I was looking through the member's rigs page just a minute ago and saw the guy with the black completely modified 80 that's now a 85 i guess. Man that thing is trick. 500 hp holy ship!! Was that the inspiration for the shortbus? Just curious.
The Ausies were first with the idea. They do them in all kinds of configuration. If you are interested in it, I wrote an article in Toyota Trails. Join TLCA (see banner ads on this site) and ask them for the back issue. I believe it was two issues ago.
Pretty much wanted a hard core 80 wheeler with minimal body. No body, no body damage
