Well its time for a small update
The F250 front end grafting is finish all that is left to do is finish weld all bracket
The front suspension seem to be a bit soft, I might try heavier coil spring for the front but I wonít change them until I install good set of shock absorbers
The D60 E250 rear end is in it fit great, it seem that with 10Ē wide rims it will fill
the rear fenders, that was one reason to swap to a van rear end




I started the engine compartment cover. I decided to weld them in to the body as it had
Stiffness to the frame, I know I loose I bit of access to the engine but it isnít worst then the new F series truck with there engine half in the fire wall





the heavy fabrication is finish every thing fit good, in the next weeks i will start to break down all the parts and finish priming and painting

I think I saw the kit you got for sale in the back of 4wheeler or OffRoad or something a while ago. Looks pretty sweet, keep up all the work on it and dont forget to finish it some day.

well its not a kit i made it all from scratch i drew the plan and started fabricated
what you saw was probably the urband gorrila advertising they built completed body kit
http://www.urbgorilla.com/
one guy also sell plan to fabricate from scratch like I did, but is plan are not completed
and you must purchase all parts like hood, door, roof and tail gate before starting
I decided to try to make as much parts I can, I did purchase the hood since it would have been to much work for me (a man got to know is limit) every thing else is hand fabricated including the interior panels

I would have just bought the kit and saved a lot of work. Or if you were gonna make it yourself do something totally unique so people wont think its just a Hummer. Thats just me though, do as you like

Why pay somebody to do what I can do myself for a fraction of the price?
I have $1500 in it now and that include 2 donor truck and the hummer hood
I figure with motor, transmission rebuilt, wheel and tire my total cost will be about $15000
There nothing complicated in this built, all panel are flat
As far a building something else, well I wanted a hummer for a long time but
Just cant affords one so, best thing for me was to build one

I can't believe I missed this build. Out F!#$ing standing! Has anybody sent this to the magazines? How about curry, ect? Man it would be cool to get H150 some sponsers. All I can say is awsome. Absolutely awsome. All I'll add is that it will be a sin not to drive that in the dirt. I don't mean get stupid "hey ya'll watch this kind of wheeling" but hitching the camper behind and taking it out for the weekend kind of thing. Or even some trail rides. I don't know the extent of your wheeling past but I believe the first time you take it off highway, even if it's just a nice dirt trail you will be hooked. I'm verry impressed with what you did. Money or no money that's a top rate job. I'm spreadin the word.

I was just saying if I did it I would have bought the kit. You do as you wish. If you want to build everything yourself then thats great. At least when you get done you can say you actually made the whole thing from scratch and have all the pics to prove it.

Just farting around with ya man. Honestly, I'd love to build one myself too but if I was gonna do it, I'd take the same route as Mike and buy the kit. Don't think I have the patience to do that.

His metalwork is incredible. I'm concerned about screwing up my fenders when time comes to cut them.
