The frame and suspension and driveline will all be saved. The cab will be removed and all the gauges and emblems be installed in a nicer cab.
My diesel buddy wants to help me out....and will make some decisions of to sell the good parts as a whole....or restore it with my 56 f600 as a donor vehicle.....Bill

I don't have any hands on experience with the MH axles so don't know the ins and outs or pros and cons. I don't know what type of trailer you have or what weight rating it carries. The front axle should fit a typical flatbed okay, my trucks apart but going from memory I think it's about 70" os to os on the front tires. And that should fit between most trailer fenders. If you have duals on the back, pending trailer width the outside duals could be hanging in the breeze. What would be a concern is the carrying capacity of the trailer. A 7,000# trailer only has a bout a 5,000# weight capacity these trucks go well beyond that. Especially an MH with the extra weight of the transfer case, front axle and shaft.

I just love them M-Hs Bill. Its too bad its a big job, I would assume the front axle is too wide to fit under a f600 correctly? Since your currently in florida, are you going to haul the truck all the way home to ohio, or you going to keep it in florida?

I am not sure at this point in time.
I would put the f600 cab on the marm frame and go that route....and much easier.
Thanks
Bill

My F600 MH rode real nice when I was hauling my big window on the back, actually it rode and drove nice all the time just max speed was 50 MPH.

If you had time to burn it was a real JOY to drive, 40-45MPH was a lot of fun!

I think the larger F700-900's look stupid with the wider frontend sheet metal to cover the wider front axle, the F500's and F600's are way better looking.

Rb48f6: Weight won't be a problem, trailer is rated at 10,000 lbs. The truck looks big, but I'd almost bet the thing weighs less than my F-150......except for the the 3000 lbs of iron welded and bolted all over the thing. You're correct about the width, the thing is WAY narrower than I expected. Thanks for the info! I'll post some pics in a few days when I get the thing loaded up.

First, welcome to the group, and thanks for saving an old M-H. I'm having a hard time seeing where the benefit is to lifting one of these more than stock. They weren't really designed for rock crawling in the modern sense, but more were designed for off road service on terrain that a normal truck couldn't handle. I'd leave it as designed by M-H if it was me. Stu
