I had to cut the grass around it couple weekends ago. Once again the Rescue/RV got put on hold. I've been working on my Scout right now. Just pulled the whole Tub off frame and doing a full build on it.

I have question for you. I have the chance to buy a crew cab loadstar not sure on year it looks like the yellow one you have posted. My question is I'm wanting to use the cab and put it on a chevy frame and put a cummins in it how well do you think this would work and would an international pickup front clip work on this cab?

Is that 3 questions?

CC Loadstar on Chevy frame? (get out a tape measure or move axles and make it happen)
Cummins swap? (plenty of resources out there; 6bt will be slightly long in the pickup clip)
International pickup front clip on Loadstar cab? (get out a tape measure or do some sheet metal work).

Anything is possible!

I'm with MT4Runner on this one. Will it work? YES. Will it be a a lot or work? YES. Either way I'd get your hands on that Crew Cab Loadstar. I don't see why you don't just ditch the Chevy idea all together and just throw the Cummins into the Loadstar Frame/Body.

If you feel you don't want to do any of this.... I want your lead to the CrewCab!

Any updates on the ol' Red Sled Meat wagon?

Obviously it would solve my Rim issues with a set of HMETT's and I can practically get any type of tire being a 20" rim.

I guess I should start looking for some 4000's. Gonna have to make a call to Hundy....

So, funny you say Axletechs. I have been looking into these.... a good friend of mine is building an IH Pick up that he just put some 2.5 Rocks under. Has 53" military's with the 20" 2 piece MRAP aluminum rims. He is in the process now of purchasing a set of Axletechs because he has found that getting breaks set on those are cheaper than on his Rocks.

I am leaning towards this direction myself and looking to get some Axletechs with rims and seeing what size tires (so far 44" would be max tire size before cutting anything, currently I am running 38"s) I can find for them. Possibly find some commercial all terrain truck tire to fit that wide MRAP rim size.

Currently we've found these all on the East Coast and we would need to take some time off to drag a flatbed out there to get 2 sets of Axletechs.

We'll see.....

Last year I drug a couple of sets of the narrow Axletechs back from VA for my Loadstar projects. I have seen a couple of different guys in OK that sell them from time to time. Going to pull the trigger soon hopefully on the Axletech transfercases and drivelines this fall.

No, not yet. I still need to get the transfercases and drivelines. I have been cleaning and organizing my projects and yard the last five months after working out of town for two years for five week hitches with one week off. It was a days drive either way so that left me 5 days at home which between resting and doing family stuff left little time for projects. I'm also buying the house I'm currently leasing and selling the one we own in CA in addition to working 60 hour weeks. My free time is very limited but I hope to spend some quality time with my Axletech project this fall.

They are going in a 1970 Loadstar crewcab ex Air Force truck that is two wheel drive with a propane 304 and 4 speed, the 304 will be going to a new home in a fellow binder nuts Scout. I have the MRAP wheels and tires too. The power plant will be a Cummins 8.3 with an Allison MT654CR transmission from a M923. I want to put a camper on back, probably a 10' Alaskan or something comparable with lots of storage compartments.

My other Loadstar collection consists of a 1972 1700 4x4 shortbus, hence my forum name. A 1977 1700 4x4 regular cab and a late 60's 4x4 short dump truck. I sold my 1978 Forest Service 1700 4x4 crewcab fire engine when I moved to ID, I still really miss it. I also have a 1968 Travelall stretched ambulance project. Yeah my wife says I have a sickness and that doesn't include my fleet of Jeep M715/M25 rigs.

Just read the hole thread. The trip to get it was bad ass, and this things really cool. I think axletechs would be a great option, being they share a lug pattern with just about every semi. Plus the air lockers would be a nice addition. A 2 or 3 piece front driveline should allow you to still keep a low ride height. I really want to see where this thing goes, it has huge potential
