Installation Guide

If you are not familiar with the term Pro Touring consider the following. Trucks from the 60’s and 70’s were manufactured to perform well in a limited range driving circumstances, around the farm and at the construction site. Pro Touring is defined as a classic America muscle car with enhanced capability for braking and cornering. The essence of Pro Touring is a great handling truck that is fun to drive on the street and is also competent on a road-course.

Chassis orders will be confirmed over the phone. A sales person will call you for a no cost consultation to discuss the specific details of your project and ensure you are provided with the very best customer experience.

*Factory steering columns have the incorrect length and will not work with the ExtReme suspension components. We recommend an Ididit steering column for best results. Please speak to your salesperson to order from us or to obtain the correct part number.

Note: All chassis orders will have a $900 crating fee plus truck freight shipping added on at the time of processing. These chassis can only be delivered to a shipping terminal or a business with a loading dock and/or forklift access.
