  • U should weld the hood to the roof permanently it looks great 😂

  • thinking about Ford supervan, English Transit style, thank you for the weird crazy awesome inspiration. IH built some tough old rigs. People are only limited by their imagination, if they have torches, and welders.

  • Those welds are 👌🏻 my only with that transmission crossmember is that it looks to drop down from the chassis rail a long way, just wondering how much clearance there is from the ground when the truck is sitting at ride height.

  • I have a particular affection for those "13 lettered motherf*ckers" even if my 4 cyl '60 Scout tried to kill me when the axle broke and the thing slid about a mile down the side of a mountain near Georgetown, CO in (probably) 1980. I survived, as did my co-worker and our cooler full of beer.

  • On my 58 Chevy p/u with a LS, I did a two into one air intake. I had air filters behind each inboard headlight location. I removed the inboard headlights and built screens to fit in the hole, similar to a 64 Ford T-bolt.

  • Imo, the engine and trans are sitting too low. I suspect you will damage oil pans on speed bumps! You have room to move it up, so revise and don't oil the streets up.

  • I'm wondering if the steering rack pulling to the left was a possible cause of the 'accident'. Many years ago I worked for a fellah who bought and repaired accident damaged cars. One car he had was front wheel drive, and had been pulled backwards out of a ditch. After fixing it all, he drove it up the road and the oil all fell out of the gearbox.... a tooth had come of the diff and caused one wheel to lock - putting the car in the ditch - then freed up when pulled out. This rack might be a similar cause :-). BTW, love the build.

  • I'm just curious, why did you keep the live axle in the back? was it just that much easier than replacing it with some sort of independent system?

  • You should do a hood scoop for air, haha i like the weird of center ones but it looks like yours is already setup to be in the center.

  • I just gotta ask, why use a Johnny Reb truck instead of just another base international truck. Seems you've undone everything that made it a special addition truck. It's cool, don't get me wrong, but you could've done the exact same thing with any old international truck and kept the Johnny Reb as a special addition testimonial to a truck they claim doesn't exist.

  • Jared, I really want to see you hide that engine with a false cover that looks like a 4-banger or a straight 6 or something like that. You've actually got enough room in there for an LS-powered barbecue grill too. Drive to the lake and cook your brisket at the same time!

  • Remember working on my 1977 New Yorker, and couldn't figure out why my wheels were turning left. Then learned you had to adjust it by just slightly loosing where the hoses bolted to the steering box and move it slightly to the right or the left. This was back in the days before Internet and Google were your friend.
