I bought this KB-5 in September 2013 in Lapine, regon. It lived its life with a 14' flat bed on it, auling hay. I saw this truck and immediately knew that was the one I wanted to build.
The frame is all hand built out of 2"x4"x3/16 tubing. It is on air ride all 4 corners, ear is 4 linke, front is trailing arm with my own custom suspension design. Steering is a push/pull style steering, sing a toyota 4x4 steering box. The front axle is a mid 60s international 8 lug I beam, hich i converted to disk brakes and fully rebuilt with new king pins,wheel bearings,seals, alipers, otors, rake hoses,hiem joint steering ends and wheel studs. The rear end is a Dana 70 3.55 gears out of a 1991 dodge ram, hat has all new seals, rake shoes, heel cylinders,and full synthetic oil. Tires are 315/75x16" on steels wheels front and back. The rear of course you will notice is duals, hey have custom 2.5" aluminum spacers between the wheels which are hub centric.
Now for the motor it is out of a 1996 Dodge pick up.

Pictures will speak for the rest of the interior details, xterior details and quality of work on this truck. I finished this truck June of 2014, as been to alot of shows around the state of Oregon and won many trophy. I built it to drive and that what we have done with it, ts not a trailer queen. I drive it to work every day. It has around 8k miles on it and flawless. Very comfortable to drive long distances. My wife and I build rat rods together, he has her own 42 dodge with a cummins in it.
