    Latest update. I got my front suspension in from Scott's Hot Rod Shop. They did a great job custom building it to fit the Dodge Chassis and my custom spindles.

    Sorry for the lack of updates, The truck is coming along.. The chassis is done, just finishing up the sheetmetal work on the cab. Hope to have it done by next summer.

    Just joining in on the thread. This build is awesome. I wish I had the knowledge and wallet to design stuff like your doing. Maybe one day!

    Have a look at your thermostat before you fill it up with coolant. They don't like to sit around dry and over time can get rather sticky opening and closing.
