    Apple tree in pretty good shape. Might even mill some of it becuase that nice red color. E0EE2ADA-B75F-460A-8CC4-E61140F5C808.jpeg 42E33B5E-6EFE-4F53-948A-B019980182DC.jpeg CD19048D-BBF7-4F06-8CAC-A821276DEE08.jpeg 8C88170C-4043-488E-BC1E-BC39771F28CB.jpeg

    Well jeez, I wasn't expecting such a reaction for the truck :laugh:. Thanks guys! It's an 82 with a 91 front clip. I drove it to michigan from california last summer, only has 109kmi on it. It's currently a 454/4spd, but I'm building a detroit 4-53t/eaton rto610 for it. Going to build a hydraulic dump flat bed for it, multilink air suspension, and do a mild restoration/slight modernization hopefully this fall with a fresh coat of silver. Going to convert to power windows/locks, tilt column, delay wipers, etc.

    Sweet rigs man!!!

    Don't worry, the 4-53t won't be stock, but even stock they offered it up to 215hp/495lbft which is still more grunt than a 454. I'm doing a full electronic DDEC conversion with compound turbos and an external air bypass system. Should be about 500hp/1000-1200lbft.

    With the new motor I’ve been building and modding and I’ll put a flatbed on with air bags I’ll be able to get a third row. Possibly gear down the rear end.this is the intake for it. Should lower the powerband since the intake is much longer FE48DF30-EE78-4444-AA33-24EC2F5F00DA.jpeg

    Well the handle broke about a week ago and I rewelded it back on couple days ago but it works good. Still haven’t done a final grind on the tip. Might get a piece of hickory after this handle breaks again. 4F5E85A6-B922-4837-BC41-2FB9F7BEE7BE.jpeg E3613670-4344-444C-89BE-A4C60D182D36.jpeg Did little different joint setup this time.
