What project are you working on in Hood River? All my family is there. Those pics from Santiam Pass look great! I'm only a little over an hour from there, going to have to check that one out!
yea I was a little concerned but never afraid to build on the fly and if the results arent the best they are always making more tubing.I am even happier with the fact that I have only screwed up one piece of tube about 5' long and so really all I wasted was 2'.

I am building a new science and music building for the hood river middle school. started in nov. should be done in sept.2010

Wow. When I went to school there, the music building was the barn looking structure directly to the N of the Library.

could find out for sure but the way I understand it they are a USA 6x6 conversion and they were installed before I got the axle they were the whole reason for trading up, so I belive F600 I could get you the PB username of the guy I got it from,they are big with the 8" back space I am running on the 20" hemmitt wheels the valve stems have no extra room I think they will stop me well on the road and trail

Is that full turn on the front? Looks like you could use some different rims that have different backspacing to get more out of the turning radius. The rear steer will definately help. Looks good. can't believe how low you were able to keep it. How much lift from stock do you think it is?

I built those rims with alot of backspacing so I wasnt 9' wide and I am really happy with how that came out from out side of tread to outside of tread is 88". And no that isnt full lock I was just tired of pushing on the tire to turn it it will turn alot better this weekend as the steering will be on and operational. I think I will be able to turn way better that my cruiser with 60/14 42"s and 110 wb. I had 7" lift before I started and raised the cab about 5-6 more inches to get it where it would work so I would say 12"s of lift and lots of tire

Well if i ever get my hands on rockwell and a v10 truck, this is what I'd go for (maybe 47 ltb's). awesome truck. I think the great alaskan truck is having a run for its money.
