    Tomorrow. Ha. I have loaded pics but can't find the cable for my borrowed camera!

    I'll get the cable and post pics post haste.

    And the build will definitely be documented. I missed the boat on that one last time around. I'm bad about that. I recently bobtailed my Nissan offroad truck as well as fabricating a whole new front end for it and didn't snap a single before or during pic!

    We are in the process of the same kind of conversion on a 1500 chevy v6 and then we will do it to a chevy v-8 and we also are dovetailing an older box van we got pics and will do daily pics of progress . i wantd to see a truck setup like this with a big Z on it to make sure we have the length right.

    when you pull your z on the truck where does the wheels set in relation to the floor , or dove tail this would help alot .

    No need for me to go to tellico. Suck Creek Mountain has a lot of spots. Prentice Cooper is good for easy riding and Big Fork offers some pretty crazy stuff. Soddy Mountain is also nice... Window Rock, Pardise, etc. I don't have to go far.

    I'll get some measurements today. I will say that the gate is 9 feet. And the back tire of the ztr sits about 6 inches the start of the dovetail drop. I have a million pics. My card reader on my printer won't read the card... I have to go to my friends house to down load them. I'll try my best to do it today.
