Crew cab. Use it or lose it.
Read more about this build here...
There was a brand new '89 crew cab cab section in a crate from GM a month or 2 ago on ebay. I think the guy wanted $2500 for it. New GM door shells were installed too, front and back. I wanted to get it, but I have enough projects.
I don't spend much time at all on ebay anymore. Use to be a good place to find deals on things. I think that is rare anymore. Some of thier policies are a little wacked too. This is getting a little off topic though.
Looking good. Post up some more pics of the progress. I dig a frame off crew cab project - I'd love to do one myself, but I'll have to live vicariously through you. So, post up more
i got your 16.5s and i know your secret i'll trade you even for some 16" chevy dually wheels. you pay shipping
Well, the front axle is finally installed on 6" super rides. Sitting on the front tires today. On to the rear suspension and fitting 4 - 36 x 12.5's in the rear.
Wife is getting a little tired of my borrowing her wheels so I'm gona have to push this along!
Looks aweseme so far man, paint it the same color as the bus
There's a 90 V3500 f/s near me, I'd love to have it
Looks GREAT! I love my crew cab dually 4x4 and I don't think I'll ever buy another vehicle. Keep the update pictures coming!!!!
If I had know where your place was when I was stuck up in that part of the state I would have spent less time chassin tail in that town and more time peaking in windows of shops.
Just a little side track though. Where in the heck do you go wheelin there? That place is entirley to flat to have any fun on.
There is a few good places to go. Got to have a tow rig and gas money to really have fun.
Looks a ton better then the last time I saw it Kert. Do you want me to push to get my truck up there for you to pull my turbo setup off, if you still want it. I only have 900 or so to throw at the motor swap, so i dont know would you want to just keep my truck up there for me for awhile.
I'm ready whenever your ready. So whenever is best for you.
its all really waiting on when i can start gettin the weekends off...we are still spreading fertilizer
Front end is completely finished now.
Tuesday a new power plant showed up at the shop thanks to Marv Springer. 500 cubic inches of stump pulling power!!!! I think it just has to go into the crewcab project.
Rear suspension is born.

Cadillac 500 stripped down and ready for the boiler
Then the cadillac Ferry dropped off some goodies
As of now the plans for the engine are obviously the tru roller timing chain, intake and headers. Cam and lifter set on the way as well as some Keith black 9.2 hypeur(whatever) pistons. Hopefullly it will pull like I want it too!
Need 16.5's for hummer tires?
Gonna do the Ford FE rocker trick on that Cad?
Please elaborate?? Only thing Iknow of with Ford stuff is mixing in the Fuel Inection intake.
??? I have a pile of the tires now. Always looking for good deals though.
