Heh, that's cool...

You cut the fenders with the cab line, to get it to work? How big of a gap is there closed? What do you use to fasten it down?

There is about a 1/4" gap where I cut it. I'm going to put a set of original hood latchs at the back of the hood, down onto the fender . M1028

That is VERY cool. When you design a tilt bed, let me know. I've got ideas, but I think I should put it all back together first and at least drive it once.

18 months and counting.

NO, I got them from a local guy that deals in surplus tires. He has another set but they are about bald. Does anybody need any Gamma Goat tires ?? He has a trailer load of them . Does this mean that later this year there will be a picture of my truck and Velvet in the pit ??? M1028

Thats a pretty neat set up.And to think International was almost on to something with their hoods opening that way.What kind of big narly hinges did you use to tilt it? Does it have an asist or is it rather easy to open?

I modified a set of hood hinges off an R model Mack. The hood tilts pretty easy but I'm thinking of putting a set of gas assist rear hatch shocks on it. I just didn't get that far yet. Too many projects going on right now. M1028

If I am thinking right Gama Goat tires are the same as DUKW...So if they guy near you wants to sell his tires he needs to let all the DUKW owners know about them...Sells them cheep enough and I might even know a couple of guys who would by them.
