Default project hammered squarebody update

I made a build thread on here a while back, doesn't seem to exist anymore though. So i figured since theirs a legit mini truck section on here why not. I have a 92 long bed, 2wd of course, 2.3, 5sp. I'm the second owner, first one being an old man of course that died and i somehow got the truck for free. Long story short i always wanted a mini truck, but this is now a shit show lol. The red bandana interior is still going strong. Suspension wise in the front its: DJM dream beams, Belltech 2" drop coils with 2" more cut, nitro 2 drop shocks, 4* eccentrics to try to cut down on my originally -11* camber, plastic inner wheel wells removed, radius arm relocators. Raised trans crossmember, all the spots the driveshaft were rubbing have been grounded down or removed. Frame notched, stock gas tank is gone. In the rear is a flip kit, 3" blocks, the notch, spare tire holder removed,factory fiberglass monoleafs. Soon as the install kit comes in an explorer LSD 8.8 is going in. Besides will be pulled 3 inches, and i have factory ranger front fenders with explorer bottoms grafted on for the extra width. Its riding on BBS RZ wheels 5x7 and 155/60/15 smart car tires stretched on for another 2-3 inch drop. Heres a few pics, in order of oldest to newest. Its my daily btw.







Excuse the filthy bed
