    Nice ride. Cut a couple of windows in the sides, a little camo and you got a great hunting rig.

  5. Hello,

    Nice truck - I just about went for one like that. I'm over in Aberdeen, SD and use mine as a daily driver. If legislative session 2011 doesn't take the ATV status away and the State doesn't cut jobs - I still have plans to cross the State and tour the Black Hills in my mini-truck. I'm originally from Edgemont SD but jumped around the State based on getting more education and going where the work is.

    Nice to catch a fellow South Dakotan here :O)

    Cheers,

    Norm
     
  6. Oh, what outfit has that KEI van all detailed out there in RC? Sorry, I don't recall the street...just been to long. Just curious if you ever stopped and checked it out ... gotta be good advertising. :pop:

    Thanks for the prompt responses. I'm not much of a hunter. I'm don't know what I want to exactly do yet. I'm still pretty open to ideas. I'm thinking about taking the the refer box off and possibly selling it. And I am also glad to see a fellow south dakotan on here. And the mini your thinking about is mobile FX. Its pretty tricked out. Ill look on their website to see if they have pics of it. If not ill snap some next time I'm there.

    sweet ride. I tell you what. make some money. make an ice cream truck out of it. put a window in her, and play some music through a PA system... Hire a little person to hand out the goods from the side. Man that would be sweet! No... but seriously, really nice!

    I love it here in rapid. With the exception of the fact that its about -30°F with the windchill right now. And they are talking about -60°F windchill tomorrow night. I'm not a huge fan of winter. Its awesome in the summer. Plenty of cruising in the black hills.
     
  11. Perhaps you have a good start to a RV shell as well with that box. I'm thinking 'camping' :D

    I checked into one made here in the US for suzuki trucks - over 10 grand ... natta happin for me.

    Hey dumpling, is your mini a Subaru sambar as well? If so ill trade you my box for your bed rails+ a little bit of $$. Nothing too much, but enough to make it worth while for both of us. I'm thinking about making this think more of a street rider more than anything. Possibly bag it(if its even possible) Fab up my own style of bumpers. And maybe something on the sides to cover some stuffs up.
     
  13. No, mine is a Suzuki DA65T... To justify this to the wife, it had to have utility and replace the 1990 S15 GMC - thus the 3 drop side bed. ;)

    I like the box, is it removable?

    looks like they just take the sides off and put the box on the bed.

    Yeah. It'll come off. Its like 10-12 bolts that hold it on. And a couple wires for the refer unit in it. I'm thinking bout getting rid of it. I have no use for it
