Pretty cool..I'll bet a lot of yuppies driving trucks with 3 foot beds have AHA! moments when they see little trucks doing work like that!

 

Only thing is...I wouldn't want to be behind you on a mountain pass with those suckers loaded down like that! :D

HEY! I used to be one of those people! You'd be surprised how much weight my 07 Sport Trac could hold and how much I could cram in it.

Nice wheels! They totally transformed that truck. It looked good before, it looks great now  B)

 

Some people don't like the cargo hooks on the Datsun trucks, but this thread proves they can be worth keeping on there.

Sometime in 2011 we picked up the motor and tranny from Micro's place outside of Portland, and the lil 521 toted it home to Seattle.

Yeah, I can't do it if it's not the red one..... and even then, is it even pliable enough to roll up to ship?  :hmm:   The one we have is so fucking stiff and brittle.  

 

We do have some carpet the PO did, and some 720 mats that I cut to fit, but a clean, matching vinyl would be nice.
