    Lots of things in thw works, so just an update of the "plans."

    Hopefully by the winter...

    Chopped Top with the rest made to fit with a truck bed cap or similar (canvas?)
    I need to be able to drive this on the street in the winter so I cant have it open.

    Exo Cage/ integrated tire carrier water/fuel/hilft in chopped area.
    Tube bumper
    d30 hung in place, used to mock up for a d44.

    By Next Summer (in time for 11th annv. run)
    built d30/44 depending on funds

    Im counting on the transmission blowing any day now, and I think the head gasket is leaking (choc milk coolant) IF it does, ill either throw in a manual trans and repair the head gasket, or do the 302 swap (or possibly a 350 or one of the amc v8's).

    Im getting a new vehicle ('00 stang gt) this summer for sure, so I can take all the time I need on these projects.


    I also have a few small things that Ill do if I ever feel like it.

    Rust coat the undercarriage
    Repair the rockers and bedline (maybe do the whole thing in bedliner?)
    Finish my half doors
    Make a new center console out of fiberglass with spots for my iPod, maglight, ka-bar, a few cups, and my gauges/switches.

    Like the truck sno, but I nhave a question and seeing your truck you will definitly be able to answer this.

    Im currently looking for a explorer stly such as yours, and looking for 33' possible 35" how much room do you have for the 33' as far as travel when you wheel? can you fit a 35'. Im asking this so I can estimate the amount of lift I will need depending on my decision on tire size.

    Thanks.

    I could fit a 37, which im doing very soon. With just a 6" lift you should be able to clear 35's.

    I've got 5.5" of lift on my truck on 33's with no problems (except for the offset) and I could probably tuck 35's under with just minor trimming. Rim size and offset will make a big difference when it comes to rubbing when turning.

    I have a 3" body lift and with minor trimming on the inside corners, 33's fit perfect at full lock and full compression.
