Just wanna say hey. I've owned my Trekker for about 6yrs now, when I purchased it I knew something was rare about it. It took me about a wk or two to find out what it was. I drove it for about 2yrs and then parked it for about 2yrs. Then I decided to put it on the rd again just to find out the front end bounced around extremely bad above 40mph, I spent a while rebuilding things on the front end and no luck. I ended up giving up and within the last two wks I decided again to give it another try, so now I'm gonna rebuild the entire front axle. While waiting on the parts I decideded to take an old bumper and cut/weld and build me a custom bumper/winch setup. When I get my taxes back I'm go,nna order a 7" maybie 5" lift and some 35's or 38's. I'm still unsure, here's a few pics. I'm going back with the original tan as soon as I get time to paint it.
I still have a lot of work left to do to the bumper ill post pics of the progress, thanks for the trekkor forum.

Thats gonna be a hell of a bumper, keep the pics coming. what springs are you going to run to support that weight and larger tires?
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. So dont tell me I spelled it wrong! You k
Thinking about super lift, but still undecided. I'm definitely tonal run better gears also, ill decide on gears once I order my lift and tires. Ill be headed to the garage here in a lil bit to do some more work to the bumper ill post pics later,
geezz .. where were ya when I was looking for a stock bumper ? I looked for a year before i found a good one !!
welcome to our little corner of the world
Lol sorry for not joining sooner I've been up and down about selling it but kept talking myself out of it cause it was so rare. Now I've made my mind up and have decided to do what I've set out to do all along. Thanks for the welcoming, if anyone wants to see progress I've started a build with pics in project section. I plan on having it lifted and "hopefully" painted by the end of feb. I like having a forum just for trekkors but wished there was just a few more of us on here for ideas.
Thanks for the compliment, I'm in lenoir. Between boone and hickory. I have more pics under the project section and plan on putting more up soon, but I have a 460 ford to swap engines job that takes priority. As soon as I get that done I plan on finishing the bumper.
