20×8.5-inch Hp Onyx wheels with 245/35ZR20 Nitto tires


Airbagged at AutoWerks using 2500-and 2600-pound Firestone airbags. Up front, Chassis Tech spindles were used, forth with Toxic shocks and DJM lower control arms. In one case the firewall was tubbed, the truck lays frame with up to a 20-inch wheel/tire combo. In the rear, a Chassis Engineering science ladder bar setup was used, forth with a diagonal Panhard-style link.


The truck’due south frame was made to allow a huge bicycle and tire to sit down within its confines past a notch congenital by Robert Smith and installed by Jimmy Boykin. In the bed, through a custom sheetmetal bed floor, the crossmember has been cut out of plate steel in the shape of tribal flames.


Equipped with an ’85 1.1L Mazda RX-7 rotary engine and a ’91 Mazda RX-7 manual. The engine was painted using Harlequin pigment for evidence appeal. The truck’s exhaust is composed of 2-i/2-inch tubing that’s downsized to 2-inch, and uses a polished stainless steel Magnaflow Muffler. Columbus Custom Frazzle built the truck’due south exhaust arrangement, only Robert Smith made the truck’s custom exhaust tips.

Trunk Modifications:

’00 Nissan Frontier front with shaved everything, including the rooflines in the truck’southward cab. The only thing we can call back of that wasn’t shaved is the truck’south bodyline and fifty-fifty that was modified to make the Frontier front end end work with the Hardbody doors and bed of the truck. The rear of the Nissan has been outfitted with LED taillights and plough signals for a stealthy look.


Painted at AutoWerks. Xl-v unlike hues of Firm of Kolors paint were used to paint the truck. In all, the truck’s wicked paint scheme took about 160 hours.
