Description

Featuring a higher off the ground than you'd imagine it to be chassis, this all steel truck is painted with a simple custom camouflage motif. Utilitarian and simple are the buzzwords here, with a rag top in black vinyl there are plenty of zip ups that can be taken up or down, and doors that can be removed and easily installed depending on how hot the day gets, or if it rains. Speaking of which, it is equipped with electric wiper motors on both sides of the flat paned windshield. Simple strong drilled aluminum wheels have been equipped with more modern Warn hubs, which is the standard for manual hubbed 4WD. Knobby 32x11.50R15 BF Goodrich tires all around will get you through nearly anything the trail can throw at you. If you really want to get gnarly, take the top off, flip down the windshield and go for it, but don't forget your goggles.
Again, simplicity reigns here, especially with the simple vinyl which actually cushions your ride, while on a smooth surface is surprisingly...Still bumpy! These seats are a front two buckets in black vinyl, both exhibiting some wear and color loss, and with no rear seat there's plenty of room for your gear. A simple metal dash houses essential gauges and several knobs and toggles and thankfully a driver's side ignition switch. A rally style 3 spoke steering wheel fronts the dash and we note that the horn button has been relocated to the dash. Naked green steel floors make up the flooring and a custom brake pedal topper has been added.
A welcome surprise upon lifting the hood is seen. Long gone is the L-headed 4 cylinder and in its place is an orange painted 265ci Chevrolet V8. A 4bbl carburetor is on top under the chrome air cleaner and ribbed aluminum valve covers are on for the dress up. This is attached to a 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive. This is a T-90 transmission, which is also equipped with the Dana 18 transfer case, and a Dana 25 front axle, and a Dana 41 rear axle on the 4-wheeling side both with factory 5.38 gearing...as I said go through anything. Just remember it's not a race, it's about getting there.
