I wanted to start a thread for deuce owners to be able to understand their trucks better by asking what certain odds and ends are for. Maybe this could be a place to help newb's and experienced owners alike ask the seemingly dumb or quick questions.

Does anyone know what these two holes in the rear frame member are for?

Why are there these tabs on the axles?

Shipping tab. The axles are made by Rockwell and shipped to whoever orders them to be made into a truck. The axles are shipped to them, in a box.

Sure that is not the alternate brake line clamp position?
That is what I think, notice it's similarity to the front tab for the front brake hoses.

The other circled holes i believe are for the early trucks to mount the 10 pin trailer cable receptacle-later models were mounted in the bed (as shown).

The holes in the cross member in the rear(first pic) are for trucks that don't have a mount for the trailer plug. The tractors and fuel tankers etc bolt the trailer plugs there.
