    well did some rust management and got the cab primed and base coat of paint on. It was a last second decision to go black but ive got a few choices from here; on one hand i like the look of night camo (black, gray, white) but im very inclined to do a Vietnam tribute and use the stars and...

    bobbed deuce with no modification to springs?

    ideally you'd wanna calculate the best position based on the load you intend to haul to maintain balance and stability id prob say the best position would be centered between the two or slightly rear of that. id suggest springs off of the m105 trailer or off of one of the Gen trailers (more...

    bobbed deuce with no modification to springs?

    are you asking about removing the entire axle assembly, the axle shafts, or the drive shaft between the two? the term bobbing refers to removing an axle thus only 4 wheels on the truck while shortening the frame. some have opted to retain the full length of the truck and remove an axle for...

    M200A1 springs strong enough for bobbed deuce?

    ever find any info on this? ive got a winch truck and a little added spring up front might be nice. ive looked at the use of the m200a1 as a donor for a bobber and it looks like the associated hardware might not transfer over. looks like most of it is welded on to the frame of the m200

    Lifted Bobbed Deuce leaf springs

    the rear could be accomplished by swapping the bogie out with that of a 5ton i believe (night be wrong but i think it would give some lift) at the very least it gives the spacing between axles to accommodate bigger tires (14-16.00's). that of course leaves you with an anemic truck unless you do...
