This project started with two main vehicles and a lot of small parts and pieces from others . The main body is a 1968 suburban cut behind the rear doors with a pickup cab welded to it to make a crew cab. The frame is a 2003 2500hd Chevy crew cab short box. It has a 6bt cummins with compound turbochargers hx35/ht3b with a possibility of a borg Warner s475. It has interstage cooling between atmospheric and secondary turbo then a duramax intercooler after that. A Hamilton 178-208 camshaft, Hamilton 165# valve springs and retainers, fluiddampr harmonic balancer, adjustable timing gear, gear driven air compressor, steed speed manifold, arp head studs, and several other small mods. The interior is out of a 2016 Silverado ltz. I have a nv4500 as a transmission for now but I am looking to get a g56 for it instead. I have traction bars for the rear axle.
I this project started with me wanting a 3/4 ton truck for moving my boats and gathering projects so I didn’t have to use my friends anymore. I went looking for trucks and found that any of the ones I wanted were priced way to high for me. So I decided I might as well build what I wanted instead I found a frame on Facebook marketplace and I already had the suburban and I decided I might as well build what I want how I wanted.
