A lot of thought and labor put into it for sure, but it reminds me of Junior Tuttle's black widow bike, much more than a low buck rat truck/dd.


Not hating , just don't think it is a $3k project like it started out to be ROFLOL
The build cost is under 3k and it's not always the tools some one has sometimes its who you know. A good friend of mine has a water jet and I could have had him cut everything I did on the plasma for only the cost of materials. He hid the shift arme for me and provided all the bushings for the truck. And there is no wat I would sell the truck for 3k it's worth way more in time.

so i picked this truck up two weeks ago and i think i have made good progress so far. my plan for this truck is to build a low budget rat truck that any one could drive for under $3,000. at the same time show off some of my fabricating skills.
this is going to be my first full custom air ride setup.

Ovrkill5150 So I have good news and bad news. The good, suspension and steering work perfectly the bad, the engine lost oil pressure after about 5 miles and the front crank seal leaks like a mother. It needs power brakes, it's a real pain holding back 5.29 gears in traffic

Ovrkill5150 couple of small updates.
steering box is in and works great, the chrome one was the cheapest one with the 25 to 1 ratio; works better with heavier vehicles like trucks.
i also added the first spider.

Ovrkill5150 Ill get the new rolled style when the project is finished. do you know where i can get some titanium blocks for cheep?

BIGMIKE@RIDETECH I would definatly find some of the old roll plates that they are suposed to have on top and bottom. They might work for a while but airlift definatly switched to the newer bag for a reason. I worked for one of Airlifts biggest distributors for 7 years before coming to Ridetech.
