Truck #5 re-mount


Recommended Posts

Topic Originally Created on Tow411 in June of 2015


Almost done with a re mount on our truck #5. We found a F-450 4X4 to re mount one of our slightly used wrecker bodies on to. It is a 1990 Holmes pro tec 8 ton.


We re painted the cab and chassis and sand blasted the wrecker body and tool box. Shot them in white and blue with silver pinstripe and then transferred the body to new truck. We are still missing some lights on the cab of the truck and new front end and chrome bumper.














Simulators arrive late today and couldn't wait to put them on.

Thank you guys, I'm really happy with the outcome. We had the PTO and new pump installed today. Glad I can finally make some money with it. I'll post pics of the changes as they get put on.

Thank you all. Sadly this truck was destroyed at the beginning of September. A young lady blew through a stop sign and crossed into the lane of my driver and hit him in the driver rear side. Luckily no one was hurt but totaled both our truck and her car. We enjoyed it for a short period.

Our insurance took care of it under our uninsured motorist policy. Of coarse we were hit by an uninsured motorist.
We decided to buy it back at an unfair price, but a week prior to the crash we just installed a new transmission along with every component to the clutch assembly and the truck only having 140k miles on the 7.3.
Will include pics of the rebuild.
