If you have any more pics post them up I know I'd like to see em. Is the ford 9 a truck axle? Did you have to use spacers to get the tires out there? Did you custom build the frame or just box C notch the factory frame? I've really just recently gotten into hot rodding and rat rods but I've been working jeeps for years (11 or so). I just started work on a 4wd rod and using a '48 2A.

Is that actually an MB doing the towing, or has it been dropped onto a truck chassis?

Do you have a couple more detailed shots of the one in tow. I would love to see more of that Jeep. They are both very nice!

Yeah, looked like it was still a work-in-progress. Had a really cool independent front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering.
