Well my power window works on the driver side but the switch on the D-side doesnt work for the passenger side. So I need a switch for the passenger side door to tell if the motor is good.:confused: Anyways great looking rig man good luck on the sale.

I'm shure there is more, but I can't think of it right now. I'm not gonna list this any where else, and I'm not 100% on selling, but I am shure I want another rig. I may just have to get a ballanced rear shaft, and use it for commuting, its that reliable.:D

$6000 takes it home,or wheeling whichever you choose.
I lowered the price a little. Make me some reasonable offers.
WTF! I THINK I JUST SHAT MY PANTS.. You selling the red wasp? No way... You've gotta build something else before you drop this one.

Well fall came and went, and I just couldn't justify a new build. I wheeled all winter then after we got our 1st warm spell I started cutting. This is what I wound up with, and I don't like it. It serves its purpose, but it just dosent seep pleasing some how.



I'm still kicking around ideas for a new rig. I havent made up my mind yet though, if I will start over or just keep cutting away at this rig.

KEEP IT :thumbs: it screams GITTINIT
Close..but to me he still lacks the fading flames down the hood and fenders for that name. AH HAH thats it that's what it's been missing all along!:D Still think it should have been called the red wasp.

All joking aside I like it..that rear-most down tubes are the thing to me that is throwing the lines off..you've got good lines everywhere else but that one is like sticking out like a sore thumb.

And where are the nice rocky pics at? New wheeling location? Can't seem to place them in my head.

Hotsprings. I belive that is "4fingers". You get that build done and you will be ready for those 4s and 5s, then those trails will be all so familiar.

I agree with ya about the rear downtubes, they are verry verticle, and just dont seem to blend with the rest of the rig verry well, but I wanted the ultimate in strength without going to the back of the frame/flatbed.

The flames are a good Idea as well, mabye I should tape some off and spray it with a fresh coat of red. I could have shiney red flames on a faded red truck, and it might not look to bad.

I agree but without the more verticle bar there isnt the triangulation I was wanting back there. Mabye I should have both. It needs some sort of x in the back too. I will prolly just run it though as I do plan to have passengers get out before I get too stupid.

Could yall move this to the section for buildups. I will edit out the price, as it is no longer for sale.

You want it under Tech or General Discussion? I can move it for you.
Prolly general discussion couse I don't have much tech to offer. Its not really a buildup either, its just me showing my junk as I change it. I dunno, where ever you think it belongs, will be fine with me.

Thanks Josh!
