Well thisis the first time I have posted here I hybrid because I had something to post!! It started life as a 1991 RRC great divide then slowly I got more and more tired of the body! I have been out ofwork for the last couple weeks and the bordom had finaly set in soI had to do something!!! Friday night I pulled the RRC into the barn and started ripping it down!! Hear it is tuesday night and allI have left todo is wire it up and drive it!! Sooooooo excited to drive this thing!

Cool, man you work fast!!! I plan on doing a 100 incher for my next project myself...any side photos? heres the one I was looking at for my ideas. Im not running tires that huge though...got a deal on a set of 37/13 boggers (really more like 35s). I am thinking I may not have to cut that much and i like the idea of not cutting the seat boxes out of the tub. Thanks Gordo

fix your comp cuts. they look like **** all wavy. i'd go 37s on that thing. looks like you have room. maybe 1" inch, but lower is always better.

seriously...use a straight edge next time you cut....

i was just thinking of doing this to my 93, i was thinking of leaving the rear doors but moving the back in for a small truck bed, sorta like a chevy avalanche, thanks for the ability to see what it will look like! you should post a build of exactly what you had to do

Michaels LOL those wavy cuts are only the cuts to to get the meat off it lol. I hadnt folded it in yet for the fender lip. Its all straight now and has a fender lip like factory and has 3in flares on it now. It only has a 2in lift via suspension so all the weight is low and it should be very balanced. Since I moved the drive train back 10inchs. Lol Little side fact you can swap drive shafts front to rear!! Or use a series shaft in the back and the old back one in the front. The only thing i need to do is make new exhaust front the y to the headers. It hangs down below the frame now. Easy fix just not right now lol.

I like it, and wow you do work dam fast. Always interesting to see folks doing something a little more interesting than fitting a RTM spring lift and heavy bumpers. Well done.
