Default 5 Years Later - It's Not a "new" Project, And Not a New Member Anymore!!!

Good Morning All,

I would like to introduce myself my name is Marty. I have been working on this project for the last couple years. This truck was supposed to be a daily driver as my other Syclone is one of the Ten trucks that Marlboro Cigarettes gave away in a contest in 1991.

I purchased a Sonoma GT so I could build it to drive. However with all projects they sometime start with good intentions and then end up on a completely different path.

Currently the truck is at the chassis shop having the complete back half redone so we can fit the new tires. 295 45 20. The chassis is going to be set at 6 1/4 in the rear and 5 3/4 in the front at it's lowest point. Front Suspension is by Air Ride and the rear suspension was hand fabricated by Dave at Competition Fabrication ( www.compfab.com ) . The rendering was done by Bob Thrash at Rad Rides by Troy. All of the other idea's have come from me. I have searched the Internet over the last four or five years studying everyone else builds and idea's. I have learned so much from Forums like this and the bad part is it has cost me so much money because I want to emulate most of the idea's that i've seen.


The build of this truck is broken down into 24 stages and I hope to have it completed for the 2010 Indy Good Guys.

Currently the truck mods include:
18 x 8 & 20 x 10 Billet Specialties Wheels
BF Goodrich KDW-2 Tires
Currie Aluminum 9"
Wilwood Disk Brakes
Vintage Air
Billet Specialties Serpentine System (wow is this a nice piece)
4.3l All Aluminum Twin Turbo V6
4L80E Transmission
Big Stuff 3 w/Trans Controller
8 Point Roll Cage
Recovered Factory Interior in Viper Leather and Suede

There are so many other mods that I can't even list them all.

here are a few pics.

Thank you

We are shooting for 600hp @ 12lbs of boost. My goal is to make a dependable driver which will go the distance on the Power Tour. I want to have fun and not worry about breaking things.

Actaully there are two suspension that have been on this truck.

The first was set up for 315's however they looked way to small in the wheel opening.

The new suspension includes a new back half chassis which is still in the works. I have a couple pics

New Rear Suspension as of today
