I finally get to build the T-100 pretty much how I always wanted. only downside being it's for someone else.
I had a customer come to me for a full build and I figured theres no other truck I have nearly the knowledge about.
He saw how much thought I have put into that thing and knew he would be getting the deal of a lifetime
He has a bunch of property to play on, needs a truck for towing, and also has wanted to get into the sport.
I told him I would put together something he could use to do it all.
1996 t100 (with a 98 cab)
fuel injected LS1 swap, t400 trans, divorced np205 tcase
indefab 4wd LT kit w/ 2.0x10" coilovers and 2.5x10" byp. w/ 3" bumps
full custom heimed/dbleshear-steer kit
custom f. axles 5" over, custom f. d-shaft, r. half of t-100 d-shaft
Deavers out back S.U. with either a cantilever setup or lowpro bedcage
35" tires, tundra glass, bobbed bed, "prerunner" lumber rack, bumpers/spare mount.
1.75" DOM chassis tubes, mix tig/mig where appropriate.
I'm building it so it will pass tech for 1450 to justify putting something of this caliber together for future owners sake. I doubt he will do more then occaisional pismo trips, and rompin on his land. The best part about the build is I will have access to the truck ongoing to use it for kit revisions and CAD input.
Today is day one.
I dug out all the old parts and began cleaning up the frame f.clip for re-attachment
(the frame was used to transfer geometry for my el camino)
I have alot of things here already so it will come together pretty quick. esp. since I have help now =)
