I was going to wait till I got the frame painted and the body on before I started a build thread, but I have build threads on other forums so I might as well start one here since BAM is doing the fabrication on it.

I would like to give a big thanks to Wakulla Charlie for giving me a great of a deal on the truck, axles, and driveshats.
1990 Chevy


Transmission when I got it:

After being built:


No pics of the engine, but it is a stock 350 with a cam. ...would you really want to see pics of that anyway?

WC's old 2.5 tons and Lead Foot's old 5 tons:




Heims:


Ford 9inch coils



I would like to give a HUGE thanks to Bam Bam for the fab work:

The craddle is 1 3/4" .120 wall DOM. The link bars will be 2" drill rod.


Lead Foot got me a set of 18.4 26's. CJ at Longs Wheel and Rim drew up some centers for me.
I am leaning towards 2 or 4?



Only other progress so far is I got Fooli$h Money's old SCS case and I have gutted the cab and put a dash in it. This is probably the slowest mega truck build ever.

My house and my daily driver has been bleeding me dry so I am hoping that MAYBE it will be done by this summer.

I heard CJ likes moonshine. ...but maybe that is just a rumor.

I really wish I had saved that pic of him passed out on the tent.

Hmmm, that's another idea!! But see, I have this friend that has this kick ass plasma cutter where all I have to do is get a print out of the design I like and it will cut them, then they can be reinstalled.... he wouldn't even have to weld them back since they are bolt on centers!! Doesn't that sound really easy??

For some reason, I am thinking that these centers would look pretty sweet on the Dawg...

Me?
The 2.5's. Although the 20 ton planets sitting in front of Roger's do look tempting.

None.
This is pretty much it right now. I am betting the Jacksonville guys will have at least 4 more trucks built, and sold, by the time mine is done.

I am trying to set a record of the longest build in Florida. Laughing
