FAST Fabrication 94 b4000 turn into SNORE class 7 race truck build thread

This is our first full truck build, my brother has a 2001 HnM prerunner we have done bumpers, bed cage, and glass install on it and will be doing a cab cage and link in the future. We do trailer work, upholstery, and all kinds of metal fab work and we are located in Bullhead City, AZ next to Laughlin we also make parts like jack skids for any jack (mine happens to be for a harbor freight aluminum jack), spare spinner kits, light bars, etc.
So it started out as a extended cab 1994 Mazda B4000, for years I had 33s and a front clip and 6" bedsides on it with no suspension because the front was in an accident. Two months before the full build I had installed an extended beam kit with coil buckets, an 8.8 rear-end (now in brothers truck) and made the front clip tilt.
Then we gutted the entire truck all for sale, I have so much for sale from electrical stuff, to panels, to gas tank, all the windows except the windshield, the rubber seals that go around everything, so much for sale.
Cut the back of the Cab off and here is/was the plans:

-2" d.o.m. main cab cage with 1 3/4 d.o.m. support tubes and throughout back half and engine cage
-Equal length front d44 boxed beam kit with crossover steering strapped at 20"
-GMR boxed race links, with GMR fully trussed 3.5" housing
-Scheiner Enterprises 2.5" full floater hubs, Wilwood 4 piston calipers and rotors
-35 spline 4340 Superior axles, strange light weight spool, 5:43 ring and pinion, billet nascar pinion support, 1350 yoke, Currie 9 plus race nodular
-All four corners have 2.0 by 4" bumps, 2.5" dual rate coilovers, and 2.5" triple bypasses, 2 quad limit straps with clevis
-Jaz 32 gallon jeepspeed fuel cell
-Built a Wishbone for 3-link
-Grade 8 hardware through out with Fk heims and spacers
-10" flat top bedsides 2005 and newer ranger front clip
- 2 suspension seats with 3" 5 point harness
-Built Custom steering column with quick disconnect
-Built removable spare tire setup
-4 led light box
-5 kmc enduro bead locks on 35" wheels 5x5.5
-battery box in rear with dual yellow tops
-and much more

I like to give a special thanks to our current sponsors, their product has been amazing and their help has been superb. We can get you any of their products as well.

FK Bearing (fkrodends.com): supplied us with all of our heims the JMX series, high mis-align spacers, uniballs and cups, bungs, and jam nuts

G Machine Racing (thegmr.com): Owner Jason Heard has been so helpful in setting up his 3 link boxed links as well as making us a second housing for the bigger hubs

Sway-A-Way (swayaway.com) supplied all our shocks 4- 2.0 by 4" bumps, 2-2.5 by 14" coilovers, 2-2.5 by 16" coilovers, 2-2.5 by 16" triple bypasses, and 2-2.5by 18" triple bypasses

Glassworks Unlimited (glassworksunlimited.com) supplied their new 2005 ultimate 85" wide ranger clip and their big boy 10" flat top bedsides

Vision X Off-road (visionoffroad.com) will be supplying 5 of their H.I.D.s and 3 of their big Halogens

Suspension Spring Specialists (bluecoilspring.com) supplied their Blue Coil springs powder coated black giving the truck a perfect stance at ride height

PRP Seats (prpseats.com) supplied two of their completion seats, 2 of their 3" 5 point harnesses, 4 coilover covers, and two custom window nets

Optima Batteries supplied the two yellow top batteries

Plus of course F.A.S.T. Industries with the divisions of FAST Fabrication, TEAM FAST Racing, and soon FAST Apparel and FAST Media & Web Development

How it looked before we gutted it to build a race truck

Got the Sway bar all mounted up and built a sweet dimple gusset plate, just need to fully weld it...





started on fuel cell relocation, built a gusset plate for back of frame will have a dimple in it and have front mount to fuel cell welded to it




also FAST Fabrication has got their Facebook page and business page up and working on myspace and twitter page then the website. We are doing a $250 basic bumper special just like the one on the 2001 A-Arm ranger. Also working on getting finished models of our jack skids and light bars all at unbeatable prices.
