So as some of you know I picked up my 2014 MT Iceburg FJC "Betty"about a week ago. I have decided to call her Betty White for a few reasons apart from the obvious. One being no matter how dirty and old she gets, she will always make me smile!
I wanted this build to emphasis on a few key things for me.
1. Solid Daily Driver
-Simply put I plan on having this as my main mode of transportation aside from my motorcycles.
2.I want something to be ready for whatever the world throws at it
-I have seen 1st hand what these things are capable of which is a big part of me getting it. This will be the main focus of this build.
3.I want my son to experience the passion I share for trucks and where they can bring you.
-Growing up I have always chosen to get off the beaten path and figure it out as I go, this truck will make that much easier.
4.Gotta keep it classy, no point in calling her Betty if I am going to turn her into some beat heap using backyard butchers doing all the work. Doing everything myself or using professional shops.
To make things laid out here is a overall list of what I am planning on doing. This list will be edited as often as possible and pictures posted as often as well. (yes Ill try for before and after).
PLEASE, Let me know if you find a deal on one of the items below. $16k is a bit to spend, trying to dampen the blow to my wallet and head.
