I built the "white trash" that Chris youngs owns. I used a rolled locked 80 and it was cool. I definitely would NOT do it again, though. I'd use some kind of pickup and go from there. It was a pain in the ass.

It started here:

Went to here:

And ended up here when I sold it to Chris.

I loved seeing that truck on the club's unofficial Valentines day ride. It looks freaking amazing. Great job! I really love the look of these flatbed/tube frame pickups. 80 or taco or whatever... I really love the ones with leaf springs so I may go that route eventually in the next year or two. Wife laughed at me and told me to get "one of those cute land cruisers"-- "You mean a 40?" - "Yeah- that one"... so I may go that route in the next year or so but help me god I will also build a tube frame thing... I need to learn to weld in any case for some sculpture work I want to do... tube frame flatbed sounds like good practice... and I really want to drive one around arlington and dc as a grocery getter between off road trips just to scare my condo neighbors...

The other option is to buy one already built. They have typically been wheeled so you can get them for cheap.
