  1. We are sad to report that we have lost one of our local tow company owners. Danny C. Fry - 75, the owner of Poor Boys Garage & Salvage of St Robert Mo passed away this morning, 2/6/2020. Danny had fought a battle with cancer for approx the last year and died peacefully in his sleep this morning. Poor Boys Garage & Salvage was the main player in the heavy wrecker business in Pulaski County for several years. Danny was also a firefighter for many many years to include being Fire Chief of Saint Robert for several of those years. A firefighters funeral and a tow truck possession are planned. Details are to follow and this post will be updated when the plans are made. The owners and employees of Anybody Towing wishes his family and employees our deepest condolences. Update: Funeral Arrangements https://www.memorialchapelsandcrematory.com/obi…/Danny-Fry/… Procession To honor Danny Fry’s 60 years of wrecker service, 46 years of fire department service and 16 years of law enforcement service, an Emergency Services Procession will be held.

We will be leaving the Oasis at 12 Noon on the 25th. We have been asked to be set up at the funeral home by 1 pm for the 2 pm service. Only local tow companies trucks will be allowed in the funeral home parking lot (small lot) Everyone else will be parked southbound on State Hwy 5 with a city/state supplied lane drop.

  3. I purchased this 99-older Century 411 bed for parts last night. My question is, What is the purpose of the extended length, adjustable pulley?
  4. As I am watching Rescue 401, season 1 in Netflix, what is the bed brand that is on the GMC ton truck that Steve's Towing owner drives?

  6. I'm happy to see 4wd is going to be available... But disappointed with no GMC offering, but I had heard that from the get go a year or so ago.
  7. From someone that recently bought a newer rollback... Go Dodge! It seems that a lot of the Fords that I looked at had a new engine installed at 100K. This was for gas or diesel. After about the 50th one i looked at that a new engine, I decided Dodge was the way to go. My only complaint with my 15/5500 is the tiny fuel tank. 22 gallons bone dry fill ups. If Dodge would fix that, they would have one heck of a truck.
  8. http://www.off-road.com/blog/2018/02/02/all-new-chevy-hd-pickup-spotted-testing-in-the-snow/ At least to me the dually pictured seems to have a large bolt pattern wheel on the front. Looks like a pickup 4500/5500 is being tested too.
  9. I'm a little rusty on mine, but I believe that it is probably not the cluster. Most likely its a wiring issue or second its a sending unit problem. If it was a 3500/2500 or 1500 id say cluster 1st and sending unit second. However since its a 5500, its a wiring problem my guess.
  10. Ok... My first thread on the new board and I wanted to make it something memorable. So I decided I wanted an (un?) official watch party on GM's return to the medium duty market with what insiders are saying will be the Silverado 4500/5500 line. Currently it looks like at least 2 trucks have been built, one regular cab and one crew cab. I personally hope GM does something about the grille. On a side note: I'll add pictures when I get that figured out...
  11. anybody
