My truck came home yesterday after a 15+ hour haul on a carrier.
I cant wait to get started and I might be at times in over my head!! Counting/Hoping for you guys to help me out :)
So please be kind.
This is a life long dream of mine and I cant wait!!

Yes it does run, has the original 220 in it.
I agree I think it has great potential!!
Love that its a dually and I already decided im not putting a bed on it. Maybe some shields over the wheels but no bed.

 Greetings from S Illinois Looks good. We like pix around here. We have a bunch of good builders around here , even a few professionals. Need to know something just ask. If we don't know we will lie to you  :o ;D ;D ;D Just kidding. Nobody is critical of anything unless its unsafe.
life is a ride where you slide into heaven sideways on 4 flats blown motor saying Thank you God what a ride!!!!!

It's your truck!  Do it YOUR way!!  The outrigger fenders would be cool with an old fifth wheel hitch and a tow bumper with a pintle hook!!  I'm a Dually nut myself!  My daily driver is a '97 stretch cab big block 3500. My next, long time, ongoing for the last ten years project is the Jeep FC Dually in my avatar.

 nice, i had a 53 R100 a few years back, ended up mini tubbed and 500 cad powered.
sold it to buy an engagement ring... (yeah, yeah. i know. i KNOW....)

theres a 54 R110 up at hermans auto that fairly complete if you need any parts, i go there
1-3 times a month. shipping out of hawaii might be expensive, but hey--at least you KNOW
its there if you need parts, right? sometimes things are impossible to find....

I would keep the dully look. I have a 49 ford truck I’ll be building into a dusky. A friend just picked up a late 70,s dialysis’s axle for me...
Love building rat rods, driving mustangs, and building websites.

I like the looks of it as a dually. I would probably drop it some two. Should be a good first build.
