1969 three door with a Cummins. Project "Big Burb"

I am writing a tech article for Street Trucks Magazine on a swap Big 10 Garage just finished. The donor is a 1992 2wd Dodge 250 with a Ve Pump 6bt engine and a518 automatic transmission. Look for the article soon. Next up is the suspension, then interior. We are already driving this beast and put 170 miles on it in the first 5 days.

Truck looks badass from the rendering. Are those Detroit Steel wheels? 20/22"?

Looking forward to seeing this built through.

Yes they are DSW 20x8 with 4.75 backspace all the way around. The next tech article will be on suspension. Unsure if I will be doing bags or coilovers.

The tech article is complete for Street Trucks and C10 Builder's Guide. Once the magazine comes out I will post more pictures here.

Next up is suspension. I will do a 4/6 static drop with air bags in the rear for towing.
