Show off your Truck!!
« on: March 09, 2015, 01:44:10 PM »
Hey lets have some fun here... We all know about the build threads, and follow/update them religiously. What we also need here is a thread where we can show off our trucks even when we're not wrenching or modding.

Maybe you've just given her a bath and snapped a few photos, or got a new set of shoes... post pics!

Just crawled all over a Kia at the local mall, are frame deep in mud, or just hitched up the trailer and are heading out with your RV for vacation?? Yep you got it... pics!

Don't be shy... we all like trucks (among other things)... so let's see what you've got!

I'll start things off...

Just got my LBZ, and gave her a much needed bath after riding cross country on a gooseneck...

Man, that truck looks real good Kyle. You'll be happy with it.
Never thought to snap a pic of mine this weekend, it got it's annual bath...lol.
Not quite that bad, but it's sure showing its mileage on gravel compared to how yours looks.
I'll grab one tonight if I remember.

Thanks. Yours too. Really like the look of that LBZ. Nice and clean.

My dad had the LLY. Until someone last August decided they needed it worse than he did. Truck was a beast. Was what inspired me to buy my lml

Heck of a deal when you try and be a good citizen and perform your civic duty (jury) and your truck gets stolen while at the courthouse. (Downtown Houston) have yet to see it again.

Ok, I"ll bite.

2006 LBZ, 110k, leveled with 17 wheels, DSP5. Just got a 6 inch lift since it needs tires and maybe Ill put on the HD bumpers then too.

My flip and swap subs, both 91s. 1500 gets flipped, 2500 gets a 6BT and 0ne ton axles (all in hand)

1987 El Camino, 400k+ miles, just put in another 200r4 and have a complete 5.3 swap for it on the floor.

1986 Samurai, got a 1.6 tracker motor for it, 6;1 t case kit.

I had to do a double take on that Sammy. Other than the tires, it looks identical to the one I just sold....even missing the front bumper!

I looked for the stock wheels to keep it narrow, tires are a size up and new. Had to cut all the stock hangers off will build a nice bumper to mount a 4500# winch with synthetic line. When I got the tracker motor $500 (1.6 vs 1.3-bolt in with a simple plate) I got the seats too and sold the carcus for $400. It should be a nice hunting/fishing rig.

I see scouts all over here. There was a guy in Vallejo that had a whole bunch in a garage, mostly rust free too.

Soon to contribute: my wife went behind my back and traded in the 04 Yukon for an 03 LB7. should be arriving from OH this week. I'm pretty stoked to be getting back into a diesel. EGR and injectors have been done recently, anything else I should be looking for? I promise to post pics asap so I'm not JUST hijacking this thread.

Don't have my truck anymore. XJ still hasn't had her rust cut out and fixed, is still missing the front fender flares... She's just not camera ready. Although it has been high 50s this week so far and is supposedly going to continue on for awhile.

Ok I will play....

"Broom-Hilda" My daily driver/beater, 1992 CTD 5spd/rear Detroit, front Power Lock/on 38 Michelin XML's. It's ugly, slightly possessed, and abused daily. It also has a 2000lb Eagle lift on the rear, and a small hackberry tree growing on the dash. 



This is "Patch" A 91.5 CTD Automatic truck. It's mostly stock with about 74K on it. We bought it out of a farmers field last fall, spent a few hours getting it running and fixing the brakes and have been driving it ever since. It also gets about daily driven and spends a lot of time with a trailer behind it of some sort.



This is my wife's Ramcharger, also a CTD Dana 60/14Bolt Detroit's, Alcan springs, assorted other goodies.



Two of the three We own...these two run and drive.



there are a few more but... well that's all the pictures I have handy.

Those 38's are with no lift whatsoever.

Yes my wife built most of that truck herself. She started with a 40k mile one owner Ramcharger. She then bought a 1992 CTD W250 for parts. Between her and a few of the kids she had that W250 stripped down to a bare frame in 6 hours.

She then spent that winter rebuilding the Cummins, the Nv4500 she bought new someplace. She redid the Axles and transfer-case as well. She built the entire underhood wiring harness from scratch and made all her own intercooler tubes.

Now that she has it done and has drove it a while she has a new plan. We will be borrowing the engine at the very least for the Crew Cab project and when that's finished she intendeds to spend next winter turning the Ramcharger into a lowered corner carving street toy...*eyeroll

Kind of late to the party but been running. Haven't even washed the rigs in a long time. 1969 ElCamino that is fun to drive but won't tow much. Numbers matching 350/350.
 2011 2500 HD short bed GMC, stock with a cap and bed rug in the back. Nice to sleep in while hunting or fishing. I don't haul stuff, I tow stuff. Two boats, a 14,000 lb dump trailer, 12,000 lb flat bed trailer, and a 34 ft 11,500 lb travel trailer. Also my daily driver

Back in the fall when I was moving hay to our property.


Few weeks back once again moving hay to our property after playing in the mud.
