Front end is done, and the truck is currently driveable. Rails, cross members, etc are ready to be painted. Hoping to graft the frame rails on to convert it to a tandem axle next week.
It got lowered 4.5” up front, and will be 4” lower in the rear when done.
All new brakes, drums, bearings, seals, hubs stripped and painted, blah, blah, blah.
It somehow turned into more of a project than I anticipated!

Thanks!
It came from California, got “too old” to license out there. I bought it from the original owner.
I’m not particularly a Freightliner fan, but it had the drivetrain I wanted (475 hp C15 Cat, 13 speed), it had the correct number of stacks, breathers, battery boxes, had all those items in the correct locations, and it was in my budget, so.....

I put a bunch of miles on a 1998 Century, Detroit and a 13spd. It was registered as a "RV". Was a good truck for us over 250k miles. Just looked like **** with that slant nose.
