Here is a question. If i bought one of these bobbed do you think it could make the ultimate road trip to northern idaho with out too many issues?
If the truck is in decent shape, I wouldnt hesitate to drive it long distance. Check all fluids, lights, tires etc before leaving out and do a basic check every time you stop for fuel. I drove one 1,200 miles from Indiana back to Houston. I neglected to check the oil level in the trans and toasted the rear output bearing 200 miles from home.. I found a complete 3053a trans to swap in for $100 though. Parts are readily available for these trucks and prices are not bad.

do they come with a dump bed? or do you have one with a dump?
No dump.. but one of my customers converted one to a custom dumpbed. It came out really nice too.

I have seen a couple, but never have owned one.

I think they have the same wheelbase---- If you want one, I can build a bed to fit!!! I have extra beds and frames and fab skills that you just would not believe.....!!!:grinpimp:LOL

Seriously though- I can build one.:smokin:

My buddy and I have a scheme for a project to get ahold of the longer frame Deuce and strip the body and put a '79 Ford front clip and extended cab on it and cut and weld 2 beds together to make it look like a factory 2 1/2 ton Ford.
