went to the junkyard today looking for random stuff, and stumbled across this jewel:
Somebody put some effort into building this thing:
Full custom-made safari top, with full cage all the way to the a-pillar
not your typical junkyard project welds
...complete with diamond-plate bed, and soft-top folded down with window cut into it
yep, plywood wall, and lots of spray foam. Cant imagine why this ended up here!
Cool old Ford
Burned up Scout. One of many scouts in the yard
Another stubbed off van!
This one was done really well, we had a hell of a time finding the seam. Whoever built this thing took their time with it.
complete with flatbed!
Yesterday's trip. Lots of booty fab stuff goin on this time!
Here's what looked like a pretty cool Ranger, until we got closer to inspect:
the rear flares were steel, im guessing trailer fenders, but the front flares are tires
Leaf SAS, but look closer. We'll start with the shackles that lay flat against the frame:
90s F350 tracbar hacked in all booty fab style
low pinion, drum brake, kingpin
complete with a rat-rod shifter!
Random Grand Cherokee. Apparently Beanified.
Cool SASed Stepside?
Coil D44, most of the pieces are strewn about the yard. Someone wanted the carrier.
Booty-fab radius arms w/ tractor joints. No wonder theyre both bent
Ignition system in the cab. Mustve been a mudder. Plywood door panels!
One of many jeeps there, one of 2 mail jeeps there.
F250 Hi-Boy. Still has the divorced NP205 in it.
Superduty in junkyard. Rare find. Pretty much stripped too.
I stole the front leafs & front shaft (1350 double cardan). Leafs are for my F250, the DC will be used for a new rear shaft for the bronco next year. In the background is a Taurus fan i snagged for a coworker.
I saw another lifted Ranger too, but it was a typical TTB lift kit, nothing fancy. If the weather is nice ill be out junkyard hoppin tomorrow too, so maybe ill find some more cool stuff!
We found a badass conversion van! Check this thing out:
It was two van cabs put together, complete with a dog house out back! Then the back of a p/u cab i guess all mostly- welded together, with an 8' bed out back. Dunno what the frame was, but only one end was dually. It was cool & weird.
At the junkyard; check out this awesome bucket van we found!
...and a p/u with a pretty cool rattle can paint job
