Looks like a fun project on your 37 Husker, Just keep putting lots of time and little bits of money here and there and it'll get done eventually. I made a goal before I started on my pickup that I would try to at least spend half an hour a day on the pickup and spend little bits here and there and try to research parts to find the better places. Now it's at a body shop where all they are doing is basically body work and painting it. Then I'll finish putting everything back together! Keeping it not so expensive and finishing the little details myself. I've learned a lot over the years and am so blessed that I'm even being able to do this. I've really enjoyed watching other's progress on this site too!

Well, the latest and greatest is the body work is all done from cab to hood to fenders to all that needed to be fixed up. Now all I need to do is make the two hour drive to take the paint to them so that can get it painted!!! Problem is farming is really intense right now, trying to get winter crops in on time and so forth. Getting so close to where it's at least painted and put together running! Haven't been on the computer much but I'll be sure to have pictures next time! Hope you all are having a great summer (what's left of it anyway) smile

I just got this truck in the Gallery. Will have to go back later and do an update. I think I only got as much data from page one!

If Nevada wants to edit it, just let me know. Also ... if he wants to do the update -- that would be perfect, too.

Thanks,
Peggy M

Thank you Peggy for posting the pickup.
It's been a year now since I started on the pickup! I can remember as if was just last week when I pulled the pickup out of the old barn and into the shop to get it fixed! Didn't meet my deadline! But that would be hard after seeing all the bondo come off! Just a guestimate, there might be a solid month's work left on it to get it all together and running basically. I say it "basically" because there still might be little detail things to finish. Can't wait till it's done, I'm just itching to take it for a drive! smile Keep you all up to date with the latest!

Well, I have the tires and wheels picked out, figured out how to put on blinkers on the front and still trying to get over to the shop where the pickup is to get it put together and painted! I will hopefully go this next week! No pictures, sorry, hopefully the next ones will be of it finished! smile Keeping you all updated!

...thanks for the update. Can you tell us what kind of wheel you picked out?

I think those rims will look good on the 38 and the BFG look good on just about anything. I'm running the tires on my 37 but just not quite as wide! Its gonna be a sweeet ride.

I just have one question on these, would it stress anything out on the original back axle or the front steering?

I personally don't think so. Back in the early 70's I had some pretty big wide chrome rims/tires on my 1950 and ran them a long time.....and, if you know me, I'd even "clutched it" once in a while and turned those big suckers over a time or two....which I'm sure you would not dare do smile
