    Yeah most likely. I plan on running a race style collapsible one with a quick release.

    Fuck yes, trying to wrap up a very similar build on my '80 hilux, yours is looking awesome. What have you got sorted for the rear?

    Well the plan is to find a complete rear s13 or s14 subframe assembly... Problem is i haven't found one worth buying. Most of them are rusted out. Until then ill keep working on the front lol.

    Welded in and threaded some 1/4" pieces of steel under the top plates to allow me (down the road if needed) to remove or remake them. If I ever plan to change castor angle or plush my suspension outwards.

    Also got a little excited to try out my dimple dies. So I filled in what will eventually be a completed look for my front end. Pretty happy with the look. Only got one side done today but looks pretty decent.

    I will eventually fill in the section behind that you see open. Should look pretty slick when all done when you pop the hoof of a innocent little mazda haha

    Well long time no updates. Garage has been a mess but got a couple things done.
    [​IMG]IMG_5714 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    Went to a season ending cruise night and took a look at some amazing rides. Got quite the stares and "what the heck kind of truck is this?" comments seeing as I was at a classic car meet haha.
    [​IMG]IMG_5710 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    I guess my truck is quite a bit lower then the average.
    [​IMG]IMG_5707 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    Anyways! So I managed to finish the other sides gusset.
    [​IMG]IMG_5721 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    I also filled in this gap...
    [​IMG]IMG_5723 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    and fully smoothed it. This will be the plan for pretty much everything in the front end once finished.

    The Past weekend I took a trip to Montreal for some JDM parts shopping.
    [​IMG]IMG_5727 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    Scored a full front and rear S14 subframe assembly.

    So much love for this build! Also, do all of your trucks have big ass exhaust stacks? They're awesome!

    Hahaha yes they do. I use to do truck pulling a while back and it was a requirement for competing. But originally I did it for the look. My daily mazda I essentially saw an old tractor with a rusted out stack and said to myself "this.... is.... perfect!".

    Unloaded my new stuff.
    [​IMG]IMG_5733 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    Got it set in place and measured out my wheelbase (approximately for now)

    [​IMG]IMG_5746 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    Tossed on a fender and a box side to see what it looks like.
    [​IMG]IMG_5776 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    Wrestled the S14 front assembly and tossed on a inappropriate wheel just for shits. I think 18x11" is a little too wide up front haha

    [​IMG]IMG_5791 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    Now I need to figure out the rear frame design. Waiting for some solid subframe bushings to arrive so I can burn these old ones out and have everything line up nice.

    Pretty damn excited to see it coming together. To some, this might not look like much but seeing my vision actually taking shape is very uplifting.
    [​IMG]IMG_5786 by Alex Lachance, on Flickr

    No pain no gain haha... time to heal.

    The project is coming along perfect mate, I can definitely see the way you are going with this... :cool::cool::cool:

    Just a shame it's not being shown on Discovery Turbo or something, because the fab work is excellent! :confused:

    Definitely one to watch... Well done mate! ;):thumbs::worthy:

    A mate of mine used to have a D21 Navara (basically a B2000), and I was always trying to convince him to run a stack. The bastard never did. Looks so badass...
