    AZ: Deuce Shop Van RV Tow Rig

    From what I have read, the truck has been sold and the kid dont have it any more. No activity for over a year here or on or on Pirate. I would guess that he had to become a responable adult and some toys must wait.

    Welding to a ring, lunnet?

    Cast and forged steel is very easy to weld. Preheat and a large fillet and sevral passes will get it done. If you are and ok welder then i would say take it to some one that is a good welder and has the experience to do the job. You would use a er7018 and a 6010 root to weld it but that is not...

    You are in for a big surprise when you try to really use it. I love my gasser and it tons of fun but I could never use it like that. Too slow, loves gas, and a bitch to drive but very fun none the less. Have fun with it. A drive a ccrossed town and back in traffic is a lot of work.

    What variant is this?

    That is not a comprssor truck. The tank is for fluid. If it was at a airport at one time, it could have been a de-ice spray truck or the likes of that. Truck its self seems to be in fair shape. Just in need of some tlc is all. I would bet with some work it would run like a watch. I have a...

    What did you pay and what did you get

    You keep asking "what mileage?" Dude they suck fuel. Who cares. If you buy one thinking your going to drive it every day, your wrong. A toy is a toy and the cost to operate is part of the deal. Theres a reason most private "non busness" people dont own a dump truck or a Peterbuilt.

    Old 331 gas deuces?(M108)

    I dont think a 550 will cary 5 ton. The single axle would not hold up. Military trucks are rated for off road tonnage and will carry double its rated capacity on road. The New consumer trucks are not, like the F550 even a 4x4 model is only 6000 pound conventional load rated. They are not the...
