my name is scott 40 yrs old i bought a 40-47 truck cab with either a 5 or 6 inch chop. my plans are to build a rod out of it. i so far have purchased 2, 20'sticks of 2x4 3/8 rectangle for the frame, 2 4x8 sheets of 16 gauge steel for the cab floor. i just got in the mail from speedway a 6" drop tube spring behind front axle kit(hairpins etc..) got a bead roller from harbor freight and a body hammer/dolly kit for christmas from girlfreind. i hope to learn a bunch from this site and its members.
