Big iron recycled dinoguts, a c60 fabrication work truck

89 r3500
76 c60
Airliner hdt suspension
If anyone remember the toyota "name your car" emblems they gave out a few years ago.

End result will be the bottom c60 +3' between bed and cab for tool cabinets hidden behide bed shaped panels

My bed will have fold down sides to make a 11x10 ish flat work table. Building gates and doors sucks balls in parking lots.

Curious as to your plan to mount the crew cab on the c60. The firewalls are different and the conversions I have seen were guys welding the rear crew onto the c60 cab.

Ill probably ne fabing or swapping the tunnel section in. The clip is 10" shorter than a standard pickup and while there is plenty of room for the sbc/bbc, that 10" is pretty important for a 12v motor.

Meh. I was to wiped out to get up so i jambed the pics up for now.

Im installing a veh lift in the next couple of weeks so that step 3, getting a 3rd truck gone and the bed off the c60 were 1 & 2.

I still havent decided/figured out exactly what trans im gona run yet.

It has a 6.50:1 2spd diff, i ha e a fresh nv4500 4wd and a gearvendor setup but i dont really trust them with that much truck. I also have a fmvb 4l80 with the same gv.

Ive found plenty of spicer & eaton 5/6spd but they are super rare od. Rto are out there but now are $$$ because every dodgebag is wanting them for their 8xxxxhp 12v.

Motor will make a reliable 300hp, just to be a dick id like to bump it up to about 400 once everything is set and running. There will be a selectable tailpipe out let for various smoke screen situations.

Nope. I had been banned a few times for a week/month, but i took them and only bitched a lil bit.

I would log in to it to delete something now and again and always got a giggle when there was a troll sent pm.

Naked bitches.

With the time line rush of me moving to utah there has been some plan chages

Cummin 12v isnt ready so im gona run the tbi 454 fmvb 4l80 and gearvendor to get running and the fuck out of town.

Safety in specs and common goddamn sense say i need a ebrake. Well gv has a tail shaft setup that uses e4od/4r100 driveline brake and thanks to a couple of pbb member ive got a brake lined up.


Cabs off, chassis stripped for the drive train.

Ime gona setup for the regular mid block mou,t mounts on the bbc. Then the 12v will drop in as if it was in a pickup.

No idea what im going to have for space. C60 cant stay @ my house. Now its just a chassis and can stay @ buddys for untold time frame. It could be a year before i get shit together and ready to go again.

The only hard part is going to be fitting the c60 clip and fenders to the crew cab. The mounts are a bit different and the toeboards/fire wall are different.

Yea but trying to build a truck then move just complicates things. Look at Mike Belbens build he bought a running truck and it still took him over 2yrs to build it to move all his stuff.
