As of two days ago she was completely under her own weight. I just need to find 2 16.5 wheels to fit the rims and then it is going on the trailer.

queation for ya with this pic.



are you planning on caging the truck? the only support i see from the front end is the 2x4 boxed mild tube, i can just see it tweaking the front end up. tie that rear cage to the front engine cage i assume through a cab cage?

the other thing, as i read through it looked like the rear cage was made of hot rolled. the weld seam is a dead give away. maybe im wrong but just something i noticed.


awesome work man. love the designs

Hey, so to start off, yes the back is ERW, as well as the engine cage. But I am going to spend the money and buy D.O.M for the cage when I do the cab. I have been asked that a few times and I can see were you got mixed up. I plan on having 4 spots going threw the fire wall connecting the front of the cab cage to the engine cage, and 6 from the back of the cab cage to the rear cage.

As well My rockers are beat in and rotted, so I am going to cut them out and build my sliders as my new rockers. as well they are going to go forward of the doors about 6 inches and then I am going to have a tube going from the rockers to the top of the engine cage and then plate and dimple die it in for strength and looks.

I hope this cleared everything up.

Cheers
Chris

Hey guys sorry for not posting. But this build has been put in indefinite hold. I retired from the canadian forces last Febuary (2013) and shortly after that moved to Alberta. Once my girlfriend and I got out here we found out that we are expecting a baby.

So as of right now it is sitting in the Greater Toronto area, and it is for sale.

Get rekt. I just spent the last hour reading every comment in this thread, only to arrive at this depressing conclusion.
