Here we go again.
The plan is to do a modern frame and drive train with 4 wheel drive.
Most likely MOPAR... Cause I like Mopar.

That is one cool crew cab. Probably 50K cheaper than the new one pictured. I like the jaunty cut out in the rear door to clear the fender. Great find, pops

Thanks Bob.
The guy that built this originally put a whole lot of thought into it.

Life has been rough lately. I haven't been in the posting frame of mind but I have been getting some done on this.
People sick, people died, identity theft,
Insurance company, lawyers and on and on.
Hopefully I can get out of this funk and back in the groove.

A few pics. Got the tubes on the condenser and the front end on.

The over flow tank was in the way of the grill brace so I went around it. They both need to be there so.........

Then the bottom radiator hose had the same issue with the serpentine belt. Same solution. Just go around it.

Top radiator hose with an additional temp sending unit. I needed one for temp gauge, one for the fuel injection ecu, and one for the electric fan. What a PITA!

Sorry to hear about the hard times, Pops. Hopefully things are looking up for you!

Your work and the truck are looking great!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Yeah, sorry to hear about life not being so nice. Sometimes I find it relaxing to go out in the shop and beat your head against something metal. Truck is looking good by the way
