Default Cab over dump and pup (update pup replaced with a new trailer)

I have decided to build a day cab cabover dump truck and pup trailer. I am going to post this in steps so new guys can see what all goes into building it.

Cutting the cab up and putting it back together.









Thanks for looking

Cab looks great, cutting cabs on the table saw must save alot of time! What blade are you using?

Next comes the truck kit and building the frame. It will be AWD with a RC4WD R2 trans, axial trans for transfer case, and a TLT axle for the front.





Locker for rear axle.





Frame assembled.









More to come thanks for looking.

Donny here are some pics of the stuff you will need to build a screw drive.

First get some rails from Lowe's it is actually 1/2in cap for ply wood.
Next get some delrin to make the slide
Next get a piece of 10-32 all thread and a 10-32 furniture nut and a thrust bearing it is the blue piece at the end of the screw drive by the nut.
next get at least a 50:1 gear motor and a coupler to hook the motor to the gear motor. I use an all thread nut and drill it for two set screws.















I hope this helps.

The delrin, gear motor , and thust bearing will have to come from somewhere else. I get the gear motor from PMD and the thrust bearing is from my local hobby shop and the delrin is from a local plastic suplier the same place I get the styrene.
