I met the owner of this rig at Truck Haven in November. I thought it was one of our white Explorers, but it turned out he was there with the jeepaholics website.

The fab work is top notch. Everything is beautifully TIG welded and well thought out. The owner found someone to do this work in their backyard... I sure wish I had those kind of skills.

Anyway, here it is...

oooooh that is pretty!!! cantilevered rear shocks, custom sway bar, did it have an interior cage? doesnt look to be so.


Nice TTB!
 






2wd? Look at the front axle...
 






its actaully a 4wd. there is a whole thread on desert rides about this truck... sweet for sure. that engine cage was a model for my new one. (said my fab guy) one of the best exploders ive seen.

EDIT: ahhh Rick beat me to it. but i found the link!!!! look below
 












sorry i saw the TTB after I posted :)
 






Did he ever sell it?
 






No idea... I doubt it.
 






are those 100% custom outers on those beams? they are still using stock style ball joints
 
























geesh look at the skid plates, look to be stainless steel with beveled edges....wow talk about attention to detail.


gorgeous!!


Do I spy drop brackets? yikes......
 


















:notworthy That is all I have to say...
