    Default Ram 1997 SS/T Prototype Chassis and Drive Train Components

    I’ve been working on some custom parts for a customer’s 1997 SS/T Ram. The list of parts includes an x-brace, front and rear driveshaft loops, transmission crossmember, and panhard bar. (It’s taking longer than expected since I strained my back but I am making progress.)

    A pic of the x-brace and front driveshaft loop prototypes.

    I've spent most of my money on women, booze, and my truck. The rest of the money was wasted!

    If you don't like me on the phone get off the road!

    Rear driveshaft loop added. It, along with the front loop, will accommodate a 5” diameter drivesahft

    Ha-ha! That's what it looks like to me too. I thought about calling it "The Spider" or once it's power coated black calling it "The Black Widow" lol

    Ha-ha! That would be pretty cool. I'll have to submit that suggestion to my marketing department for review and consideration.

    I'm planning on it. Just got to finish the Ram, make some tubular upper control arms for the '97-04 Dakota, and then get to work on the earlier Dakota.
