Stubborn66 Posted June 12, 2021 Share Posted June 12, 2021 So, I really don't have time for another project but I could not pass this up and I like these old internationals. 1999 International 4700, 100K miles, cab in perfect condition inside and out, AC/ DT466 with a 6+1 transmission. The steel bed was in good shape but as usual, the cross members were toast. The bed was 93" wide with the old fixed side rails that the JerrDans had. I had looked at a bunch of these trucks and felt that I could fix them but for what they wanted for the truck itself it was not worth it. This one was priced right to do the work so I bought it. We cut the side rails flush at the bed and removed them, that put us at 90" wide. We cut the old cross members out and I ordered new cross members that will put the bed at 98" when I am done. I got two 20' 4x4x1/4 inch angle iron which will give me 4" on each side to make up the 98" bed and turning them down will give me a 4" side plate to work with to make side pockets for removable rails. I have about $1200.00 in steel and will be right about 30 hours to fix it. This should make us a good second truck, then I can look at retiring the 95. That is still a good truck but does not have dual side controls or a wheel lift, or AC. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
