I can't wait to see some more progress on this! This is going to be very cool when finished.

Wish I could say, it's going great, but I still haven't had time or money to put towards it yet. I'm seeing progress on my other vehicles though, two of the three we use regularly are almost finished. The third is a major rebuild, so I'm still collecting parts for the rebuild.

I'm still looking for a cheaper option for my parts. As it stands, I could have $850 to $1000 in just repair parts for the F600. I found all the parts in one place, but still looking for a cheaper way out, since I don't have the cash anyway.

Thanks for the interest guys. I'm still looking forward to the build and think it's going to look different than the average truck. Just how I like it.

Trying to get started on my project again. Bought a steering box and got someone looking at getting the front end parts soon.

Looking to get the front cab back together to make sure it's all straight before I cut and splice on the new cab section.

Scored some tires and wheels through a friend and hoping I'll be able to make them work.

I seen a good idea on a truck from Canada, on the rear of the truck where you install your rear bumper the space where the end of the bed and the bumper meets this guy had put a tool box in as a filler. Looked like it was made of steel, would have really looked great if they had used diamond stamped aluminumun. I don't recall if the door opened up or down. Probably down and laid on the bumper. Just an idea: Hey I'm in Knoxville.....

Would like to see pics or a link if you have it.

Thanks

I'm sorry I don't have a picture, I just noticed it and thought it was a novel idea. I suppose when you make the brackets for the rear bumper, and mount the bumper the gap between the bed and the bumper would dictate the height of the "filler" or if you chose tool box. I would mount the tool box inside the frame rails and use filler panels of the same material I made the tool box out of on each side. Maybe even putting a bright recessed light on each side for aux. back-up lights in the bumper filler panels, something like recessed fog lights.
I'm planning on doing one of these in the not so distance future. I am always on the look for an idea. My plans are for one 26,000 GVW or less.

I'm working on finishing my 68 Scout and then this is on the front burner.

I've got a lot of ideas of what I want on it, but finding a place will be the interesting part. I don't want it to look like a service truck, but would like having the functionality. Still got a long way to go.

Thanks

I understand what you mean, my idea of one would be on the order of the International MTX the factory made big truck.

This is cool. I saw another thread where a guy did the same thing with a chevy. I'd love to do one myself some day but for my intended use I'd just have a flatbed, probably long enough to load a car on. I'll be honest, I've never seen one of these "pickups" where the rear fenders looked right. I really like the way 78 tackled the fenders on his bronco but that wouldn't be an option on a later style truck.

Thanks for the interest. I'm looking forward to getting it started. I've got an IH Scout project in the works now, and need to get it finished first.

I decided to do the dually pickup because it'll be a multi use truck for me. Fully dressed truck could have a slide-in camper with a dual vehicle bumper pull type trailer with winch for long haul pickups. I plan to have a generator and compressor built in underneath.

As for the fenders I'm pretty sure I'm going to use the dually style rears cut and fiberglass them to the F600 front fender to have them match. It's a big project, I'm still getting parts together, but I'll get there one day soon.

Thanks,
John B.

Sounds like it'll be pretty darn cool when it's done. Internationals are cool, but I know more about time travel than working on an IH so I guess I'll just stick my chevys and fords.

If you get the whole flux capacitor thing worked out, I'll gladly share my IH knowledge with you in trade.

The saying goes, when that IH rust gets into your blood, it's an addiction. I've been addicted for well over 10 years now.

Actually I found a few articles on cracked.com about it that made my head spin. Then I started searching it more and my head exploded. My face is splattered all over my monitor right now. It's pretty gross.
