    This poor truck got its ass kicked from every angle. I appreciate your effort

    fuck yeah it did… 😎 The single cabs took the most grunt of all of em… big ol work horses!!!

    WAIT. Could that be a new name for this lil’cab? The work-pony? Miniature work horse? Quarter-horse?

    “Work Pony” 😎 😎 😎   Then SHREK gets out of it… You need a shrek outfit…. 😎  Bug Guy…. Can’t wait to see you at a get together with your little green pony…. 😎 😎 😎

    OK… Back to working..  I did get that inner structure mostly done yesterday..  I don’t like doin them!!!   You gotta watch a lot of shit or you will end up in SHIT when you go to hang this door… angles etc, all of it matters here.   If it doesn’t look right, it probably isn’t…

    So as you can see…. LOTS of mockup…  lots of clean up… Lots of checking things twice…

    I should finish this up before I head out for Moab… 😎

    Be awesome if you could bring your beam and trans with brakes, ready to bolt on, or close and bring it all with ya and get it on the ground and looking awesome before you leave… and then… welll, we may as well wire it up and install a motor and drive it too…. 😎

    I am hoping to do just that. I already got a shortened wiring harness, the rebuilt trans and engine sitting here. I got to dig up axles and tubes and engine sheet metal. I have a narrowed beam with welded dropped spindles too. Just not sure if my rims will fit over the big snouts on the front brake drums

    Your planting a new tree?  and it’s “yours”?  in the mountains though.  not in your yard… 😎
