That's looking very good. I also like the height of the truck. Not to low, just right for the wheels imo.

I've been toying with the same idea of putting a 7mgte into a 2wd truck. I don't have the patience to deal with body work though.
I doubt it will ever happen for me.

Have you advertised your panels on yotatech.com? They don't have sponsors, and anybody is allowed to post info about their products in the proper sections.

actually it going to be a cut out/vent ... The line follows the door but thats it ... I had to "bump out" the mid section (front to back) to the flare , otherwise the flare just didnt look right . The size made it a challenge , because its the same flare as on the bed .

Yep, scrapping the stock frame ... it had rust issues anyway ... and going to build a frame from scratch .


I looked at the mods to splice in front and rear suspension .. and just figured it would be stupid to do it on a 20+ year old rusty frame .


so I'm looking for a Garage to rent here in Penticton .. so I can get going on the frame . (my shop is just to full)

hey nice job on the fenders. I like how you finished the bodyline.
what are you planning on using for the IRS?
Back when I was on the minitruck scene alot of guys were using older RX-7 rear ends. Not too many into that stuff around here, mostly in the states.

This was my old truck that I built. 97 sonoma, fastbagged 3/8" valves, 1/2" airline, triangulated 4-link rear with 8" stepnotch and bridge. dual 7 gal. tanks and dual 200psi compressors. Layed frame on 20"s; unheard of in kelowna...Used to be able to hop the front about 6" off the ground at 180psi.
If you plan on running air suspension and have any ? let me know. I work in a suspension shop so I can still get all the stuff.
