    I'm almost willing to bet there is no front driveshaft. :whistle:

    At least he had the courtsey to paint it day glo green so that people can see it in time to get out of the way.

    It probably holds up just fine with 10 miles a year put on it cruising truck shows.

    give the guy some credit, at least he has cross-over steering and did a solid axle swap. and he knows enough to put a 14b in the rear

    Man. That thing would look soooooo good if it was another color. I can give credit where it's due, but come on. Why go that length in doing a project like that and not do it right? Well I take that back. It's probably right for what he built it for if it's just to show. I say kudos to him for craftsmanship! :waytogo:

    its a good starting point. throw in a 60 and some lockers and no one here would say anything. other then that I would add mufflers and wheel it.

    Personally I could snap a front axleshaft in my gravel driveway in a matter of minutes, but I have 10 bolt axle snapping down to a science now.:rolleyes:

    If you look close enough in the pic it doesn't have a front shaft so this whole thread is moot.

    how long will it last? open door, climb in truck, insert key, start truck, shift into gear, apply throttle, BOOOM:D

    I will give him some credit for the SFA and x-over steering though, it could be badass.

    I think its cool, i'm sure he's not done with it. More of a show truck but could be fully functional with a few upgrades.

    Like I said....I bet the axle is just a "place holder".
