picked up a new project today, the wife wanted something with heat and a/c with enough room for the kids. after seeing some sweet rigs at the offroad expo a full size chevy prerunner was the vehicle of choice.
got a 1989 extended cab chevy has a complete back half with three link completed cycling 28" travel, front end needs finishing but will have around 26" of travel when finished. here are a few quick pics i got today will have some better tomorrow when i get it home.

I have always wanted to do square body chevy. I have had pictures of mark newhan trucks posted all over for years. But i dont have much from my grandfather and the truck its self isnt worth anything so why not make some new family memories with it.

Thats what my plan is. My wife will actually ride in it and it has enough room for the dogs too. And it will be street legal so i dont have to trailer it every where.
