I have some food for thought for you, JJ.
I've thought this might work but have not tried it yet so might be blowing smoke. If you want your front fenders to flip frontwards but they hit the hood, maybe make a six inch slide for the hinges so they pull ahead when you first pull the top of the fenders, and then the assembly starts to flip, giving you quite a bit more clearance from the raised hood. Also, some vehicles start to get narrower down at the back of the fender bottoms, so if you just flip the fenders from the original position the narrower part has to go straight up for a while, scraping over the widest part of the body. But if you pull them ahead first you might not scar up your truck. You also might have to mount your bumper to the hinges so it flips down out of the way of the fenders and grille.

If you're thinking of modifying your box wildly, maybe Photo-Shop some of your ideas first to see if they look OK or not.

Good Luck.

Welcome to Undead Sleds!!! I gotta read back through your ideas on the truck, but I gotta say, this is an awesome picture!

Might even need to do a caption contest for it?

Friend of mine built one of these trucks recently. Put it on a 80's C10 frame, said everything almost bolted up in the factory holes. He even used the 80's stepside bed, seems like he had to shorten it about 3" in the front to line up the wheelwells. He put a big block 427 out of a wrecked fire truck in it, it's a hoss! The truck he started with was a one owner, less than a 1/4 mile from my house. I had tried to buy it a few times, original owners son wouldn't sell, it sat under a shed for 30 years at least. Only rust was in the bed and rear fenders from hauling fertilizer when they farmed. Owner ran into my friend at the parts store one day and asked him if he wanted it. He had seen another one that he had done, a 69 on a 80's 4x4 frame, and liked it. They are about the same age, early 70's, so I didn't feel too bad about not getting it, guess he didn't want a kid of 58 like me to screw it up!
