Finally getting my truck project started:woohoo: and need some dimensions.
It's a 3/4 ton chassis being shortened to 1/2 ton wheelbase.
Fitting a Jag axle in the back so standard dimensions no use.
Front wings will be fitted for front axle placement.
I don't have a bed yet so initial mock up will be without one.

Does anyone have the following info please:
1. 1/2 ton wheelbase to permit rear wheel placement in the middle of the arch.
2. 1/2 ton bed side length.

Will search the web anyway but you never know.

Ta, Daz.:tup:

1/2 ton wheelbase was 116" but for getting the wheel centred in the rear arch, mock it up with a wheel would be the best way IMO; when it looks right, it is right no matter what the tape measure says.

Just measured the bed length on my '50 1/2 ton. it's 78" inside length.

HTH.
