FOR REAR AXLE SOME GEAR A MOTOR MOUNT BUILD IT ON TABLE FIT IT INTO TRUCK

MITE BEABLE TO USE THE REAR WHEEL SET IT UP FOR SPEED NOT FOR PULLING,IT WOULD BE EAZY.

This build is going to take me forever to do. Need to order parts so i can start building and now we have a cold front coming in its to be in the high 20's so i cant be in the garage when its that cold because ya cant paint. and besides i well freeze . so i guess everything is on hold for now. oh by the way what color should i paint it ? it doesnt matter because its going to be the same colors Orange white and silver. :lol: :lol: :lol: Its a U-Haul truck :lol: :lol:

The only thing that i got done was to get all of it apart before my fingers started hurting. it was just to cold for this Texas boy to be out in.
