WTF Friday: ‘rixtoy’

5

While browsing one of my favourite threads on s10forum (most hacked shit ever seen)  I stumbled upon this truck that at a first (very quick) glance looked like a cool project but as I scrolled down I was reminded exactly what thread I was browsing through.

Bodied, tube framed, swapped, and RHD this truck has all the right ingredients for cool truck but the overall execution leaves just a hair to be desired.

This was the first picture I saw that peaked my interest…

I was intrigued further still by this back half that has a very non traditional rear and and it appears as though the frame is the air tank

This image does a better job of showing how the suspension works

But then….

That’s not a whole lot of floor…

Hrm…

After these photos were posted another member posted a link to the build thread where more pictures of this truck could be found:

I’m hoping it’s just the photo but this looks really crooked

Black was a better look than the white

The body at some point or another

The chassis in all it’s glory

Also the icing on the cake is this video of the owner driving it earlier in the build with a jack stand supporting the rear suspension.

The stand predictably falls out and the truck lays out hard enough to lift the rear wheels off the ground. Funny how that happened pretty well in the best place it could have.

If you want to see more the build thread is here.

I know it wasn’t all that long ago but here is what an extremely well done frame looks like.
