Default Pop's Topkick 6x6 build!

So I built myself a 6x6 and the old man almost lost it. Gotta have one he says, but money is tight with the kitchen remodel then I says lemme look around and see what I can come up with bingo I had a stock pile of tlt parts collecting dust old j2tt chassis with a trans already on it! A bit of aluminum square stock and a sic Topkick body that will get a big rig style tow boom eventually

Got the pass thru center axle done bolted up the frame rails to the j2tt for the tranny drop and set everything out to see how it will look with mud pluggers on it







He don't get the wheels, but the tires are for this build

thanks, was looking for an easy way to keep weight down low and have decent driveshaft angles and that was the easy solution going to have the shock towers mount on the long rails above each axle not to the j2-tt chassis. working on getting links under it.
