Very cool project. Too bad the over all appearance of the truck didn't stay more true to a stock loadside or rampside. Big time sleeper.

My opinion would be for the engine to be a little further back and for narrower front tires meaning less wild wheel well flares. Then wood stakes on the sides, but might not work, dunno.

If you check the only seating position... how's the driver get in or out.... thru a window?

Although they may have not cut the doors yet..

Matt,
In the later pictures you can see that the fender-flare is part of the shortened (height wise) door.

I like the idea but to much pipe exposed. As the pictures started it was pretty interesting but the farther it got it morphed into a almost unrecognizable vehicle. Maybe a Corvan might have been a better choice.But then it would have just been a van , just another van.

I looked through the whole thing and found it interesting, although the track is a bit much for me too.

When I got to the end I see the Hot Rod Factory is 10 miles from me. I never heard of them but then that's not really in my circle. I used to volunteer with SCCA for the autocross at Car Craft (Street Machine Nationals), I suppose that's where I might see something like it.
