My next Deuce project

If we end up selling the deuce I currently have foe sale (I hope not but we need the money) I will have this one left. It is also an 87 Air Force truck with all the nice stuff that came on them in 87 for the Air Force. But it needs some work. When I got the truck it was missing a lot of parts. Over time I have gotten most if not all of them together and I am ready to start assembling it. I put those brand new tires on it and now I just have to flip the rear hubs. The windshields it was missing are in the cab and waiting to be installed along with other parts and pieces I have traded for over time. If I can get an A frame built I would like to tear the truck all the way down and build it back my way. But that as of now is nothing more than a fantasy. It is sure a great foundation for a project though. There is no rust and no body damage. Other than needing a generous coat of green paint it is mostly a bolt on kind of project. I am a little anxious to get started.

I am seriously thinking about pulling one of the rear drive axles and making it four wheel drive instead. But I will not bob it. I want that 12 foot bed.

I plan to. If I do not I will flip the hubs on both and leave it singled. I just do not want to buy four tires.

I like the signle A3 rims on the older deuces. They sure look good and clean. i like them dueled as well. But I have been looking at the wider singled out A3 rims and I think I might switch sides.

I would have no problem with that at all. I doubt I will be putting this truck on the road any time soon. So the tires will not get used. I am hoping I can get a set of A3 rims shorty after I get a job. If so, these tires will still be brand new.
