The rear shackle works great, I built it so it would bottom out and can never reverse.

haha yeah that was last jan/feb.

I was doing alot of work to them and had to be able to move them around under the crane and out in the yard but it was too tight most of the time for a semi. And I didnt have one.

It actually hauled it really well. That morning the pic was taken I pulled it up a big hill and out to the road because with the fresh snow the semi couldnt make it. (andweweretoolazytoputchainsonit) :D

nice truck hows it work for wheeling?

Nice looking rig.How did you supply the air for the trailer to release the brakes? Portable?

jacko
04-03-2007, 11:32 PM
Hey guys thanks for all the great replies


epic; Its not too bad with the sleds up there for tippyness, but you definitely know they're there.. especially when the tires are aired down. Theres a short ramp under the deck for loading them, and sometimes that can get a bit hairy. Next year I'm going to put a small winch at the top that'll pull both sleds up to make it a little easier.

This winter I hauled them up to grand praire on there and also all the way out to Goldbridge. No problems at all. And on top of that the old 7.3's got over 400,000 ks on it [36]

redneck; Ya I know tony, who did you recognize from the pics? doug?

jacko
04-03-2007, 11:33 PM
Oh and to release the brakes i just charged the trailer from the shop and used a small tank as a res, so if it did get out of control you could dump the air and dyno the brakes

It wheels pretty well for how heavy it is, the only pics I have of it wheeling that I can get at right now are of it stuck or broken tho. when I get home sometime next week Ill post up some good wheeling pics.

when I get home next week I can post up some better wheeling pics (currently in sydney australia waiting for my flight)

wheres the gas tank?:confused0006:

jacko
04-07-2007, 11:36 PM
Well finally after 44 hours of travel and 3 crappy meals in tokyo I'm back home! (australia rocks)

Wow already 3 pages! [36] sweet

Powerstroke - I built a 100L tank that sits between the framerails right at the very back of the truck

tenpack - the 7.3's alright for power, 5.13 gears helps it out lots, but its definetely no hot rod.. not sure if I would go to a gasser now though just because I'm pretty impressed with how much this engine takes, and keeps on taking..

g-rod - ya we usually go on a booze cruise to vernon or kelowna a few times a summer, a buddy of mines got a small cabin on okanagan lake right near the track in vernon.

blacker - me and a few buds -might- to go hosli tomorrow (sunday) but thats still up in the air.. what do you wheel? were always lookin for more people to go wheeling!

Hey guys, this isnt Braden its it his brother, Cliff. The truck I jus bought is the same as that, 1994 ford f-350 long box crew cab. Not a deisel though. Is it hard to convert it over to what u did in them pics??? I see you cut the frame down and put that roll bar and shit on there, how long did it take you to do all that?? LEt me know what all you did cause Im interested in doin that to mine.
Thanks
CLiff
