I have already purchased a dana 60 dually front rear with 4.56's from an 4x4 1 ton ambulance. I am just waiting on a friend of mine to pull it. With the weather here, he doesn't seem to be in a hurry.
that's cool man!
Awe-SOME! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gifWhere does one find the parts for that? looks like a 2 part project (drive train - body). And would lighten the wallet a bunch!
The project started out as: I bought a 1985 Suburban with 70,028 miles on it.
It needed new tires and spring bushings. I decided to lift it. 4" and 33's. Well when I put the front springs in that I purchased at a swap meet. They ended up being 6" springs. I had to put 8" of lift in the back to level it. So I did a shackle flip and used a block that I had. I drove it for a little while like that (300 miles) tires were too small. So I bought a parts truck for 3/4 ton running gear. (see new picture in my album) It had brand new General Grabber MT's on slot wheels. I had my plan in order....just swap running gear! yeah right! I had a guy want to buy the generals for more than I paid for the whole parts truck.....so SEE YA LATER!!!! off they went. Now I was going to need to buy new tires and rims. My new plan was to put the corp 14 with discs in the rear and the 44 up front , buy new eagle wheels and BFG Mta's. Well I found a set of KMC dually wheels reasonable and just had to have them. So I bought the wheels, 6 Brand New Tires, 2 Brand New factory rims, A dually rear from a 1986 box van(needed all new brakes), acquired a pair of factory BUDD Wheel adapters for the front rear(until my dana 60 arrives), New 2" wheel spacers for between the rear tires so they don't rub while Burban is loaded, All new front brakes, Shocks, You name it , everything has been replaced!!!! Oh yeah the fenders were a B*#ch to find! But a buddy of mine pulled thru for me on that one, if not they wanted like 150 and some change to just ship the new ones I located. Anyways the truck has been a lot of fun so far, but the last phase was a very expensive one , but it just had to be done. My next step is to do the body work, install 89-91 grill assy, PAINT, and install the 1991 Silverado factory blue Bucket seat velour full interior I have acquired for it! The only problem is now there is snow on the ground and I don't have a garage here at my house. And I haven't had time to build my new pole barn. Anyways good things come to those who wait......RIGHT? Well thanks for looking.
that burb is sweet /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I like the dually conversion
did u try these guys for fenders? ArrowCraft Peeked @ their stuff a long time ago.. but hadn't seen it done on anything. Now why can't i find deals like that? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
