    Thanks guys I really appreciate all the compliments. Y'all have boosted me to a new level of thinking about this project lol. And stephencowan I would trade you temporarily time to time. Just because you are the first person to ask me and made me laugh my a** off dude. I work 3 more days then I'm off for my 7. Got a welding machine today. So I'm gonna try to not let y'all down for something cool.

    I'm starting to think custom frame?
    What y'all think? Any tips?

    I have OCD also and find that people with ocd tend to be extra handy and skilled with our hands, when we have an idea we usually jump in with both feet and produce some amazing work and talent and your pics prove it. Keep them coming buddy !!!

    What is styrene ? Maybe a stupid question but I for some reason don't know what that is unless I'm not thinking right.. CAuse hobby lobby didn't know what I was talking about so I'm asking is it like foam or what? I would love to know cause all the stuff ppl build with it... I wanna extend.

    Styrene is modeling plastic. It's usually white. You should be able to get it from a hobby shop. My local hobby lobby didn't have it either. Or you can order it off the Internet.

    So a friend of mine was apparently bored surfing the interweb. And decided to send me this cuz he new how obsessed with my project I am. And he kinda got my mind wondering. What you guys think. But maybe a crew cab. Idk if he's a friend or foe yet, cuz I know he sent it to make me have something else to think about after I told him I decided on a plan. Opinions??????? Leave mine in the track it's going or chop and merge. Ps with the axles width I'm getting dually is an option.
