new frame cut

i went with a shorter leaf spring and with 6 leafs each

this time i laid 30 pounds on it and didnt give

also added 3rd axle with rear steer

i need to remake rear fenders , outer tanker longer and make a 3rd box that goes behind the front box

so this went from a t1500 to t3000. im hoping no body is dissappointed as i had no option for the upgrade

i have an awesome surprize what im adding to the truck too

today i went throught the whole chassis to see if i can make it beefier



ive added another leaf to each spring making total of 7 each

this truck will probably hit arround 35 punds when finished

so im going to need some torque to pull her

i went with 2x 55 turn motors and 2x single speed transmissions

i believe this should do it for the rolling chassis

tomorrow i can get back on the plastics and remounting the evrything else

Image

Image
mounted the cab,front box,lower boxes,added red rims,enigine cover ,painted and installed the rear fenders

she grew alittle too lol shes at 36 inches bumper to bumper
