Hey all, just joined the forum though like most I use this all the time for research and learning. I was stationed at fort hood for a years, a neighbor got me hooked on the AD trucks (I already had a 76 c10) and in the last few years

I have collected quite a few AD parts trucks but finally getting her ready for the road now. We relocated to Indy and now I have dedicated winter time to iron issues out with her.

The truck:
53 Chevy 3100. Rebuilt 235 848 head, w/ full oil filtration, dual exhaust, Carter carb, AC (vintage air), Alt, power steering, industrial chassis (dodge Dakota ifs/rack).

Still ironing out issues but excited to drive her this spring and summer.

Hello 73kay,

Sounds like you have a nice project going on. "Industrial Chassis's" that's one I've never heard of. I had to check out their website. I'm looking forward to seeing a couple pics.

Welcome to the Stovebolt.

Welcome from another Great Lakes Bolter.
Agreed that you will have to share some photos and updates on your project. Maybe in the Project Journal section.
Also make sure to check in in to the Great Lakes section.

Here is an old pic. It’s just rattlecan red from tractor supply. I believe in keeping the truck running as much as possible plus. I have a t5 mated to the 235.

As for industrial chassis, they make a cross member that uses dodge Dakota suspension. The track width is just about perfect, rack and pinion, it was designed to be a truck suspension with more suspension travel and I was able to use gm calipers and match my f**d 9in bolt pattern.

Welcome to Stovebolt.com! You are headed to a great place for working on that truck. I did my first frame off resto ('39 1/2-ton) while stationed at Ft Harrison in the early '90's -- found every service I needed (babbited engine rebuilders to strippers to body work and painting, machine shops and parts, etc) all within 10 miles or so of the house. Ron (we b old) can tell you more about the area, as can several other Bolters.

Glad to have you with us ... officially.

John
