This kinda fell in my lap and was too good of a deal to let slide by. I got the trans, transfer case, adapter, starter, and both driveshafts for $600

I'm helping the boy build a Cummins powered Bronco so he made me a deal. When we agreed on price I was under the assumption it was an RE trans. I was happy to see it was a RH and even happier to see that DHD instead of DLD on the t-case.

So spent another chunk of change tonight on parts for this thing. I now have a entire body for the crew cab.

So I've got 95% of the stuff I need to build this thing. Right now I have to come up with a driversids axle for my D60 a saddle bracket for it and master bearing kit for the 10.25. I may actuaccly go work on it some more tomorrow. I had hauled dome scrap and sold the big block out of the dually. I have $185 in my bed, rear end and some other body parts. I'd like to have it together to drive out to Iowa this year.

I think the bullnose is the better looking front end.

Andy, that topper. Does it make that front part a little storage area or does it not fit inside of the bed?

You mean plates? Big fingers and cell phones don't mix! :lol:

I'd like to know how Andy is going to climb his fat ass into that thing to sleep! :shock:
