Default First hardbody, first build

Whats up guys, i have been looking through this site for a while now and i finally decided to start my own thread just updating on my truck build. I originally was wanting a drift car but with some research and lack of money i decided to pick up a hardbody for a cool $2,900. 130,000 miles and in pretty good shape i took it home and immediately began the clean up.



Next on the list, get rid of the nasty looking stickers on the sides.


Took the truck out to a local car meet, needless to say i wasnt getting much attention lol

Rear bumper delete


Freshened up the engine bay a little

Got some new rims and tires

Some pinto shocks and 3 inch blocks

Lowered 3 inches but needs moar low!!

Painted the grill black and took the truck out for a little beach drift session

As she sits now

She needs alot more work, im wanting to make this thing drift, in the future im wanting to get buckets, hydro ebrake, more lowness, welded diff, exhaust, and i need to figure something out with the suspension. Let me know what you guys think, im open to suggestions and ill keep you guys updated as i make progress.
