  1. This introduction was created on Tow411 in November of 2013: Hi guys thought id just tip my hat as we have just upgraded from a medium underlift to this big old girl 🙂 yep shes abit on the old and slow side but shes in pretty good condition all round (cab needs some work lol), but its a rockwell double drive rear with a zacklift 403 and best of all a sweet sounding stack with a 3 stage jake brake. alongrecovery said: Nice rig! Hope to see some pictures of her working Andy. ROBREC said: nice motor looks like a money earner as a bit of alrounder had a roadtrain good motor just cab worm got to mine mushspeed said: Thats a tidy looking unit......You can do so much with the 750. We had one similar with the Rolls engine, a bit gutless when you had a big load on, but it did its job ok. Good luck with this one. John. Follow none, but learn from everyone !! Be safe, think safety, always....John.

ROBREC said: your cab doesn't look that bad are you gettin one of those ex mod cabs trimmed or not once fitted a non trimmed cab bit of a mission you got alot of good features no engine mangerment lights or abs or limp mode . cablemonkey360 said: the rot is mainly under the front and has been hidden kinda well, but I was advised by the guy I bought it of that its gonna need a new cab, so I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place do I rip it apart with a view to welding and then find out its a right old mess, or do I do a cab swap? so as down time is of the up most I decided to go down the replacement cab route. as it should only be a weekend job and then if the cab isn't as bad as first thought I can repair in slow time and sell on. yes it will be a ex army cab, they are the only ones about that have had an easier life, Im gonna swap the complete interior and dash for 2 reason the army ones are LHD and the interiors are always basic and rough! ROBREC said: we fitted a modern air seat just easier on your back if you ever do long distant job and night heater to assist the cab heater but ok motors paid for newer trucks a good start cheers cablemonkey360 said: Air seat you must be a mind reader as its already in hand, it has a night heater fitted but tbh we don't use it as the cab is plenty warm (to warm sometimes!) you right it is a good starter truck as it will do pretty much anything we will need and more without spending 50K +
