Twin lift cylinders, really nice. Is the lift control the rod just behind the cab, or does it have in- cab controls?

That's a really nice truck. If you ever decide to get rid of it, I've got a welcoming home down south.

Congratulations again! Great truck.

It does have the controls in the cab controls but the Rod pulled out so he had rigged up one on the outside to run the pump. What is nice too is that the pumps dont even leak and the bed doesn't go down either, when its up its up.

That truck is really nice! You won't have a hard time fixing up the minor dents etc.

It DOES have widowmakers on it though. Like Bob said, you should probably start looking now for a set of safe wheels. The money you saved getting such a sweet deal can now be spent on getting good safe wheels!


THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A BIG TRUCK!!!


Cheers,


Rick

If there is no title and your in a state that's hard or impossible to get a title then you need to take that into concideration on how much you want to spend on a truck you may never get to drive out on the road.
There are businesses that will get you a good title for any vehicle. It's just a matter of spending $250.00 to get it done. Or, you can be a cheap SOB like me and do the work yourself. If you know the right people and your state's MV title laws, you can get a title. Start by calling your DMV at the state level and get the facts. They are all different. Just remember, impossible, is the lament of the unwilling.

Later Man...

I would just buy a vehicle "document" that was the same vintage and use it as I see fit. Maybe a wall hanging or something else? I know it wouldn't be legal to use documents from one truck and use on another, that wouldn't be right. Usually our restored trucks are made up of several trucks and who's to say which truck we're actually driving.

I've used Broadway too a couple times with good service. You might want to check though and see what your state's rules are on use of title companies.

I am wondering about these "widow maker" style rims. I understand they are very unsafe to mount but are they going to just xplode outwards just standing by them someday? or are they unsafe to even take off the axel?
