    Finally picked up my truck from the fabrication shop J&S Fabrication in Lubbock, TX. They did outstanding work and now it is my job to get it running. :)

    WOW! That's awesome. For the front it would be cool to pay homage to the 2JZ buy incorporating a Supra (or IS300) front end.

    Look carefully at that hood ornament. It is straight up Toyota.

    It looks the goods, cant wait to hear about your first drive. Are you putting the radiator up front or in the tub? it would look sick if the nose cone was moved back to cover part of the engine.

    No, the radiator will go under the nose cone. That piece is in the place where I want it. The tricky part is building it and allowing for future turbo addition and mounting the intercooler in front as well as the piping for it.

    Holy crap, that's awesome. My truck wants to be your truck when it grows up.
