View Full Version : Picked up a new crawler, Wanted to say Hi!

A couple weeks ago I picked up an 84 truck. The guy I bought it from built it up into a pretty nice rock crawler.

I bought it pretty much ready to run, but I have had to sort out a few things to get to it street legal and set up how I want it.
