Fotune cookie say, "Outlook no good for this year"
I'm in no hurry, I got a few others in process too. I did just get another Blackfoot Extreme body though to stretch the bed.

Are you going to use the frond solid axle w/ leaf springs from the Semi rigs, or go with the A-arms?

I'll be using the semi beam axle. Unless I can pick up a semi front driven axle with out spending an arm and leg. RC4WD may or may not have one in the works.

Well I dug this project out of the closet this morning and got a little work done on it. Started on the bed, cut another BFE bed up for extensions and started assembling the bed. There's going to be A LOT of filling and sanding! But it should look pretty darn good when it's done.





I extended the bed on either side of the wheel wells, and the back is a tad long but looks pretty good with the dually fenders on.

Oh yeah, I'm using those dually fenders! Plus the dually fenders seem to distract from the bed being so long and keep it looking somewhat proportionate.
I'm working on some inner fenders now, more pics later.......

A little progress on the inner wheel wells. Used 1/4" styrene tube and sheet.

It's about to go back in the closet, I've done about all I'm going to do for now. I won't wait as long though to pull it back out.
