Lil Big Rig turns pickups into mini semis

You'll have to excuse us while we go a little fan boy for a moment. This is perhaps one of the most hands-down awesome aftermarket conversions we've ever laid our eyes on. A few brilliant souls have come up with the perfect solution for the those old trucks languishing around the farm: build a scale replica of a big rig out of them. For the low, low price of just $12,950, you get the complete body ready to bolt onto your 1980s-1990s Ford F-250 two-wheel drive, 1973-1987 Chevrolet Pickup or 1994-2003 Dodge Ram into a baby big rig. At around five feet tall at the cab, the machines do an excellent job of looking just like the "real" thing.
Lil Big Rig will be happy to supply you with all of the accessories you need to flesh out the project in every way, from fuel tanks and fenders to appropriate lighting and the like. Since the trucks can be built with full sleeper cabs, this could very well be the perfect toy or track-day hauler. That is, so long as there's the right powerplant under the hood.
