So I got some resin parts 3406b,tires all around and a lift axle. This jump started it again and I made a headache rack for it.

I like the tyres, the rims, the lift axle, the headache rack... COOL RIG!!!
Just a sugestion, I like the kit front bumper but this rig will look better with a Texas style bumper.

That is cool though the head ache rack makes me think it would be a good roll away. That is on truck my dad never had was a rollaway. A few wreckers though. But it looks great keep it up.

Great start.I think these things are rugged looking.Glad you took the lug tires off the steering axle.I must disagree about the texas bumper,maybe a "box" bumper like an AMT alaskan hauler KW would look good with the heavy look your going for.All your builds look great,so I'm sure what you build will have the porportions and look.

It looks like you are off to a great start. I have one question, though. It looks like in one pic, the front of the cab is tilting forward slightly, are you having problems with the cab and hood lining up correctly, too? I'm building a Ford LTL 9000 currently as well with a custom sleeper, and with the cab taped to the front sleeper wall the way everything is supposed to be lined up, the cab and hood line up perfectly, but the interior does not sit on the frame mounts. If I just have the cab and hood with the interior mounts sitting on the frame, the cab nose dives and does not line up with the hood. Are you having similar problems?

I haven't really messed with the cab and hood yet, sometimes it lines up.

I have found that whatever conventional I build I have an issue.I now mount the hood then play with the cab mounts to make it fit the hood.

I agree where did you get the heavy axle tires ?
And the 3406 cast ?
This will look good when done !

The liftaxle tires and the 3406 came from Gary Wallace and the drive tires came from Ebay. Here is Gary's email gwtrucks@yahoo.com
