Default Project LandScraper

Whats up all, i know its been a min since ive posted any major build stuff ever since i scrapped purple crush...

So lets start off with some background on the build, first off its not my truck. After working on purple crush for 5 years i realized this was my passion and started my own company in 2017 "Rohde Fabrication" 1987 v6 auto

With that said This is my first full bag job for a customer, ive done a bunch of mini notch installs for all the local guys but not a complete bag job. Met the owners Matt and Christian ( Father and son ) 2 years ago and started helping them out with some little parts here and there. Became good friends and after i bagged my daily aka littleblue and drove by there house they were hooked and after some chatting decided to pull the trigger! The truck was Matts dads ( Christians grandpa ) truck which he used for years as a landscaping truck, after his dad stopped landscaping he gave it to matt which he used for a long time hauling quads to the Oregon dunes and all that fun stuff! Eventually Matt decided with a growing family it was time to get a full size truck. Unfortunately matts dad passed away which gave the truck a Sentimental value and to keep the truck in the family, so the truck was then passed down to christian. At this point the truck was bone stock and had a transmission replaced at one point as well as a macco paint job. So once it was handed down to christian they started doing some mods such as a 2/3 drop, weber carb, window tint, shaved doors, and a couple other things. Lastly thats where the name of the build came to, a landscaping truck to a landscraper!!

So with allot of discussion on the direction of the build and the parts we would used heres what the major decisions were.
- 20" asanti black label wheels
- narrowed rear axle ( datsun 620 h190 )
- 4wd fenders
- full accuair elevel sytem with the newish VT-tank
- wishbone 3 link
- stock fuel tank
- drop spindles
- full sheet metal bed floor

Once i finish my portion of the build they will get the truck off to body and paint, and then they will be tackling all the details and getting a custom dash made and do up the interior!

On with the pics!!

This is when i figured out the truck didnt have an h190 axle but the hf35 so i contacted a machine shop to get an adapter/spacer made


Datsun 620 axle cleaned up, unfortunately the disc brake kit didnt work with the rear end being 6" narrow than stock and was hitting the frame so the disc brakes had to go. Did not want to do a backhalf at this point if your wondering.


I built the wishbone 3 link prior to starting the job

So i decided to try something different to keep wiring a little more tidy by welding a 1.5" tube through the cnotch to pass wires and tubes through and should give it some extra strength as well.

wanted to give the truck a slight chance of a rear ending so plated the back frame rails with 3/16" plate, and used a .25" DOM bar across the back behind the fuel tank


Always wanted to bed line a frame and heres the end result after spraying a couple coats of raptor liner.





The fun of wiring! not! lmao

So now that the rear is roughed in, it was time to start on the front! As a lot of you know 20s dont agree with the space. Firewall, brake booster, and grommet holes had to be removed and relocated.







Battery tray was pretty routed out lol.

flipped and swapped upper a arms and then boxed it for looks and Strength.


Triangulated the lower control arms to get rid of the tension rods.



Got the adapter finished made from a stong steel cant remember what grade.


Moved the brake booster over 3/4" to get the clearance needed to lay out on the 20s

cool little trick i saw someone else do for rear accuair mounts, tube clamp off mc-mastercarr and then drilled and taped a hole on the side to mount the accuair arm.


After what was done it was time to step up the business and leave the home shop and get an industrial shop to go full legit!!





Once i got into the new shop decided to continue work on the bed

After market overflow bottle hidden behind the grill





They originally bought ss5 airbags and didn't get enough lift to my liking so got them switched out for some re6 air bags which untuck the 20s with ease!

had to trim down the brake pedal assembly to get it moved over the 3/4"

Realized i needed a heim for the wishbone after reading the air suspension design book, lots of great info!

polished up the copper hardlines

didn't like the side walls on the bed with the 2nd bed layer rough cut underneath it so decided to cut it all out and re make the panels.





First time in the sun with the other trucks and rolled out under its own power!
