Opinions on Roadster chassis?
 
Got a heck of a deal on a super nice cab and bed but no frame/chassis. I've been considering roadster chassis but are they worth what their asking?

Thanks what we are going to do one of these days on our burb is to do a full frame like gsi or roadster shop. Id say its worth the money since your getting the full frame with stuff already installed on it. You don't have to do the cutting part on anything. We have a square here in AZ with one that took the corners going 90 without breaking a sweat lol. Its a lot of cutting and work to build it yourself lol.

Definitely a lot of work to build it yourself. I have a buddy that owns a body shop so only thing I'll be out on paint and body work is the cost of paint.

thats a pretty good deal. Were putting a porterbuilt setup on one of our 72's and we just dont have much time (or money:lol:) to work on it all the time.

What year is the truck?
