My 64 1-Ton. i have it set up so i can work in the field or just help my friends, i have a generator, gas powered air compressor, a 5k crane, and tools boxes full of stuff, i am in the process of changing over the complete front crossmember from an 81 1-ton, i am going to change the gears from 456 to 354 to 373's, the truck has a 350 that runs great, i have changed over to an edelbrock intake and 625 carb., i will be installing a 700R4, P/S P/B, A/C, modern stero Etc. i want this to be as close to a newer truck as i can get it.
i will post how the truck was when i got it and how it looks now.

Hi Otis, Yes it will have them, if you look close at the back you will see the cross beam, i want this to be safe, i don't need to be getting myself or anyone else hurt.
