Remember That One Time?... Tell Us Your Best MJ Story

From stock to now, I've always smiled running through the gears in this truck.

Also stacking deck boards to get it on the trailer and realizing it might be a bit too low


CC is Awesome!... Why Do You Think So? 

everyone getting creative and doing their own thing with the same model

Thanks guys! Glad people enjoy the fab work, I was nervous when I first came here with a model that has purists, but I've gotten a lot of love

Congratulations, cool truck! I am somewhat of a purist but on the other hand I do believe in "to each his own". Such a unique design, one of a kind for sure! Bet that is fun on a road track!

 

Buck.

 There are purists, and then there are purists.  You made it yours and that's what counts.  Nice ride!

This is an awesome build. Very much reminds me of when I was younger when I used to go with my dad to custom car shows and would always be with the mini trucks when they were heavily popular to lower back in the day. My dad used to do interior and did interior for a few famous mini trucks back then. Keep up the good work, can't wait to see it finished!
