Project- Here we go again

Well 3rd time around building this truck, been one hell of a learning experience, so i'll just do a brief explanation and get to the pics. Had this truck since 06, drove static for years, did BOB 2 years ago, did a custom canti set up on it last year, now this year its getting done right and not touched until i have room for a SFBD.

Its getting a full backhalf, 2x3 1/4 pressure welded and will hold about 8 gallons of air, triangulated 4 link, canti, blazer rear disc brakes, suicide doors, dump bed, thats about it basically, onto the pictures

here was the truck last year


cutting the old junk off


and totally seperated


one rail tacked up


backhalf done and tacked onto the truck until its totally done to be pulled back off, pressure tested and welded back on


figuring out where everythings going


lowers done, ready for upper arms and gotta mount the canti arms and build bag mounts, then time to start on getting half couplings welded on the frame and figuring out my air management



Its all fun and games till the cops come, then its a sport!

Re: Project- Here we go again

picked up a new project bed yesterday, mine got rearended last year and tweaked it up pretty bad, didnt have a bed floor yet so it folded, so now i got a clean, rust free bed with LED tails for 250 that just needs a little work inside


got all my brake stuff, now just gotta make some brackets for them, plumb them in and thats all done


cut off the poly end of my upper arms and welded them back on at 22.5 degrees


welds with my ThermalArc Fabricator 181


Btw no comments on how much of a mess my garage is lol, its a shitty block building built into a hill side that leaks water like a mutha! We bought a house and are literally moving next week, so I have to get this bitch rolling onto a trailer by the end of the week

Its all fun and games till the cops come, then its a sport!

Re: Project- Here we go again

Well its been way to long since i've posted on here, got a lot more done, including buying a house and moving into it, so i'll throw some more pics up of where the truck is out now

front shot of our new house, has a one car currently but were going to try to build a shop out back before winter


bringing her to her new home


joint between backhalf and frame is way overkill now


where i'm probably mounting the cantilever, was going to go up front but i'm running out of room back here quick


my fuel cell will be built to fit back here between everything, only will be about 8 inches deep so plenty of room to drag the shit out of it, and stay away from the boom juice

Its all fun and games till the cops come, then its a sport!

Re: Project- Here we go again

well got the canti arms mounted, lower bag mounts on, and in the process of building my arms to connect the canti to the axle. Also got incredibly lucky on the fuel cell, i have a 25x18 hole, Broke Dick racing makes a 24x18x10 aluminum fuel cell with a GM sender for 194 shipped to your door, so ordered that whore today, as well as a autoloc keyless unit off ricky, so once this all comes in and i get a few more half couplings welded on my frame to get my valves plumbed, weld on some compressor mounts, and build my rear disc brake brackets...think thats about it for the rear, then back to the suicide doors and still gotta do ball joints, maybe speedway uppers before it comes out too. I'll post more pics when theres more pics worth taking

Its all fun and games till the cops come, then its a sport!

Re: Project- Here we go again

little update

bag brackets all welded up and gusseted


where the arm will sit while layed out


where my new fuel cell is basically going, the rear valves will be directly behind the bag mount in the open space on a half coupling with a 3/8-close so it will be tucked right to the frame/air tank


my daughter wanted me to draw my truck for her while playing with sidewalk chalk lol


I will be going back out tonight to get the links to the axle done, tomorrow i'll be welding the rest of the half couplings on for my valves and hopefully starting plumbing and wiring so i can tear it all back apart to paint it

Its all fun and games till the cops come, then its a sport!
