Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

You should make some type of fan you can hook up to the air line so you can have a breeze on those days that aren't windy when your camping! Think outside the box think ghetto swamp cooler

Holding up awesome!
We did 700 dirt miles on our Baja camping trip back in April. Then with litteraly zero prep, we loaded the cooler and pre-ran 300 miles of the Baja 500 course last month.

Both trips were 100% perfect. Never had to open a tool box (for my truck)

1000 flawless miles, knock on wood, It's hard to ask for more.

Here's a link to our April Baja Camping trip. Think I'll start a thread.

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

September 2011 update.

I love my truck...
Since the last post we've put over 2000, literally trouble free (knocking on wood) off-road miles in the last 6 months, 1600 of which were AWESOME Baja trips and thousands of hywy miles.

A couple things I've added in the last 6 months:

Needed a roof rack to hold our Kayaks for our April Baja trip.

Started out with a cheap aftermarket rack that sucked and decided to make a permanent one.
Thru-bolted and silicone everything.

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

I finally got around to putting bump stops on the front.
I was getting worried about burning up unit bearings because I was using the tire and wheel well as the stop

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

The factory hanger bent one trip to Baja, so I added some steel to it. It bent two more times after the fact so I designed some super turbo kick ass hangers.







The truck came with some cobbled up shackles that the previous owner had hacked up out of stock shackles, so I whipped up some new one's.
