    This truck was built about 3 years ago and I have just recently started putting some wrenches to it.

    I welded casters to the frame so we could wheel it out, it didn't work they were too damn weak and one flopped over.
    [​IMG]
    it would have worked if I had actually got the right casters instead of using what i had in the shop.

    They rub like a chinese massage parlor in the turns but after the 1" body lift and some cranking of the coil overs I should be good to go.

    The front sticks out 1.25 more than the rear

    Lost track many, many mods ago.
    WOW! That has come a long way. Impressive to say the least! Looks great. I'm sure you're glad to have it back and running again with a straight frame.
