Default Have some questions for next build

Ok guys, Ive built three rigs befor, the deal is, I've never done a dually although ive always wanted to. Ive done a ton of homework and I'm more lost than ever but the good news is I know what I want and how I want it.

I know I will be using a clod cab and a fabbing up a ranch hand style bed with various accessory's, I do not want a gru, I plan to run a stock 27t or slower motor so I can have a little wheels speed, and I do not want 4wd so I am thinking of using a Scania rolling chassis as a base. I want them axles, tires and wheels anyways. I have very little if any fab skills, I have no feeling in my hands. Every time ive asked in that past on other forums ive been told to research and go to rc4wd.

I know what I want and the look I want, but I don't have room in the budget for errors. So I have a few question right now. I want a scale looking street driven 80's chevy 3500 with the alcoa wheels. Simple right.

1: What is the width of a clodbuhster cab?
2: will using the Scania rc rig be a good chassis? If not what would you suggest?

I guess thats all for now.

After searching for a tape measure for 10 minutes (got to love the wife and kids) the clod body is pretty close to 6.925" wide. As for the semi chassis, the semi rear axle may be a little narrow. See if you can find someone with a stock semi to measure the rear axle with stock tires.

I used a semi rear axle and RC4WD aluminum wheels and the OD width is perfect, I also installed four link in the rear and leaf upfront.

I am working on a F350 flatbed with a semi frame and suspension as well and the axle widths fit nice.

Good luck and build on, lots of great info on this site.
