I've been meaning to update this thread with pics from the new owner, I recieved a few new pics today and thought some of you would enjoy. The new owner has really taken the truck to the next level I had dreamed about, but could not afford. It now has a full interior, AC, heater, headsets, gps and new glass and paint that cover the front track completely.

Not a fan of the front glass, but love the rest. I saw the truck at the BITD Silver State pre-run, the new owners looked to be having a blast with it.

I too like the glass you had better (not a fan of the huge TT clips or bedsides) but the thing does look nice. Good to see it is being finished and used!
Have you flown in a ford lately?

Ryan and Chasetruck - The aggressive TT style glass isn't my favorite either, but it is the only fiberglass available that covers the 90" track. I do think it looks alot more "calmed" or "toned" down then I would have thought.

Steve - The truck definitely looks alot different. I'm sure you will see the truck in the desert sooner or later. The new owner will be using it to prerun most if not all BITD races.

this truck gives me a hard on. haha

i have a v8 t100 DD project im in the middle of right now but itll never be close to this.

p.s. a tundra 4.7 fits nicely in my t100 frame without the steering rack in the way.

I know this thread is pretty dead but I'm a huge fan of this build. Excellent work. Do you do any work on the side?

Thanks for the compliment. Unfourtunately I don't have the space or time to fabricate on the side, but I'm always willing to consider CAD design or CAM progamming work.

Glad to see its still rolling and went to a good Home I had most of the cash at one point and talked to you about it a bunch but the wife just woldn't let me buy it as a daily driver and was about $10k short hope you got close to what you were asking ... a true work of art > i will have to admit i love the Original glass but understand the function of the full width stuff when its more than a pavement princess..... I hope something new is on the horizon for your talent ..
I love it when it stinks,my truck of coarse

The truck was alot of fun to drive on the street and I loved every minute of it, but made a terrible daily driver. The truck did go to a really good home and the new owner has made me proud. It would be awesome to see another set of glass made off my old set keeping the toned down "sleeper" look yet covering the track. I believe the new owner considered the option, but for $10k+ couldn't justify it. As far as future projects go, I'm dying to start another project, but I'm at the point where a house is more important. As soon as I feel I'm where i need to be career and financial wise, I gurantee I will be jumping into another project.

This is just an update for David... well and anyone else that want to take a peek LOL. I wanted to share that the TRD Supercharge actually fit in the hole. Barely! But it did fit with enough clearance. I am still working on the tune but yes, its in the truck! You can also see what I had to do to get an A/C compressor to fit and work.

Interesting compressor mount for sure. Are you enjoying the truck? Got any more pics to share?
