Looks good. Why is your cylinder #2 spark plug wire in the #8's position on that Mallory though?

Clay, saw some aftermarket (I'm assuming from the price) svx front grilles on ebay that look to be identical the genuine ones. It might be worth the investment for this truck, which looks great by the way!

Ben, at the time I bought the knock off grille, LRX, the SVX set up was going for crazy pounds. I do not intend to hold on to this so don't be surprised if a truck looking just like this one should pop up on eBay very soon.

Kids college funds need seed money and this thing was supposed to be done 3 years ago.

Thank you. I think folks either love it or hate it but it seems to go with the front grill set up

The truck is going up for sale. I will post it in the for sale section asking $49K for a ground up rebuild to many new parts to list but will talk to those interested. The funds are seed funds for the children's college fund so I am going to wait for the right offer. Have all receipts of the build during the 4 year on and off project. It has a AZ special vehicle construction title.
