      Yes, he took out quite a bit of length before he built the box. I know he moved the rear a few times so as to get the proportions just right.

              First pickup I've seen that could honestly deserve a 20,000 lb. GVW.

              Who makes those Dayton style hubs and rims? They look like they would run straighter than the OEM wheels.

                I'm not sure who's wheels (stock Mack??) but I know part of the front and rear axle upgrade will include new Alcoa aluminum wheels, keeping the super single tires.
                Also, part of the upgrade will be air brakes.

                          It sure does get a lot of looks wherever he parks it!

                                Are you sure that the mill isn't set up on the job?
