Talking my 48 cummins powered pickup build

I picked up the 48 a few weeks ago and it is very clean inside and out, originally planed to drop my 4bt in it, but scoared a 95 cummins for $700 with a built 12 valve and built 47rh, now the 48 cab is going on the 95 chassis because the body is shot on the 95,

Here is this weekends progress

The cab is just sitting there and still needs to be fitted and moved forward about 6-7" and going to shorten up the frame about 35" once the cab is mounted

Awesome looking build but HOW IN THE HELL did you score a 12 Valve and a transmission for that cheap?

Tow company had it, appearently someone loved this truck at one point, it has A LOT
More extras on it too, but looks like he took the wrong path and got into drugs, it got impounded, no one came for it, and the tow company didn't really know what it was, just that it was very rough, he even looked a little dissapointed taking that much $ from me but I couldn't give it to him fast enough! It still ran and drove great! Just looks and smells like a POS

i think you should leave the frame alone and just put a long deck on it. i think it would be so cool

I'm still tossing around a lot of ideas as it goes along, and thought about that, but I think it will be way to long to look right, but you never know, once the cab is slid forward into position, I could flad bed it, it would be like a trailer you can drive haha

That one does look good wolfie, its about 99% chance it will be a flat bed as I can't shorten it enough to fit a bed,

And dodge dude.... ya it pretty much a sure thing on the stacks, but I am going to do something a little different with them that I haven't seen on the street yet ;-)

Yeah, probably wouldn't make it far in this state either.

Though I have gotten away with straight pipe for 5 years now and not a single comment from law enforcement about it. Been pulled over for no mud flaps once by some noob cop that looked no older than 21. Damn I feel old now. I have like 9 years on this kid.

I didn't take him seriously... still no mud flaps haha. the other time I got pulled over was for no license plate lights...stupid bulb fell out of its socket and was hanging by it's wire.

Never pulled over for speeding, noise, or excess smoke in the big truck. In cars I have gotten pulled over all the time for speeding and such, never once in the Dodge. strange. Guess cops either like or just don't pay attention to full size trucks around here.

What I find really amusing is getting pulled over by some 'kid'... and him proceeding to lecture me about my driving. I just kinda look at him funny, and point out to him that I have been driving longer than He has been ALIVE, and to save his 'sage advice' for his kids. Write me a ticket, or let me go, spare me your lectures. Of course, I don't even remember the last time I was even pulled over, let alone, got a ticket..... think it's been six years or more.

I've never gotten a ticket Only been pulled over 3 times in 3 years of driving, one for no head light, one for having my seat belt under my arm and once by the ministry for having a glass pack exhaust.

Anyways I just wanted to subscribe

Well not too much progress today, but every little bit counts I thought for a moment I could utilize the factory cab mounts but of corse its not that easy, so I removed the mounts from the frame and got some iron comig tomarow to fab some new ones, hopefully will have the cab in its final place and mounted in the next couple days
