    Wouldn't it of been easier to buy a 3 Gen regular cab lomgbox Cummins truck and shorten the frame and throw a short box on it if you wanted a regular cab shortbox Cummins powered truck.

    Yeah maybe. But when you get a free cummins and $1000 truck and have the skill to install it yourself for nothing why not. This total build is going to cost me 4-5k max. Buying a truck would like have been over 10k easy with a cummins.

    Had to pull the truck out of the barn to swap out a lift cylinder. This is the truck with full cummins engine and trans in the truck sitting on its own. Jounce and rebound is perfect no bouncing nice suspension. This is going to be fun. Now to wire it up and get a PCM.

    Since I wont have Lockup with the 727 I am making the bypass step shut so the cooler gets full flow all the times by moving the spring to the back of the Valve. Also welded some fittings onto the trans cooler so I could connect my lines using AN -8

    This looks like it will be a beast of a truck and a fun project.

    Got a new to me grill and a slightly used bumper from a truck that fell of a trailer so the right side needs a little work but for now its way better than the crushed crap that was on there.

    Truck looked pretty good imo, looks like a nice used slt sport now instead of a work model especially with the wheels

    Keith,

    I know you are about to finish it, but if you get tired of it let me know. Im originally from Fort Pierce and know tons of people that would jump on that truck. Good work
