I just added this to my list of things I will build as soon as I get the time by being laid off or kicked out by the wife.




I have to admit it has good ground clearance.   ;)

You might not want to work with that truck. If this is the early  Diesel, it was just a converted gas motor and had major problems. I think the later 6.2 liter was a better motor but still has issues. We use six of ten 6.2 liter trucks where I work and it is starting to be hard to get parts. Fuel MPG was not that good on those motors either.
Do you have to worry about smog testing for registration? In some states a truck from the early 1970 does not have to be smog tested. I know car dealers in New Mexico that go to Texas just to load up with older trucks since New Mexico does not require smog testing outside of Albuquerque. Good luck,  73'S  KA5SIW
