    Wound up with 4 extra tires, two of which are good, that gives me a full set plus 1 , still might be interested in a couple of yours when you get them.

    I got the trusses, or most of a set with this truck but no braces. Are their any out there anywhere? I plan on carrying a spare but it would make a neat demonstration at shows and stuff, anyone here ever try them out? If so how did that go? Guess it would be like driving a really long truck with a big turn radius.

    I have two sets of the trusses NOS in the boxes, one set pictured. I thought I had the complete outfit but it looks like I am missing the brace. Thanks for posting this. More stuff to try and find.

    I found an ad on another MV site where a guy was selling a NOS center console. He had no offers and I offered to buy it and as it turns out he had original manuals, a NOS jack, NOS truss sets and a few other small items that turned out to be for something else. I bought all of it, he found it all in a storage building he was cleaning out on a new property. The NOS center console will spruce up the goat when I go to put it back together as it has all new boots and data tags/decals.

    This deal would have not been possible if I had not had a fedex account. A lot of people don't want to ship items, this is where having the ability to send a call tag pays off. Once I told him they would pick it up at his door with a pre printed label all was good. It costs nothing to have an account and has paid off multiple times for me.
