    They’re 255/30r24’s looking at them how narrow they are probably should have done 275/25r24’s at least in the front. I’ll probably bust these tires all up like I used to do on my 19’s with my other dually.

    third weekendish in March is a good time to crash Amelia Island with all the Concours de’Elegance things they have going on. Friday before there’s the huge Werks Reunion where hundreds of Porches are on display.

    You can camp right on the beach. Just took my family camping for the first time with out 4Runner with a rooftop tent. It’ll probably end up on the roof of our Sundial or over the bed of the Binz if it ever gets done. I know that’s a lot of talk.  Lately just trying to keep debt down, hang with my kids, and work my day job and moonlight all at the same time. Currently repairing massive rot on a ’75 German military doublecab.

    Wanted to dig your thread up…. I love these square bodied trucks!!!  If my old Red one comes back around… I’m buying it! 😎

    I love how you did the bed floor..  But I will be surprised if your pumpkin isn’t hitting the bed floor before the frame hits the ground… 😎

    I can tell you miss that one…. 😎  The body dropped dually… It takes a lot of work to accomplish all that…. 😎  When ever I think about selling mine… I just think of all the work that went into my truck..  My love affair with dually’s is different than the one I have with VW’s…  But a strong one none the less..   DSCF9514

    yup. would have been easier just to fix my old dually than build another. oh well. pretty sure that dually went to the scrap pile. it was passed around a lot after i sold it.

    I think my problem is i love too many different kinds of vehicles equally, it’s why i rarely get anything accomplished. i’m spread too thin over too many projects.

    I want to work on the Binz, I did buy a few pieces of KF during the black friday sale. I’ll get those welded in. Almost got the dually bed welded back up. This year I need to do a bunch of work to the Centurion. needs brakes, control arms and of course an altitude adjustment.

    Ragtop has a fresh transmission and engine sitting on the floor needs installed.  I’m always working on other peoples shit and never have any time to work on my own shit. Fell short of my moonlighting goal for the year. spent time with the family, these kids wear me out. I need to find a better balance. I think getting rid of my day job will help out lol

    I try to post pictures, but my last couple posts didn’t post for some reason.

    humm… I haven’t had any problems posting, even big pics.. are you using that little square button on the end of the tool bar above??.. this is probably a problem for Zack….

    I imagine most of us like more than one brand of car.. We are”Car guys” 😎  😎  😎  I really try to keep my focus narrow…  whether thats good or not, is yet to be determined… 😎

    Every time I read this or think about it…. I keep thinking your crazy…. 😎  Just take a look at your TSP… I bet it’s pretty big… I had mine spent in the first year of KCW, …. Just keeping it open!!!!  I now have ZERO investments… Lucky me…  Keep in mind, self employed is right next to unemployed.. . But if I had stayed GOV service.. I would probably be pretty close to getting to retire I would have 30 years in now…. If I had stayed.. and a HUGE fucking TSP.. 😎 Just saying… and your back hurts…. ….  Shoulda woulda coulda!!!  I wouldn’t change a thing.. but… Just sayin… I think Tinker AFB would have sucked the life out of me by now… But I betcha my back would be in a different place though!!!!!  😎

    I’ll support ya no matter what ya do!!!  I know how talented you are and how driven you are… 😎 😎

    Now… Lets see some sick dually pics!!!  I wanna do some sort of graphics on mine.. but I can’t make a decision on what. 😎

    It’s welded and all bolted back up. Still needs some welds ground down. Need to make some 7.5” risers to mount it to the frame now.

    been taking it easy on the back. I haven’t been back to my day job in a while. That makes me happy. The thing is John, I’ve only been there 9 years and it’s already draining the life out of me. I need to get out of there. I’m happy working on cars with minimal interaction with idiots. I’m a non-comformist, I can fake it for a little while, but the government is no place for me. I think o can float a few years of my mortgage on my TSP. I have most of the equipment to operate. Legally I can do it in my shop. Ideally I’d like to have more of my personal projects progressing more.

    that said, I’m gonna weld some shit on my Binz. Just caught a glimpse of another bad Binz being build on IG so I need to step my game up. (I think I’ve been saying that for nearly a decade)
