    New guy here

    well i just bought me a 1989 Mighty Max from a friend of mine, it runs and drives, i literally bought it yesterday, it runs and drives (does need work) the body is straight, virtually no dents and its currently in primer, it needs a bumper and grill to have the body complete and i cant wait to roll it into my shop and start working on it and making it into something nice

    Hi and welcome to mightyram. It is refreshing to have a new member whose first post doesn't contain "I just got a mighty max and it's not running...etc" but even if it wasn't running, that's what this site is for. You got big plans to customise it or are you ready to hit it with a few coats of paint and go? Check the build threads for inspiration, there has been some pretty sweet work put into some of the projects here and there are no limits other than what you can put into it. Post pics and get a build thread going once you gain some traction.

    thanks, no this thing runs, it needs work of course, clutch needs to be replaces and im gona tear the motor down and go through it, but it will start up and run till you tell it to stop, its not my big project at the moment but it will eventually be built into a full show truck, im currently finishing up one build and about a 1/4 of the way in another, im very big in building custom trucks and ive always wanted to build a mini truck and this one will be it, and ill post pix soon

    A grille and a straight front bar, it'll be road ready. Even the tires look like they've got plenty of meat on them. Wonder what plans the PO had lined up...

    I partner with a shop, there are 3 of us that run it, and the PO is a friend of one of my partners, he was just going to paint it and drive it as is, he was pretty much just using it to get to work and back and save some MPG, and brought it to the shop for a tune up because its running a little rough, i saw it, made him a cheap offer and he took it

    brought the ole max up to the front of the shop and messed with it for a little bit, only damage is the rear pass side quarter on the bed but thats an easy fix, drove a few laps around the block at the shop and then pulled it up and started doing a tune up on her and after a plug swap she started running pretty good and then ran out of gas, lol, so thats where i stopped...

    and the stuff running down the tailgate is penetrating oil to make the tailgate open and shut better

    Indeed, thanks for posting the photos. We're always asking for photos, but I wonder if we thank people enough when they DO post.

    You might do well to access the tailgate hardware by removing the panel in the tailgate...if the screws aren't too rusty.

    absolutely, this was just a quick once over on the truck and a kind of getting to know my new project, i had taken a break from my other project to toy with this one for a bit, good sign is that the plugs when removed were all very clean, they were old and very used but showed me that the cylinders were all burning evenly and there was nothing other than the usual build up of carbon on the plugs, soon ill be able to crack into it more and then ill have plenty of pictures...

    i did order one of my favorite mods for mini trucks and that is the 100% clear tail lights, ever since i was a kid i loved that look so i had to get me some for this thing
