I'm a sick truck enthusiast!

Trucks have been in my blood for many , many years now. It started innocently enough with a FOUR WHEEL DRIVE magazine in the eighties.
One of my first 4wd's was a samuria, followed by another, and another, and another, and maybe one more.
I also have had a Toyota Landcruiser whle stationed in Panama.
Today I have 3 vehicle of which I am working on.
First and forth most the once running but broken down truck now. It is a 84 chev half ton with one ton running gear and 454 rolling on swammpers.
The engine bagan knocking and transmission locked up so now I am working on working on it again someday.
Second truck is a 3/4 chevy long bed with like 35 inch tires and its future consist of dropping another cab, motor, and drivetrain in another day after someday.
Third, but coolest none 4wd is a 1950 chevy half ton. To date I have installed 305/th350, drive shaft, 12 bolt rear axle, tilt wheel, and front disk brakes.
with chevy What I want though is a jeep and not no ordinary jeep but cj5, or 7 with chevy 350 in it and maybe some 35 inch tires. IDK maybe some day after I figure out what to do with all my projects.

Yeah that looks like a cover truck from mid to late 80's 4 wheel drive magazine, looks cool. I could use that dump bed to haul some dirt and gravel for my drive way. NICE

I made it with 2 or 3 inch angle iron, formed rectangle shape and welded together. It piviots on two bearing with bottom bracket on 3/4 shaft and bolts to very rear frame. I use a 12v electric pump and ram from a high lift tailgate lift.
