The backbone of the truck is a ’83 Toyota pickup chassis that has been modified. This included lengthening the tail-end of the chassis, which allowed the rear axle to be relocated further rearward and longer springs to be used. The body of the truck sits on modified and/or relocated mounts. The exocage/rollcage is tied into the frame and it was designed with several custom features including hiding the tubing inside the front fenders as it travels to the front of the truck. The wheelwells have been radiused to allow the large 38.5x14.5-16.5 LT Interco Super Swamper TSL/SX tires to flex without contacting the body. The tires are mounted to a set of recentered HMMWV six-lug double beadlock wheels that have been fitted with rock rings. Other exterior features include a Warn 8,000-pound winch (on a custom winch mount assembly), custom rock rails that are tied into the exocage/rollcage, and the factory paint.
