Mini Truck, Big Motor

Discussion in 'Trucks and Motorcycles' started by sbctimh, Aug 31, 2004.

  1. Mini trucks are light
    they have big engine bays
    they can be tubbed out easier than anything
    but which would you start with?

    I own 5 S-10s, so it's an easy pick for me
  2. Why do you own 5 s-10's?
  3. I bought my first for $500
    a girl crashed it, I trail beat it relentlessly after that, removed bed/panels
    thrashed it another year
    got 1 for $100
    got 1 for free, 4wd, trail beat it(video later), mud ran it
    the $100 1 died
    free parts truck
    got another $100 one, still drive it going on 3 years now

    and that's how I ended up with 5 S-10s

    I have an off-road park behind my house, stream, ravine, hills, feild, trails
    sometimes we beat cars into the ground too
    W-bodies are great for jumping

  4. '80'S Toyota pickup, with a Chevy 350.
  5. Either the S-10 (I have a Sonoma so it's close enough) or the Dakota.
  6. Dakota all the way..
  7. if I didn't already have S-10s the 1st gen Dakota would be my choice too
    a 440 coversion is available
  8. There are some rockin class-7 Rangers with 5.0L and even one with a 500hp 5.0L V6.
  9. 5.0 V-6?
  10. It's hella sick.
  11. same here.
  12. Any one is fine.
  13. Id love to put a SRT-10 Viper engine in my 98 Dakota R/T, beefed up of course. Shit ill take the front viper wheels and tires all around too..and brakes and full drivetrain.....ok Im dreaming now<A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC=""></A>
  14. you'd be better off selling your R/T
    buying a 4 banger Dakota
    and swapping in the goods
    you'll pocket some cash going down from R/T
    and pocket cash every month on insurance
    but I'm cheap like that
  15. 1998 dakota 4x4 with a 5.2L
  16. 800 bucks for 5 trucks, not too bad, lol
  17. could almost scrap em for steal and get my money back, lol
