Not much progress!  Playing around with rear suspension a bit.  Took a week off work next month to work on the Trail Duster.  I'll post some pics then.  I swear I'm going to get this thing on the road one day!

    I've been crawling this thread since the beginning, and just had a read through again.  Wondering where you're at with this Craig.

    I'm still here.  Lots of challenges in life these last few years.  All my spare time has gone into the house and work and a handicapped kid.  Still have the Trail Duster and the Crew and will be getting back to both of them soon.  Will post new pics when I make some progress.  Great to see everyone else still working on their old Dodges!
