This truck is by far the baddest luv 4x4 I've seen. Can't get over the fact that is in my garage and has such a history connected to "Bigfoot"


Start the list:
Sbc, tunnel ram, dual 4's
narrowed dana 44's
turbo 350 trans
divorced rockwell 221 transfer, driveshaft loops
4-link, airbags, tringulated panhard bar
dual front shocks
crossover steering
4 point cage
456 gears
custom rad, tilt front end
and the best looking front clip/cab I have ever seen. The bed that was originaly on it was just the sides and a false floor. the prior owner put a real luv bed back on it.

The history of this truck is even better!
built by one of the original (3) guys that started Midwest 4x4 (now know as Bigfoot now)
painted and striped by Dan Patterson, Dan painted all the Bigfoot trucks, semi's and trailors for over 20 years.
built as a dirt/sand race truck named " Dirt Squirt" now driven on the street....
The truck does not have the original meth motor in it now but I do have the original 3 pcs wheels and paddles for the truck, 15x15 wheels and massive paddles. I going over to the prior owners house Sunday to get a copy of the 24"x24" picture he has when he purchased it in 1989

The list goes on and on and on.......


This truck only has 8,003 miles on it

Please look at the links added, I could not attach them for some reason.

*I THINK I EDITED IT AND ATTACHED THE PHOTOS *

i'll get pictures of the rear 4-link setup and bags. The rear setup is BEEFY. The rear shocks are adjustable, bag brackets and shock brackets are all adjustable. I'll see if I can get pictures tonight .

I've been working on the truck little by little. Today I bolted up the new 39.5 Iroks and wheels to see how the front springs need to be made. Sorry I'll try to get some pictures of the rear setup and the under side after the holidays.

Been along time since I've been on, recently started working on the luv again and currently in the process of a frame off restoration. I was able to obtain pictures of the truck on the bigfoot building and got alot more of the history of the truck together.

OMG. That truck is a twin to my previous 79. Body finally rusted off in 2006. 338K on the stock engine.
I literally used it to clear trails in the woods. We tried to figure out how many deer that truck hauled out for the club. Close to 100. Full size trucks just couldn't go where that thing would. It had all season tires on it when I bought it, and I never changed them. Best of the 5 I've owned.

If this was titled as a 75 I would have flown to it to see if I need it in my fleet, pretty sure I do.
