I sent pictures that included the dimensions from my brake components to the ground and all the dimensions of the truck in a 360 fashion and Darkos answer was no a stock 91 Dodge d250 is too large for their wind tunnel. As to getting a Baseline the v1.2 cap weighs 35 pounds and can be handled by me or somebody smaller with ease the headache rack portion weight might be 50 pounds and I can have it stripped down to stock configuration in 15 minutes 30 minutes tops with an assistant make it 5 minutes as to the missing tires I can simulate with wood with the same spacing and protrusion but it still doesn't fit in the tunnel so back to models
Too bad they didn't ever put a Cummins in the Dakota, S-10, D-50, T100 then imy truck would fit. But I don't think it would be wise to put over a ton of payload into any of those small size trucks or pull a '85 F-250 4x4 on a 2000lbs trailer
thank you for your help looking forward to getting a 1:8 or whatever size he says will fit in his (grays garage) water Channel. printed with modifications that can be removed and or added to the stock configuration to go towards where I want to be
