Shop Truck

We needed a truck to display some of the stuff I want to build and sell as well as showcase other folks products we want to push.

This is what we came up with so far:

You will want to beef up that front slider mount. You will need thicker parent metal to slide on, that bolt on the thin metal will just wear a hole i think.

You could do a thicker side piece and enlarge the old some and run a spacer between the bolt and slot, so there is a rolling member versus a sliding one.

Truck looks awesome though, keep up the awesome work.

How do the suspension requirements on a truck like this compare with one running on asphalt? Is it as critical?

Most setups I've seen use Delrin on both sides with a lot of surface area. That spreads the load and makes it a low friction contact.

I am sure all of the custom parts show cased are just for mock up. The real parts will look like they're robot welded.

We made an attempt to start on this thing exactly two weeks before its debut. We failed and keep in mind we were moving along quickly. ...and I have another hernia on my left side now. It has just opened up a little so I am going to nurse it the best I can to get through the summer anyway. The tubes and hose business I bought is doing well so I won't have to put out to much to keep the coin coming in.

Heck no on the sloppy fab. The neater I make them, the more I have to charge. Those are some of my best welds.

The rear shackles are just there to keep the springs from moving side to side. Not shown yet is the high impact plastic that the spring eye will slide on. This is the prototype spring relocater kit I want to offer. This being the race version, the hangers/shackles only purpose is to support the weight and side to side movement. I may even build some out of 3/16" aluminum.

We are going to put dually 40's on the wife's first gen. When we get around to it, I will build a prototype "heavy duty" spring relocator kit. Here in WV, the entire width of the tire has to be covered with a fender. Not only is it the law, I would hate to have to dd something that was over 8' wide. lol

The Toyota front end looks a little goofy under the full size. The first gen frame is narrower than the Ram50 frame, believe it or not. We had to cut everything off the front and rear and move closer together. This took a lot of time I wasn't figuring on.

This is the same suspension that was under Bodacious. Fiberglass springs cut and sanded to achieve the desired spring rate. I have no worries about the rear suspension on the drag strip. The front suspension is another deal. Something will have to be done to prevent spring wrap. I have a set of aluminum ladder bars I was thinking about trying.

I am also developing a mechanical clutch with sprag to adjust the amount of power delivered to the front end. The clutch is very similar to an inline PTO clutch. These items are being added to our gutted cases. Obviously, if we sling a 1500hp engine in this thing the front would die on the drag strip. The sprag will release the front end and allow it to free spool once the rear slicks grow large enough.

I don't think it will be so critical on the drag strip as the front will hopefully just be hanging there for a little bit. Something like flashlight drags will require the front to pull right off the bat.

I also wanted to add that the cell, battery, chill water tank, ect.. will eventually find their way under the bed surface. We are going to haul stuff with this jewel. I'm betting I could haul a full load of TP without incident.
