Jack's '58 FC-170 is modified to say the least!   It sits on a Chevy Suburban chassis.  The front axle is a 44HD 8-lug and the rear is a Chevy 14 bolt.  He runs 3.73 gears.  It's powered by a stroked Small Block Chevy to 383 cubic inch.  A 700R overdrive automatic and a 208 Transfer Case back the Chevy engine up.  A Dodge power steering box from a M880 Military truck does the turning duties.  The tires are Toyo 37x13.50-17 M/T Open Countries with alloy wheels.  There's a few other wild features that you'll see in the following pictures.
