  1. Thanks for the replies guys. I have searched the internet and only came up with my original bumper style with the license plate indent and the horrible aftermarket diamond tread styles. I might see if I can find a better stock indent style that I could have chromed. This one would block the plate and I dont want it mounted under the tail light. My original bumper took hours of press work for me to repair. It looks fair in flat black but I doubt I could ever make it chrome worthy. The truck was used for logging for many years. The bumper really took some abuse.
  2. I have one in fair condition with the license plate indent and would never be straight enough to chrome. This one would need rechromed, but I wouldn't want to waste money rechroming it if it isn't the proper bumper.
  3. Scored a chrome front bumper this weekend! It's old chrome and will need rechromed to match the rest of the truck. However, the hard work of smoothing out a factory bumper to be chrome worthy is already done. I also scored what the seller says is a stock rear bumper. I posted another thread on that one.
  4. Ok everyone... looking for help identifying this rear bumper I score this weekend. The seller claims it was off a 55 or 56. It came with a nice chrome front bumper that matches my 55 perfectly. Just needs to be rechomed. The rear however, has the right mounts but I have never seen one. Anybody confirm if this is for a 54 and up?
  5. I have alot to do such as fool with my lifters again and find a weird noise I have had from the beginning. Of course there is also the R10 to put back together and install. I have plenty of time to decide what to do with the 8 3/4. With the torque the hemi has, I rarely need to get it over 5k to have fun. I think 3.73's or 3.55's will be a good street light to street light and highway combo. I will decide once I get her back together and get a feel for the R10. Then I can decide if I need a higher freeway gear or not. My original rear with the 54 Plymouth 3.73s works well and is rebuilt. I like the idea of the 8 3/4 because it looks more factory than a 8.8 or D35. Secondly, a disc brake upgrade is cheap and easy to find versus making one for the tapered axle setup.
  6. When I did mine, I put the strips on top of the wood without using a router. It helped protect the bed a little better since the pine is kind of soft.
  7. Very nice! Great job! I wish my bumpers were that nice so i could chrome them.
  8. I was thinking the 3.55 with the R10 would be perfect for the highway and still have a bit down low for street light to street light fun. I have plenty of torque with the 325. Guess I will have to experiment. That's a big jump from the 3.73 I have now.
  9. Ugh... the 8 3/4 is a 2.76. That I think is way too high. I was hoping for a 3.55.
  10. Picked up a bunch of free goodies this weekend! Spare rolling chassis to replace my bent frame. 8 3/4 rear end. Still gotta check the ratio. Stock water pump mounted front motor mount. I have bought a couple of these and none of them have fit so I built side mounts. This one I took off a hemi that was in his 56 truck. Should be good to go!
  11. Yup... it is a brand new Hilborn unit. Sold back in 2002 or so the Hot Heads and never converted to EFI or used. Sent you a message Jeff!
  12. Little teaser of what's to come... it will take a while to get the rest of the goodies and such.
  13. Head over to https://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com and find the thread size you need in the weld in bungs category. That will dictate the ID DOM tube you need and then you can go from there. I have built a rock crawler and a sand car with their stuff... I generally overkill it quite a bit. It's up to you if you want .250 wall or smaller. They have a great selection and all the info you will need.
  14. I know mine is a later model truck, but I had a bent tie rod also. I generally overkill stuff and built my own out of .250 wall DOM tubing with left and right thread welded in bungs. I always use Ruff Stuff Specialties for my offroad fabrication supplies and this fit the bill and works perfectly.
  15. Those should work. They have plenty enough threads to run aluminum wheels too.
