My 2WD 1998 XLT Project AGAIN (prerunner)

Nice, I’m looking at the work you are doing to put the engine cage with internal roll bar. That’s crazy!!!

Haven't been working on expo, it's still in the works. Put on pause because of moving to different state

This truck is so sweet. I hate the F150 front glass UNLESS you have the width to make it look proper. On your truck it looks proper! Nicely done.
Would love to see your steering box setup
Good luck with the move! Which direction are you headed?
 












Mounted the Giant 64 Link Killers
And almost completed tire swing, capable of mounting 37s

Pulling 20.75" out of 21" from the Link killers.

Got a trailer to tow this thing around once completed. Plus have other projects I'm working on that needs to be towed around.

May have cut a little too much, however, I can clear 40s if ever feel the need

:popcorn: I want one I went the other way lol basically the same truck tho
 






wicked cool build, hard to believe those springs with that much arch could be soft and supple....... some really nice parts going into this pre runner.
 






Started a roof light rack, holds five 7" lights
Will be bolt on so it can be removed for trail riding

Trying to come back to life
Repositioned the bumper. Front three tubes were about 11" and now they're 1.5"

Welded up bottom bracket for the AC condenser, the top/side brackets will be tied into engine cage.
Majority of people ditch the AC in builds ive noticed, and i see why.

keep the AC!
Not all prerunners ditch the ac, in fact a good PRERUNNER should have all the amenities, only the race truck gets stripped of ac for use out in the desert!!! I like the new trailer
Twin 37's hanging over the rear bumper!!
 












Finally got around to Tig/Mig up parts. Outside of all brackets are tig and inside are mig
