honestly parts are dirt cheap right now. especially if you can visit so cal

I'm hoping to be in this one about $2500 in parts. including the full cage, v8, suspension seats, and shocks.

Going to depend largely on if this v8 and trans are worth a damn that I got with the truck.

Nothing yet, I've got my quad torn apart redoing the top end before halloween taking up space and time. After that's done it gets moved in. Just need some seats and ill be able to tear it all down and start with the cage. Got some 14" king rem res 2.0 c/o's for the front, and 18" 2.5 fox smooth bodies rem res for the rear deavers. I plan on keeping the 289 c4 combo as long as its good. There are a few built for pretty cheap still floating around.

After Jank took me for a ride in his modified trophylite (with honda v6 power...) I think I wanna skip the whole prerunner and build one of those!!! doing 100mph on a dirt road is kinda cool...then using motocross berms as jumps at speed was really impressive.....plus Jank doesnt mind if I measure and copy with bend-tech....... The honda motor is the cheapest part of that build!!! $400! Shocks are gonna hurt at $8k plus!!!

interesting, so your planning on going full tube chassis trailer queen? The shock package can be pieced together for a lot less than retail if you don't car about shiny new, just gotta know the right places to look!

I wouldn't mind having a trailered go fast rig, but I think i'd want to race it!

I think so! Maybe I just need someone to take me for a ride in a real prerunner to change my mind.....

So wheres the good shock deal to be had???? I like the trophy lite as it doesnt really use anything exotic for brakes or hard parts(rear axle...9" with explorer brakes...front gm3 calipers...th350 trans.....)

Gives me a good reason to bend some tube!!!

The dezertrangers forum is a pretty big so cal board, see a lot of used stuff pop up in the for sale section. From bumps, to 2.0 coil carriers, up to 4 tube 3.5 bypasses. I got my 2.0 kings off of pirate actually from a guy in susanville complete tripple rate setup with springs for $360 the pair.
