Default New crawler project

So Junkyard and I have a few pieces for a new project. We acquired a military Chevrolet chassis with heavy duty axles. We also acquired a half ton Chevrolet that has some rust. The frame and axles are good. We also acquired 2 fairly rust free 2door cabs. We would like to locate a decent square body 4 door cab to put on the Military chassis or to make one of the 2door cabs into a 4 door with out looking completely Hillbilly.

Sounds like a fun project but this is the image that keeps coming to my head.

I agree, mount two cabs back to back, leaving the rear passengers facing back...

4 doors, 2 hoods, dry storage under one,
Would be different and cool.
Leave the steering wheel in both sides but hook the rear one up to a light on the back.

If we put them back to back there definitely wouldn't be anything like it out there that's for sure.

I like the back to back look better. Here is one with them both facing forward filling the gap with filler metal. We are going to get started Saturday if anyone wants to play with some old Chevys.

Default Re: New crawler project

two fronts = two engines = two front axles

Rear steer the hard way, two drivers.

Junkyard found a 4 door cab. It is going to be a 4 door on a 2 door frame so the rear wheels will be right behind the cab. I have seen a few done this way. I'll post progress pics as we get er done.
