Welcome to the “Bolt”! Looks like you’ll be busy for awhile! Nice finds and I like John’s idea, a 1-ton dually pickup! Keep posting and we love pictures!

The 48' is rough. but the frame is solid and unmolested.

John, to answer your question directly, yes I do plan to use the two trucks to make a 1 or 2 ton dually. The 46' cab and axels will go on the 48' 134" frame and the 48' will go onto the 47' frame that I am going to shorten and put an aftermarket short bed on. The 235 will most likely get redone and put into the dually and Ill be dropping a 292 with a turbo into the 48' 1 ton with modern suspension and brakes.

It was an interesting ride home that's for sure. The rear of the trailer ended just shy of the centerline of the rear axle with the front tires nearly flat. I kept stopping every half hour to make sure those tires were holding,
a little PTSD from dragging my boat and trailer down the highway a spell before realizing the axel had decided not to hang out with us any longer, maybe.
I wish I had taken pictures of that mess. Anyway, I digress, add to that the crowd that forms around these things when you leave em unattended for a moment, makes for some long strange trips!
