My brother and I built this truck and the truck is a great driver and is mechanically very sanitary. The truck could be done very nice if someone wanted to do the bodywork and paint it nice. I would be glad to answer any questions about the truck and I am sure there is a lot I am missing in my description so please feel free to ask. The truck has almost 1000 miles on it since finished.
