Dually Project

Getting things ready to start building my dually. I'm keeping this one just clean and simple. Heres the rendering that www.kpconcepts.com did for me. Cant wait to get tearing into this one. Probably gonna start getting things started in the next few weeks, ordered some parts to be built and waiting on extra $ for the few extra things we need for the backhalf

Re: Dually Project

I have ordered parts from Nfamus that are being built and I'm getting ready to order the new bags for the rear as well as getting metal soon so we can get ready to build the new backhalf. Needs interior work as well as paint and body

Re: Dually Project

While you are waiting for that stuff from Nfamus you can check out one of my old rides they built for the previous owner.

Enjoy and I can't wait to see how it turns out.





I actually miss having this truck a lot. It was in MiniTruckin a long way back and used to be Chrysler blue to match the frame. You can look it up Rockered Ranger.

Re: Dually Project

Yeah I got it off some guy in North East Houston when I still lived in Clear Lake. Then I did a bunch of work to it. The wheels that were on it TSW Mondello's were shot I had planned on dropping a 5.0 in it but then I broke my hand while working on it pretty badly and couldn't work on it for several months. I got better finished what I started and sold it. Stupid me. It rode so good and once I replaced the front bags and redid all the valves/switches and airline it all worked. A guy in Austin picked it up and that's the last I have seen of it.

I will be watching for your progress I am sure the back half will turn out great.

Re: Dually Project

Pulled the bed off yesterday, getting it all ready to cut off the old and build a brand new back-half for it. Also put the new billet steering wheel in.

Re: Dually Project

Looking good. What wheels are those, look like direct bolt on, custom cut and shaved 19.5/19s or 22.5/22s?

Keeping with those wheels or swapping to something to compliment the new steering wheel?

Would match a set of AF Unions nicely or the 056 Eagle 20s.

Re: Dually Project

Re: Dually Project

Got my new Firestone 3200lbs bags in for the rear and took all the valves off and cleaned them as well as cleaned up the compressors. Also took the front bumper off, getting everything ready to start redoing the front suspension. Picked up the metal to start building the new back-half as well.

Re: Dually Project

I know I have been MIA for awhile. I lost my job and got a new one and got things paid off. Now the dually is getting work done.
