About this creation
I first saw this Lego kit in an old Shop at Home magazine and I wanted it ever since. Luckily, I received the truck as a gift and I constructed the kit as the directions wanted you to. After I was done building it I had the unfortunate idea to pull it on a string over a jump and the whole truck fell into pieces that cascaded all over the place. This caused me to rebuild the truck but I didn't rebuild it according to the instructions. I gave the truck a new look in the front by changing the bumper and the lights. Under the hood came major modifications to the entirety of the engine. I decided to make the engine resemble a sideways V6. I also moved what appeared to be shock towers to be directly over the suspension. The engine also got paired up with a turbo to complete those heavy towing jobs. The interior of the truck received a new pair of plush two-tone body color matching seats. I changed out the original instrument pod for one with more gauges. The roof was lowered two plates and it received new B-pillars. I also gave the truck a brake light arrangement above the rear window as seen on most trucks. The truck bed was the most changed thing on the whole kit. I swapped out the old wheel wells for smooth plates. The same procedure was carried out on the rest of the bed, giving it a sleek look. Above the bed came a new hard tonneau cover. The rear taillights got a set of slotted covers and a new light arrangement.
One day I thought that it would be cool to outfit the truck with a pair of front mounted skis, making it a half track. The end result utilized the suspension units and pivoted. I had planned to use these out in the snow but I haven't yet.
I also use this truck to pull my custom trailer, which hauls my 4896 Sportscar among other things. I did not have to make any modifications to the suspension but if I made the trailer any bigger I would have to.
