mini truck frame

I've seen a few, I depends if you want the 2 wd A arm front suspension ...also how will the body fit on the frame. and how low do you want it. some looked OK other's looked like someone didn't have a tape measure before they started.

I doubt that there is anything automotive that hasn't been thought of at one time or another. Some will tell you that the vehicle will be ugly as 400 hells, others will like it. All that really matters is.....do you like it? It's your money and your labor. Make yourself happy.

I know a dude that shortened a 4x4 frame and put it under a Willy's Jeep. Talk about freaking me out when I am staring at Nissan IFS under an old Jeep. He has driven the thing around for years and it seems to hold up fine. Check out http://www.roninwheelers.com/ for all things Nissan.
