I dig it! I was already lusting after the one Ian from XOR is doing on TV, but this is an interesting animal!

One question, though: if the end product is a crew cab, you're starting with a crew cab, right?

If not, the bodywork alone on this project would be a huge project!

Interesting that they would decide to make a 39 instead of a 42....

Work continues on #REBELZILLA - in house built 1 3/4" 4130 chromoly control arms with monster sized Johnny Joints. Once we know their length is dialed in we'll break them down and send them out to powdercoat for some Orange flavoring. We placed them next to a full length Teraflex JK upgraded control arm for scaling - check out that length!

This is exactly correct, the directory path changing left most of our old posts without photos. They should be good now, I just popped in there and updated the links.

The good news is that the RebelZilla project is very much alive. We are still working on designs for the interior and the rear box/bed so no finalized photos as of yet. Stay tuned guys, you won't be disappointed!

It will be something like this...
