    520 chassis swap

    I was consdering disc brakes, but don't how reliable a disc bfake kit coul be if I do frame swap, all of that is taken care of I have read a few threads and the idea of power brakes, power steering, and multiple power options on a clasic truck is very appealing

    520 chassis swap

    King, I used to believe that he same thing and chopping a frame wasn't an ideal option for me until I met a mechanic and he's done more then a few updated suspention clips on old trucks and I must say he is very talented he is the one the sujested modifying the frame in ca see I have to , so on that note I think I have a few options to work with

    520 chassis swap

    Thank you all for your input is very much apreciated and right at this point I am considering all possible options and you guys are right the best option so far is a 720 only thing is I live in central Ca. And a 720 is as good as gold , a true clasic and very cherished so it is very hard for me to buy one on my budget I guess I could be more patient and wait for the right deal at the right moment thanks all three of you once againg for your help tavilas

    520 chassis swap

    I have decided to do a chassis swap for my 520 I have seen a few discutions on ratsun and they are owesome, but I am cooking a deal to get my hands on a mitsubitshi mighty max. has any one tried to do a swap using a mitsubishi truck? I know their are some mods ivolved like shortening the frame or extending the bed/cab. Please share the experience cons and pros ect.
