  1. Any reason why you went around the tire instead of just through the rim?
  2. We put a lot of miles on that truck and a couple years ago we removed the back end and put it on a 5500.
  3. How do you like hauling them like that ?
  4. Topic originally create May 2006: Customer came into the shop the other day and said that he had a 35,000 lb dozer stuck and was wondering if we could get it out. This is what we found when we got there This job was completed by matt gibson and brad hill, the did a great job. Part Timer said: Nicely Done, Thanks for sharing What are the specs on that truck? The boss is thinking of upgrading......... Rob Waffco Joe said: Mud Puppy,Nice Job thx for posting, Joe mballor said: When I got to the scene they had the dozer out, but then i got to see what it was and where it came from and i was a little shocked. The only hard thing was that the wrecker was on a cement slab and it was hard to get it to stay still. They also had chunks of cement under and around the dozer that had to be moved before pulling out. The truck is a 00 freightliner FL70 with a 02 century 4024 git r towed said: done one just like it last month,lotta fun. good job.....john EricGodard CA said: Very nice job!! Thanks for sharing!
  5. Recreated from a 2009 Topic: We are starting to paint the truck before it makes it trip out to texas Should be able to start adding some red on her today...... updated 4-4 just finishing up the little things on it... have to put on the roof lights and paint a couple of the attachments.... then its all set I found the camera...... 4-9 Coming in for detailing in the morning got the frame all painted up... just have to remove the rest of the tape and make those tire shine... Deck is also painted up... tow bar is done just have to get up there and spray a couple more spots on the boom that i noticed outside by the sheave. loaded up the extra trans. and those heavy boom stands one word of advise... if you ever have to remove that tank use a wrecker... The wife said you can even keep the picture of her on the door..... I will post some more pics after we detail it up.... should be all set and done tomorrow Thanks for the kind words ray.... we got some of the red done yesterday. Going to finish up on the white on the rims Starting to come together
  6. 20 Nov 2006 02:53 I went and picked up two trucks from port chester new york last month, the first one is a 99 f550. we started on the 99, it was in very good shape just the usual dings and dents. The only thing on the back was the factory paint, it wasn't preped right and it would just flake off, so i ended up taking everything down to steel. we ended up painting the first half first because we had to get a couple of cars painted and we were running out of time. we then painted the back and sprayed on bedliner on the deck All we have to do now is get the lettering done and we have someone working on the diamond plate. We are not sure yet what we are during with the other one, i think its a 94 f superduty. we will either paint it up or put it up for sale. 22 Dec 2006 03:27 well we got it done a while ago but i just took some pics of it. We plan on putting simulators on a little bit later, other than that its done. I was thinking that the sides on the back look a little plain, maybe more lettering or decals or something. Let me hear it if you guys have any ideas. . I would also like to thank hannigans out of portchester newyork where i picked these trucks up.
  7. Nice looking truck. What engine did you end up going with?
