    things are cut away, and things are preped to get this clip on.
    its just sitting there right now.
    also notice, this is a different truck. this is a parts truck im gonna put together with this cab for now, and then cab swap the other truck once im ready.
    to be continued..

    im ready to take the body off and do some frame work.
    front end is in place, square, at the correct wheel base, and ready to patch.

    With a ride height like that you wouldn't be able to drive around here very much. Most towns have big enough dips at intersections or pot holes deep enough that the core support would drag.

    I'm not Carl, but my first guess would be: boat anchor?:joker: I really don't have anything against gas engines. I just feel that a diesel is better in a bigger truck.
