Ill try to make the story kinda short and sweet on my 91 s10. I originally bought the truck to drive back and forth to work but that only lasted for 1 trip before the custom bug bit pretty hard. It went through several phases but it was bagged on 18s and was starting to look decent.
While at layed out at the park me and a buddy decided that my truck was kinda bland and needed something to stand out and a dually idea was thrown out at some point, I kinda liked the idea but knew I had to go at it in in kinda a big way.
So we started with the intentions of putting a small block in and a 1 ton rearend. so I dug up a sterling 10 1/4" out of a 87 f 350 and had Little shop of horrors narrow it down for me
Next Moser built me a set of custom axle shafts to fill it with and Bad habits customs built a parallel 4 link for it. But I had forgot about the front end and in the end no good choices could be made except having adaptors made.
Then as the build progressed a little at a time changes were made aafter talking with some folks at 8 Lug we decided the small block wouldnt cut it so I originally found a olds 350 diesel but soon after realized it would be a waste of time and effort to use it because of the inherit problems they have so I was on the search again when I found my Mercedes Benz OM 617 turbo diesel that we are working on now.
Since we were doing a motor swap anyhow I decided to tear it down and go ahead and boddy drop it also so right now its in the process of having a frame built for the sfbd. Ive been picking up parts since then but life did get in the way for a bit, my wife and I bought our house and built a new shop for me also we built her a bagged hearse but now the dually is getting worked on again slowly. Here is how it looked before we tore it back down for the body drop and a few parts Ive picked up, hopefully it wont be to long before I can start making more progress on it.
