So heres the deal I am headed back to Oregon around the 15th of May from el paso tx. I was stationed at Ft. bliss it was hot & it sucked I missed oregon alot. first i need to find a frame & cab preferrably 2wd or non hacked up 4wd then strip it down & spray it, install sas & rear spring setup, shock hoops.

Dual case adapter

Tires, 35x13.50 15s bought them awhile back when I had  :dunno: tire knowledge anyways they are the heavy truck tires with stiff sidewalls but have never let me down & do hook up really good just wish I woulda known more when I purchased them. Oh well they get the job done.

Looks like you are off to a good start!  Doing it right and gathering all your parts first.  Nothing more frustrating then having to stop mid project cause you don't have the part you need.  Also, thank your for your service.  Keep the pics coming!

Looks good, and your build isn't slower than mine!!  :rofl2:  I got my truck drivable, and I'll pick up parts maybe once a year.   I've been tripping over my front axle for almost 3 years now.

I'm with ya on the 2wd cab swap.  I went that route, too just because they are easier to find in decent condition.
