Guys , I been wrestling with steering wheels !

wanted original rebuilt but the off set creates a problem with room for driver being we have a new column .

this what we have come up with. My alternate choice. 
It was the center hub that sold me so far !

This thing hooked up to a gooseneck trailer with a certain 1206 loaded up would be pretty spicy competition for “best of show” as a car show I would think. Just saying 😉

l really like that old style hitch Tony! Perfect to pull a old cotton trailer. OR.....pull that converted parade trailer.

Thanks , we all had those kind of hitches in the day , no one used ball hitches , top lip pivoted to make it easy to hook up single or double lip hitch ! 
I had 40 cotton trailers in the day and they were both kinds !lol not to mention all the fertilizer tenders we pulled around

Would the lift have to be removed to pull a gooseneck trailer?

Yes it will. 

 We revamped it for easy removal and instillation but kept original lift.

Absolutely beautiful work. Hats off to the guys doing the work and most importantly to the guy that is paying them. It’s great to see something like this not only preserved, but restored. As many IH light line trucks as there once was you sure don’t see many around any more, let alone beautifully restored ones. What a fitting tribute to the almost forgotten career of the independent farm repair/welder/blacksmith.

Thank you Sir !

my sentiments were what you described ; the forgotten farm repair / welder / blacksmith and also IH trucks are pretty rough and forgotten by now and I am trying to bring as much respect back to an IH truck as there is for Chev, Ford , Dodge at shows etc . 
I have noticed an uptick in IH pickup interest as of lately , however ,most are rock climbers and left patina .

I am old school and choose to go another way trying to make a nice show room oldie . 
this truck should out live me now , so hope it will continue to make IH light line trucks proud many years into the future 

thanks again ,

Mirrors look great. 
 

I would vote no on the mud flap emblem.  Reason being, mud flaps are common. LP tanks, nice beds, and all the stuff above needs to grab the attention. Any truck can/does have mud flaps, so why focus attention on normal when you have so much amazing abnormal to show off with that truck? Just my 2 cents though
