Re: 1929/1930 RPU truck

that was the AA. 28-mid 30 were the square cab to use up the leftover 29 cabs since AA's were seen as a commercial tool first.

Re: Radius rod is too long

yea the AA rearends are fun lol - no forgiving on them. I think i slipped the bolt in the torque tube connection left loose then bolted to the backing plate/tube ears.

TT's were same as AA's (well other way around really...) the only difference is the model AA frame tapers out from the front while the TT is parallel. Its not super uncommon to find a TT bed on an AA.

Re: Aa 30 - 31

That bed is not an AA bed. Also entirely too close to the rear tires.

Re: Are most repro parts too small?

you should be able to find a glass shop that can replicate your original if you leave it with them.
