In the market for a new toy that is actually FUN AND USEFUL. Seen a couple different ones. One, from Midwest looked very nice... What's the average price range on these if you want a nice sorted out, property done one?

Try C & C in Unionville Indiana...they do quality work. You might put an ad in "wanted vehicles". There was a partly completed one (crew cab) that would have been a great start ....sold.

Thanks. As far as C+C, I’ve heard very mixed reviews... How is Midwest?

All of the vendors want retail prices....which about 99% of the time is too rich for my blood. I have never done business with Midwest. I enjoy the build and working out problems, so paying someone to do it is not in my budget. I see prices well into the 20's for what you describe.

A 5 ton would be another possibility...have you considered them?

Thanks. I had a 5 ton many moons ago. To much hassle for me. Everything is bigger/more expensive, and with newer trucks more complex.

I understand the size issue...that's why I'm working on an M35A3. I like the Cat and have learned a lot about the tranny...... but still the slow speed is my nemesis. If I hit the lottery, I'll change gears AND put air lockers in both ends. The 50/50 split brake made the A3 my choice to modify.

To my memory every thread I've seen on an extended cab has been done by that OP. If you want to hire someone to do it, I'd expect it'd cost at least $10k, and probably closer to $20k.
