    16 or 20 ton?

    What is your thought on what types of vehicles to tow. If you want to tow a small car like a Toyota or Nissan sedan, you need to get a 16 ton because the truck allows you to do this. If you are looking to tow Medium Duty trucks or larger and not cars than a 20 ton or larger is perfect. Always think about your application and book of business before purchasing a new wrecker.

    They are in the process of revamping the 16 ton wrecker. This body style has been in their stable since around the late 1990's or early 2000. All I have been told is that the new body should be coming in 2019, no info on any features. I wish that I had better information for you. East Coast Truck & Trailer Sales right now has a 2016 Peterbilt 389 with a Jerr Dan 25 ton wrecker available. $292,950 plus fees. https://ectts.com/listings/2017-jerr-dan-25-ton-wrecker-peterbilt-389/

    ford 550 with a jd 1210d

    When you are remounting the body to a Ford F-650 or any 26K GVW chassis, make sure that if you go air brakes that the rear suspension is spring not air , because the air bags sit in the frame which will prevent the wheel lift from being able to mount. If you choose hydraulic brakes you should be fine with the remount. On your question about the F750 and having to trim the Cab to axle down I love the 108" CA which is your 2 24" tunnel boxes and the HPL-60 / 1210D. Also here is some info from Jerr Dan on their "Best Kept Secrets" of standard duty wreckers. https://www.jerrdan.com/wp-content/uploads/SD-Wrecker-Sales-Manual-Rev-A..pdf If you have questions or need parts give us a call at 1-888-231-4316

    Bed vs. Frame mounted Rollback Pylons?

    Here is a disadvantage to using the stationary pylon, which is that you lose 12" of bed length due to the stationary pylon being mounted to the frame and taking up clear free space. An additional advantage to using a stationary headboard is if you want to be able to have a side puller added to your carrier at a later time, you have the clearance that you will need. I have given you a couple pages from Jerr Dan's website on their Best Kept Secrets on standard duty carriers.
