I have built the other ways but never done a leaf truck befor so this looked like the prime candidate if i could find a ifs and solid axel with the same ratio i would have gone that way as my 1:1 is ifs solid 2004 dually
just wanted to try it

small
the box was wrong so i tried to chev it up





I think i got it way better and a little closer to the chevy look
so on to the rear frame and suspention oh yea i found a rear diff for this rig after much phoning


then i ran int a glitch how to mount the rear shock i figured that out as well


still have to finish up the rest of the frame but it is coming along
worked on the nose some more

that is all for now
