Perfect combination you have there. Mack and Holmes. That 1701 will be a workhorse as is the 750. Keep us posted on your project.  Thats gonna be a real nice truck when you are done. Good luck with it. Show us some pics of that fine lookin single axle too. Take care.

When we built this truck we used a 6x4 sub frame from the zack lift to were the mast bolts on. When we put the 1701 on we cut the floor away and built a surport box for the cyl. shoe out of 4x4 that lays across sub frame with a 1/4" plate across the top. very over kill , but I like it...Thanks Paul



thats what im talkin about overkill all the way, keep the pics coming,i considered buying that bed hope you have good luck with it ken seems to be a straight shooter................daryl

I have used both ,,  your going to love the 1701 ,   750's are great but just hard to beat a 1701,  I like mine much better than my 1030 I had
