    Recovery Points for E450

    That spring hanger is welded to the bottom if the front half of the crumple zone, interesting. Most of the vehicles I work on are much heavier and it is generally easier to pull the stick vehicle out from the rear What I would look at doing is removing the front bumper and using the bumper...

    Kenworth K270/K370 and Peterbilt Model 200 4x4 Conversion and Misc Questions

    My personal experience is that the CDL does help and eliminate a lot of questions that my friends get asked and I do not get asked. My big rig cruises at 58 and you just sit back and enjoy the scenery. My latest creation will hit the governor at triple digits. I have had it up to 75 and that’s...

    Hitch ball through crossmember?... Maybe..

    Unless the Fuso rides harder than an FT900 you are over thinking this. When I mounted the HiLo on the FT900 I had air bags planned to go between the trailer and the truck bed but after tuning the truck springs to my actual weight it rides better than my wife’s Honda. For my front mount I used...

    Under-loading suspension

    I have leaf springs at all four corners, a total of 6 springs, each one was reworked by reducing the number of leaves and rearching them. The truck now rides better than my wife’s car and the cost was not that much. The rear suspension made the most improvement. With the original springs the...

    Cool Jeeps You Can't Have - Mahindra of India

    The police don’t have to look the other way if it is legal. Even CA has provisions to register vehicles for low speed, 25 mph, street use. Years ago I looked into it and found out that a farm plate was even better because it covered all the vehicles I owned

    So I bought a trailer now what should I do?

    Your slapping could be the shock inside the surge brake actuator is bad. I have been towing trailers off road for over 35 years and I prefer surge brakes. I hate electric brakes. Full air brakes are the best but that’s not an option.

    Freestar: Construction of a big rig !

    Good luck tuning that suspension to the ultimate weight of the camper. The three leaf design does not allow the tuning and I am not a fan of the rubber blocks. Personally I would have gone with the Hendrixson RTE suspension because it is far easier to have the multi leaf springs re arched and...

    Temp Monitoring for Brakes/Bearings

    A lot of the new Truck Drivers out there are simply known as steering wheel holders and they would have no idea what the gauges or display meant. The sensors would need to be tied to the low air system and even then the steering wheel holders would not know what to do. The sensors may work ok...
