    my dually build

    ok this is my first ever build thread so if it seems amateurish (spell check please)......then forgive me....lol....making a frame from aluminum c-channel and using a crew cab Silverado body I have laying around..... still gathering parts....the plan was to use honcho length links keep the trans in relation to the front axle the same as a honcho and move the rear axle back using a driveshaft extender..... however it loos like im gonna have to use a transfer case due to the front drive shaft being at to steep of an angle to work....(anybody have a transfer case that will fit in space 2" wide?....lol).....any way heres my progress....hehe..

    Looks like a good start. Why not abandon the SCX skid and make a custom mount to drop the trans some? The trans can stand up a little, if doesn't need to sit flat on the stock mounts? Another option may be a RC4WD Hammer transfer case? They are narrow and you could stand it up if needed

    Why do I care where Waldo is?

    Actually already have I cross brace made for the trans...problem is the spur or the motor will hit the frame rail if I could mount the trans tlited with the out puts sitting lower it would Prolly work....just haven't tried it yet.....only other thing I thought of was to mount a tcase between the rails and drive it from the trans mounted forward sitting on top of the rails
