Re: Warford Secondary - Educate Me

BOOOO, it's an underdrive :(

Re: Finished - Custom 20x10 Super Singles For My 1936 1-1/2 Ton

I'll say, another decision maker of the whole project was I couldn't find "off road style" tires for the dually. The only reproductions available (that I could find) are the firestone highway tires....

Re: 1936 Model 51 Dump - GVWR - Commercial Reg. Issues
