Aaron, Very nice, I've managed to get 3.25 out of the suspension and found another 4 in a body lift
thanks for you help and input Erik
I built a '60 Chevy 4x4 a few years ago.
It wasn't really that hard, particularly if you are not too worried about being completely accurate. They were simple solid axle trucks with leaf spring suspension. I used a piece of brass tubing to make the front axle along with a resin differential. The transfer case was resin. The 1/2 ton trucks which is what the '60 chevy kit is used coil springs up front, but the 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks used leaf springs. I made the springs (front and rear) from styrene strips glued together. The front differential is usually off set unlike rear differentials, so if you take a rear axle out of another kit for the differential you will still need to make the axle to get the off set. The transfer case on those old trucks were pretty simple, you can probably cobble something together from styrene that looks close enough.
Yes I forget to paint the bottom of the cab, it has been taken care of.
