Okay, Just for now.
I'm gonna build the Peterbilt engine and see how it fits under the Ford.
I'll have to make the Suspension adjustable to make sure all 6 (at least) tires touch
the ground at the same time.
Guess I'll have to do some Research to figure out what engine is in the Peterbilt
and what it's suppose to look like.

Anybody?

Don't get a worse headache researching the engine! ;) It is a Cat 3406. I'm not sure if it is a 3406 B or 3406 E, but here's some quick pics I found on the web.

I try and think of what everybody has done and do something else Crazier :rolleyes:
I'm sure I've seen a Built Semi 6x6 Monster truck some where now that I think about it.
Sooo. No Semi Cab.
But.
This will be the plan this,
but....
With or without the sleeper?
use it has a toolbox or has a sleeper?

If I use the sleeper, I'll extend the wheelbase 3ft (1 1/2 inches) to center the 2 axles
under the load.

The tires came from a John Deere Toy from WalMart.

You guys aren't helping me narrow down my choices. ;)
I need less Ideas, not more. :D
I mean, One idea since I only have 1 Frame, 1 truck and 4 tires.
Unless I tear down the So-Real truck I have but it has different wheels.
But if I
No
but..
If I,
Then..
But..
No,
And,
Well maybe?

New Coke?
Old Coke?

I got a headache now :blink:

I think no sleeper, more to get in the way on the trail! The steps are actually a battery box on the driver's side and a toolbox on the other, so you could use both as toolboxes on this truck. Then maybe add another under the bed under the frame. By the way, I LOVE THE NEW REAR WHEELS!!

Thanks Marty, I'll take ya up on your offer.
Guess I can't put it on the Back Burner now. :D

Thanks Matt, I'm gonna use as much as the Revell Peterbilt as I can for a stock appearance.
Fuel Tanks, batteryBoxes and what-nots.
I might even use the front fenders.

Thanks Brian, Been working really late all week, Yaa Whoo but i'm getting tired.
Yours has been boxed up and ready to go all week.
Hope my PO doesn't take Saturdays off.
I think as far as Permits, It is a Off-Road Semi (kind've) might be able to fudge something
up. :blink:

Thanks Brizio, Marty has me covered.

Dang, I've always had a lack of Ideas on build projects.
Now I have Way More than I can cover. ;)
I may have to shelve this for a short bit b-4 my head Explodes. :blink: :lol:
Nah, I'll start working on the Deck.

BTW: I started this Hauler for 2 reasons.
To haul my Honda and replace my Missing Dodge RampTruck.

I have been unable to find it since a show last Nov.
My bloodsugar level was low and I left early forgetting it.
Hasn't been seen since. :blink:
I could be wrong but have been unable to find it since that day.
For All I know, it could still turn up. :)

WOW! Great build, with lots of ideas. Here is my .02 cents worth. Use the F-350 cab, no sleeper, the John Deere wheels and tires, for the rear at least. I've started buying those toys from WalMart and taking the wheels/tires for my projects. If the Cat engine will fit, maybe with a body lift, that would be so tough!!!!

Now I have to go to Michaels and get another Peterbilt 359.......... so many models and ideas, and no room left in the display cabinet. B) Keep the pictures coming, after you take some pain meds for the headache! :(

that's a HUGE truck! could look cool painted up like an old Army truck?

there is a very nice resin "driving" axle for big trucks that would work nicely under the front of this thing. i think Sourkrauts has it. there is a pretty nice Warn winch there too that could work on the bed of this thing, but i know you can build a nicer one yourself ;)

Dave

Hey MrZinn, Can you make a Bigger Atlas T-case? ;)

Found it B)
Posted Image
Nice, Very Nice.
I see Soo many Nice things there I didn't know I needed :D
Right me up for a Dozen.

SourKrauts is in another country?

Okay,
The Plan (so far)
Ford Cab.
Army Green
16ft flatbed. (tilt or Ramp, or Flat style with fixed ramp)
Maybe the Huge Super singles in rear
Or Duel Boggers
Ford Motor, the Cat motor is soo Huge, I'd have to extent the front of the truck
a foot (1"inch)

Did that today and working on the headache. V
Didn't make it to walmart today tho. ;)

back to drawing up plans and framing the bed.

Sonds like it will be a cool truck when done I know
how hard it is to fit a semi motor into a pickup
have had one for years that was given to me and
can not fit it into anything I have got plan to
build a pickup later and make front fit engine.

It is coming along great will be watching to see
how it looks when done never thought of walmart

If I can find a 1/32 Truck with a motor,
It might work for a pick up Diesel?

Darn, Not enough EverGreen #257 to build a Frame tonight.
Uuuuuuuuuugh..

It was suppose to be a simple build..

Looks good with the older cab, Rodney, I like!! Is that the old Monogram stepside F150 cab? If so, I got a body that really needs a frame! :angry:
