Seems like you may as well just leave the buggy home and wheel this

I am in for this build either way!
I didn't know they made a 15R20.

I have 14R20 and 16R20s. I may go with 16R21's on a project.

The 14R20 Michelin XL is smaller than the XML/XZL variant.

Michelin 15.5-R20 XL 46" tall tires 95%+ | C&C Equipment

15.5r20 XL = 46"

google tells me the 14r20 Michelin XZL's are 49's.

Funny how even in one company they can't be consistent on sizes.

Looking forward to seeing this come together, if you need any driveline adaptors I have a bunch of different options that will work with those waffle flanges on the narrow axles.

Sorry guys, the password update got me. My email was not up to date and it took a while to get back on here.

Not a whole lot of progress, other than mounting the 16R20s on the stock rear axle. Since the 9spd Roadranger does not have an OD ratio and the axle is 4.33 I needed a taller tire to end up with a good road speed. Once I get the Techs in I will have to replace the range box on the Roadranger, add a brownie box or find a 10spd double OD trans. I'm loving the current setup with 4.33/53s.

Thanks to Poorboy I have an air ride suspension off a Freightliner for the rear axle. Hopefully it will be a mostly bolt-in swap once I adapt from round to square axle tubes.

when I installed the FL70 air ride in my 93 F800 none of the holes lined up. it was easy to do just time consuming drilling all the holes. it helps if you can remove the bed for better access. a mag drill will be your best friend

Of course you love the 4.33s and 53's. Now imagine if you put set of 3.23-3.55ish gears and normal tires on that truck.

I dont understand the want to put some huge tires on a tow rig.

The 53s are to help offset the Axletech gears, and to get around on the farm. I need to drive through mud half the year and stock 11R22.5 road tires do not fare well. I agree the flatbed is higher than I would like. I've thought about adding heavy drive-over fenders to clear the 53s without lifting the chassis.

Cruising RPM is 1500-1700 on the highway. I had it up to 70mph a few times but normally cruise at 60-63

I traded my 98 Dodge Cummins for it, valued at about $9,500. These trucks are much more common and less expensive with a standard cab. Now that I know the F600/700/800 comes with a standard Ford pickup cab, if I was to do it again I would buy a cheap standard cab truck and swap on a crew cab off a worn out F250/350. As far as I can tell only the front clip and cowl are different and look like they would bolt up easily.


I'm still looking for an appropriate T-case, as the Rockwell 226 case I have is to rusty to rebuild.

I have a 97 F250 and the F800 https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/tow-r...cab-build.html the firewalls are a bit different and the f800 has a large removable doghouse. That being said, Backwoods did exactly what you are referring too. He just had to cut some "donor" metal off of old cab to graft into f250/350 crew cab.

How much for the case and how much to get it to 97374? Or possibly OK?

Is that the T1138 with 0.73 high range? That ratio would be perfect for my final highway gear.

Progress!! I've been collecting parts and pieces for almost a year now, so it is pretty cool to see things coming together.





I've been lucky enough to have use of the LBCC Heavy Equipment shop and all of the big tools in it. The truck still has a long way to go, but at least its sitting on a full set of 53s now.

Freightliner tie rod custom machined to fit the 38mm x 1.5 thread of the drag link end. I'll sleeve it before it goes on the road. I had to get the rig out of the shop for spring break so there are several things to clean up before driving.

Who has yokes for a Rockwell 1138? I need to fit 1710 drivelines to this case, at least for the intermediate and rear.




I also need bushings for the frame mounts. I could build some but maybe you guys have a lead on stock bushings?

I think I have some new 1610 driveshafts for the round flanges if that will do you any good. What is the measurement of the bolt pattern of the flange?

I need the 8" flange with 7-1/4" 8-bolt circle. How much for the shaft you have?

I also need a Tech 4000 yoke for the rear axle, as large as possible. I'm ok with the stock waffle pattern flange in the front but don't trust it in the back. Stock is 1710 and I want to stay as close to that as possible.

Sorry about the pics, my Photobucket acct is messed up. I'll try and load them again when I get a minute.
