birth of "The Beast"

Post by 4x4troy on 9/19/2011, 8:32 pm

well i have decided to chop the back off and make it a truck kinda thing. i removed almost all the interior and alot of it is not going back in. i gotta get another hatch first so i can build a tailgate to and a block off behind the rear seats. but here is the start.



all the junk thats not going back in.....


looks like it has lifted the back alittle.

i got the rear hatch off and the rear windows have been removed. and i drove it to my other house...its def alot lighter. the rear sits up a good 2" higher then it did. the ride is a bit bouncier but i can live with that. and it is going to get tools, a toolbox, a hi-lift and other stuff put back in it so it should even out alittle. of course the carpet,headliner and some panels are not going back on and a 3'x4.5' section of steel is coming off the top. i will get some progress pics tomorrow.
