I've been think about this.   (See pic)
Hopefully gonna go look at a frame and axles for this pig.  Found a great deal through a friend. So this thing might be 4x4 next winter.

I've never seen a dodge that short.  What happened to it?
I'd leave it like it is.  Is it a diesel auto?  They didn't make those in a short bed. That would be an awesome round town truck.

Was going to be a service truck. 6 speed 2 wheel drive. It's too short for a shortbed, I need a bed for all the stuff I do, and it will be pretty easy to lengthen it the amount I need to do so.

Make it a long bed.  It's way easier to tow with.  

Also that nv5600 2wd trans is really rare.

I don't much care for it, it's like driving a semi, the gears are super short haha.

No, just the nasty wide 450/50/22.5s

;D 


And how nice that would be with air ride.


I'll trade you a 2wd 5 speed. It has the updated output shaft. I've been wanting to swap a 6 speed.

I already got one red dodge.  It will be a long time before I own another one.  ;D


Maybe I'll just swap this over to a single wheel club cab.
And buy a semi to tow with.


Second note:  found a friend with some mobile home frames.  Gotta talk to him Saturday too....


Man these days just keep getting shorter.

Modular home frame fell through. Guy wanted too much.  But I'm still on the look out for a 2 car bumper pull.

Finay found the AC leak.   Bad o rings on the compressor.  This will be my first DD with working AC.  Man I'm spoiling myself.  Need to find another rear hub to replace mine.  It keeps breaking bolts off.  [worried]

Dodge did great going to zuwharrie and back. Somehow averaged 13...   Granted we where suspossedly going 85.  :o  ::)

Nice wood!  ;D
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.

Add all that metal on top to get hot and it'll move a lot more heat around                                                           [popcorn]
that would otherwise go out the fluepipe, Used to sell a unit that the smoke
 went through that had pipes running through it and a fan that blew out 
more of that wasted heat. They were a little "pricey" but worked good
until it blocked up with soot and had to be cleaned. All in all a pretty nice unit! ;D
Time to start burning a little wood down here in Central North Carolina. [sleeping]
I've got a wood stove in the back of my older section I use for welding!
It works good too with a fan sitting behind it blowing over the top. [thumbsup]

One of my shop buds works at the large steel shop. He found a heat reclaimer in the scrap and bought it for me. The cool thing about my wood stove it that it too has heat exchanger tubes in the wood stove. It really heats up the air quick. I'm going to make a duct system that moves Air through the wood stove and heat exchanger to super heat it.  [thumbsup]
