Well I got er done, well as far as I’m taking it any way.
Just wanted to try a bunch a different stuff and see what happens.
This is a scratch built truck with no bought plans, just 4 or 5 pictures to go by for the LR Mack truck.
I think I pretty well covered every thing I had on my bucket list to put on the truck.
I might add the drilling rig is not bolted down so can still add the 5th wheel for my next project a trailer.
Here’s the build blog.
The steering works.
The cab flips out to work on the motor.
Rear wheels can go over bumps, and the drive shaft follows the differential.
The cabin is quite comfy.
Here’s the whole build in story form.
