Nice.. Those tires look big. I had that body with the 1.9 rock crushers and they looked similar. Cool truck!

So I decided to abandon the original bumper design as I just couldn't get it sqaure with the tools I have.... So Tube Pre-Runner it is!

Also finished up the tube fenders and rock rails along with the winch mount.

Great build, I will be following. For some reason the background of your shop area makes the truck look even better. Real raw, love it.

If you are wanting to do interior, the new bright JK interior fits perfectly with a just a small gap at the dash to window. Just add a little styrene. I did it on mine and it looks great! Nice build!
