BTW wasn't there a funny story about Sam's trailer sometime back?

If your talking about Sam's Old trailer that Noah and I bought years ago then yes. WE bought it. I hauled it from Corpus to my ranch 3 and half hours with out a problem. Noah takes it 45 mins up the road and gets $300 in tickets.  :laughing4:

Sams trailers are always a funny story. Kinda like Wills and mine. Must be a Dodge thing. :dance:

The Body is on!!! and chassis is rolling!  I forgot my camera but I will take pictures tomorrow. Its coming together nicely. Noah been doing some bad ass work. I even conned Lance into sanding and preppering it for paint. I won';t be surprised to see this thing driving in another month or so. :headbang:

That's an insane build time frame. Gotta love it.

On a separat  note, what is keeping the M880 from going wheelin'

M880? No way to haul it. I don't own a trailer enough to load it up. But one day it will get going again.

The RC with hopefully be street legal also  :dance:

I understand the trailer thing. I need to get my 20' redecked. Trying to sell or trade the 84 Chevy. Got a locked up rear for the Zuke. Putting a new battery in the RC and its good to go. And I still have the F-250 4x4 V-10. :steeringwheel:

Street legal would make a big difference.  I like the road trips in mine.  Get a lot of rubber neckers and thumbs up.  The Jeep is nice but I bet it feels good to get back into a Dodge.      :13::13:

Are those "roll-it-around-the-shop-for-the-time-being-tires," or...???  That's a pretty aggressive tread, to be so skinny!

Got the 60's on
Lift on
Frame painted
318 np 435 np208 drivetrain put in
new body on
doors on

Are those "roll-it-around-the-shop-for-the-time-being-tires," or...???  That's a pretty aggressive tread, to be so skinny!
They are the tires I will be running for a while. they are 36 by 12.50 Hummer tires. But they are on 8inch wide rims so they look skinny and are high in the center. I have some 8 lug 122 inch wide hurricane rims im going to use.
