And the body looks like it could become a Zil 131, Ural 375D, or mebbe ditch it, go armored car, and make a BTR-152 like the beast that chased the SEALS in that bad movie " Navy Seals "

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BTR-152

Keep us up to date, ok? It is just going to be your plain old Pete army truck not going to change the body it all that is what the boy wants.

OK this one has been dead in the water for a bit but finally got some bugs worked out in the product trial and error process but we got them worked out and here is the walking beam set up for the 1.9 tired trucks..

















Here is the front end I set it up with GMADE drop perches for the f350 and Juggernaut leaf springs. The rear I am waiting on the coil springs and a also a F350 tranny the set up I was going to run hung to low so change of course with that.. Also working on a set of heavy duty drum winches for behind the sleeper.

Looks like I'm missing a few parts on my walking beam. But yours looks great!

Well my son has not worked on this much in awhile but lately he has been kicking it around and his gotten back after it so I have some update picks of his work..

Big hang up has been the tanks for him his plastic work is not where he would like it yet so he has scraped a couple of tries and went a different way and got great results..

He came up with this idea to make his tanks.. He took a 2x2 of framing lumber and then went over to the table top belt sander and made up some tanks..


Then made some tanks straps out of alum on the sheer and formed them and brad nailed them on the back side



Then he took stock king hauler step brackets and mounted them and the steps..




And here is his end result.. Now onto the winch deck..

Father son projects, (OR my case uncle nephew, since I DON'T have, or want my own children) are the best kind. It's great when we can help the next generation entering the hobby.
