bucket,well everything but the cab. It now has 4 link rear, detroit, and 4.88s,shaved, disc brakes from monte carlo.
Working on the front now, SAS is all welded, RUF, custom box location. Housing is gusseted, trussed, shaved, Powertrax, (aussie spare), 4.88s.
It rides on 36 12.50 SX Swampers
Engine will be 96 chev 4.3l v6 CPI, w/ painless harness, and maybe a turbo.
Havent decided on a tranny yet, But I do have a 5spd w/ a 4.7 gear to install.
The 4x4 frame was very rusty so I found a 2x4 frame to start with.
I am very open to offer insite on how I did things so just ask.

Thanks
Thats a short bed too.
Notice the two back feet under the front tire;
W/ a tool box full of chains, pulleys, spare battery.
That was a long day, got a flat w/no spare on a sunday, blew a rad hose, alternator quit, lost my front license plate.
But yes, it was worth it.
