More pics and details of home fabrications on the Duramax

Riverchucky's Duramax replaced a well worn-out '86 Toyota Landcruiser wagon. After hauling tons of construction materials, whitewater river gear, dogs and people, it was time to upgrade to something that could haul the load. At best, the Landcruiser would only get 11 -12 mpg, and dang-it, if I was only going to get that kind of fuel mileage, I wanted some friggin' power!
The Duramax not only has lots of power, it's much better with fuel economy and it's a helluva lota fun to drive!
More often than not, the access roads to river locations are rough dirt roads with deep ruts, in and out of steep river canyons. Being able to haul a full load of gear and people comfortably, was first and foremost.
Any stock vehicle has it's short comings, including a new Duramax. Thus the need for modifications and add-ons to suit our needs. Some of the mods were fabricated myself. "Have mig welder, chop saw & grinder, will fabricate."
All mods on this vehicle were intended with functionality in mind, not looks. The bonus, as it turned out, it looks cool as well, 'course, that's my opinion.
Lastest thrill. . .smokin' ricers!

As for the pics, it still looks new. . .for now.
