Saturday I started doing a little welding on the trailer. The plan is to build something similar to the Morris mule. I’m always open to ideas and suggestions
This will be built using 2”x 2” .12 tubing and 1.5”x 1.5” .12 tubing.
The goal will be:
Haul two kayaks
I owned two bother were 345 t18 trucks. One had 16x38x15 tsl's bone stock with minor fender trim it looked like the belonged and that truck was a monster off road. The other was basically stock and has been restored by current owner.
Sorry about the hijack back to the chief build
A Dana 300 would be a nice option as well. With the exhaust I always ran both pipes down the passenger side and used the round ford truck style mufflers. That being said I certainly understand wanting to work with what you have. I would love to build and old j truck or maybe even an IH full size...
I always 4" suspension lifts and 36" tsl's on my chiefs. Your offset diff and a center output to case like a Dana 20 will work fine. If you can find them a tf727 with a Dana 20 works well. I used get a tf727 out of an 80's fsj and a tf727 and dana20 from a scout. Install the scout output shafts...
