The Horton build lets talk cooling

introducing horton




That is the start of the exocage I am going to build over the next couple of weeks. The fact that I broke the back window has slowed progress until I could get the window replaced hopefully tommorow.

I will post up with future up dates that include changing the leaf springs in the front finishing the cage, one linking the rear, moving the gas tank (again!)

Specs are as follows 60 14b both with detroits 4.56 gears 56" springs in the front 63s in the rear stock tbi 350 turbo 350 trans 203-205 doubler frame is shortened (started out as a longbox truck). 42" pitbull rockers on recentered h1s. I will go find the threads that I have talked about this truck and link them to this thread. A freind and I built it for him and well he got married and his wife hates the truck so I ended up with it

Well with the broken back window I took the cage off to replace the window haven't got the window replaced yet but after some trading and the such.

Horton has new shoes and some new fender trimming 44xreally widex16.5 rockers




I mounted the tires on some older rims I had I am recentering another set of H1s for these but have to wait to get the rims for about 30 bucks each so the chrome mods will stay on for now.

I only needed to trim a little bit but I plan on modding the firewall alot more to allow for more uptravel.

And really hope to get the cage done soon
