Starting my next project inspired by the attached photo.  I heard this little gem coming about a half mile before I saw it, yep, had a Deeetroit.  Cab and dump body by AITM, I decided to use the Freightliner COE SD/DD kit for it's short frame.  Turns out that the short SD frame is too short and the DD frame is too long.  Being it was easier to shorten the long frame, that's the plan.  I was thinking it would be an easy build but it's already proven to be challenging.  This one will have a 6-71N from Gary Wallace under the hood, and I have wheels and tires coming from AITM that should come close to the ones in the photo.

Looks like the Bulldog went to Alaska and came back a Husky

It's been a loong time but life just gets in the way.  No work for at least the last 2 months but the time away has helped me solve a couple of problems.  Dump body is complete, cab has been painted.  I think I finally have the chassis figured out.  Photo is the most recent mock up.
