    That is spectacular.
    Can you show more detail on the suspension for both front and rear, and also tell a little bit about the parts?
    That rear end looks massive.
    Did the wheels come from the 38 pickup, or were they from something else?

    Default Suspension parts

    The rear is setup with trailing arms like a C10 Setup. The Trailing arms are built with 3/16 wall tubing and large 1" Heim Joints. To keep everything low and out of the way I used a Diagonal Link.

    In the front I use a "J" bar to keep the front centered.

    Default Rear Axle & Wheels

    The Front axle came with the pile of junk and is original to the truck. Front wheels are 6.5x20 Firestone. The rear is a Eaton axle which came from a donor Blue Bird school bus. 9R22.5 wheels which are 165lbs each. The gear ratio is about 5.56 and turns about 3,000 RPM @ 65MPH.
