Default Duramax Street Rod

Figured I'd give you guys a quick peek at the project I've got going. Stock Duramax, parallel twins, 4l80, Jones quick change rearend, 4-link front and rear. Still mocking up, waiting on front wheels and coilovers to build a chassis then it should really get moving. Shooting for >2500lbs with me in it. Cab is all aluminum Freightliner chopped 7", narrowed 14". Gonna be mainly a streeter with some occasional drag strip duty. Looking to hit a few events next year including Hot Rod Drag Week. Enjoy.

PS Sorry for the messy shop, been a bit of a thrash lately.

I dont know about that wood frame. Might not be able to handle the torque.

Crazy projects are what makes the world go around. Good luck with it Levi.

Not the best truck but the best looking cab I could find. I'm a big fan of the split front window.

Thanks Tom. Wondered who was going to comment on the lumber. Gotta mock up with something. Especially on this baby budget.

I'm honestly not sure what year it is, I've never researched it. It used to be a Consolidated Freight truck before they went out of business. It was a freebie and had the right look so I jumped on it. I'll try and post more pics as it progresses.

Totally understand all that. When I have an idea, I do most of my mockups in wood, too. I like LoBudget!

Just some advice, you might want to use Oak or Hickory for the finished product. That pine wont handle the stress very well.
