Now I have gone thru few sets of wheels and on/off Winch bumper.
Started with a AMT Dodge Long Bed
The bed is not a Ron Cash Resin bed.
Since I had the 1:1 it was easy to match by shortening the front and rear of the bed.
Doors open, No Mirrors since they just fall of anywhoo
Mine also had 2 fuel tanks, one in cab and one under the bed so I left that one there and
build one in the cab.
AMTs RoadRunner 440
Scratch built front and Rear Leafsprings and Winch bumper and BFD'd it.
Aoshima tires and custom build wheels to match a set I had
Thanks for looking.

Is that truck still around, I haven't seen it in years.

Okay, Mine had a 360 but I wish I had a 440 in it.
I did a hard left hand turn sliding U-turn actually in the rain and it stalled.
Darn was I embarrassed, sure glad nobody was looking.
I always had a sheet of plywood in the back to save the bed and I had a
rollbar with lights on it till the model crashed. I had to rebuild the whole suspension
this week. That's why it's a bit shinier than the rest.
Darn it if I didn't build the suspension to scale, didn't hold up very well
Thanks davezinn and 1320wayne
I copy well.
Thanks. James W
The 1:1? Last time I saw it, it was in Canby for sale and I Almost bought it back.
Didn't fare will in the last owners hands tho.
Yup, went thru a rebuild recently after a Crash landing in a move a few yrs ago.
Shoulda built the leaf springs out of brass.

I had a '78 long bed 3/4 ton Power Wagon when I was in Salem....
it was 440 powered
it was indestructible till I hit some ice 12/24/97 on a hill in W. Salem, and rolled it..

Wish they'd reissue the Dodge Longbed 4x4s.
THose I'm sure off would be a great seller.
Ya, A roll over will do some damage.
After this truck I got a 3/4t ClubCab lwb with a Built 383 and 38'inch SuperSwampers.
That is on my stalled project shelf but I got a Ron Cash Resin ClubCab. Yaaaaa
Thanks midnightprowler & kyledr330
I'm glad to bring it back to light and back together.
The wheels are two part.
The star Centers are from the AMT 55 Chevy stepside
and the larger trim ring is from a Monogram chrome wheel to add depth and fit the bigger tires.

Painted up my own rear plate
I made TrailMaster shocks at the 4 corners and a Rancho Steering Stabilizer
added Brake lines and E-brakes
I did miss the T-Case cross member tho.
or atleast I tried
I used masking tape and painted it black to simulate my rubber floor mats (no carpet)
Added the 1/2t 100 emblem to the side and made the chrome trim to separate the colors.
They called this bright red back in the days.

Now that Ma's resin soft BFG mud-terrains are available, you could duplicate your 1:1 even more accurately
