LOL

The orange truck was built by a new shop... you can find them on Facebook under The Restomod Store. Super clean truck, and of course, running all our stuff.

I am getting ready to put a truck together for myself, but need to get a few other irons out of my fire before I can feel good about spending time on my own project.

The first one will be a 70 C10 that I am going to put together and drive until it sells... which means I probably won't even get to enjoy it much.... but it's all for a good cause.... to fund my 57 pickup I have had since high school.

Re: Porterbuilt Dropmember

I for one, hate my DropMember! It just keeps costing me money. First it was the front, the it was the rear, then I had to have an AccuAir management system and then the body drop. Buying a DM is an addiction but oh so worth it.

I would agree. It started with 1 dropmember and then goes all haywire from there. Then when you think you have the addiction under control you find another good deal and do it all over!!!

It has Bill Mitchell arms and a pancaked crossmember. Not sure if the crossmember Is Bill Mitchell or not. Plans are after I finish my 72 and my wife's it needs a porterbuilt makeover.

The older 50's trucks are really starting to grow on me! I love that red GMC you posted pics of... Do you have any pics of your 57 you could share with us in its current state?

I will post some pics of it when I get a chance. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot left as I robbed some of the sheetmetal for a 55 we built about 10 years ago... I have been collecting replacement parts.

Ditto, should be receiving my complete front dropmember kit very soon. Just pulled the trigger on the mild step (bolt-in) rear kit yesterday.
