Just when you thought Jesse had created everything, up comes another project.  This FC cab is sitting on a late model Chevy truck 2wd frame.  I heard that this baby might end up in a Tow Truck configuration.  Only time will tell.  Here are some of the details of the truck from Jesse.

"The Mustard Cab was cut up, by the previous owner, it was previously used on an attempt to have it on a late model Cummins Dodge truck chassis, I am giving it another chance, on a different GM frame, it was a 1997 Chevy 4x2 1500 Crew Cab light weight, (low to the ground frame), I have modified it, I converted it, keeping it low to the ground, but wanting to retain a soft suspension, I converted to all the late model heavy duty 4x4 3500 components, it has the long adjustable front torsion bars that connect to A-Arm independent axle shaft suspension and it has the long 3500 HD rear springs, with a GM full floater 3500HD rear axle. The rebuilt engine is out of the Military HumVee, a Detroit Diesel 6.5L, I converted it, to non turbo, for keeping lower cab temperatures, rebuilt Allison 545, 4 speed Automatic, divorced NP-205 transfer case."
