    Repower Dodge M 37

    You know another way to accomplish this would be to strip the body off the new truck and if need shorten the frame and just mount the M37 body onto the new frame and drive train!

    I will have to tow 1031A - Anyone tried (what do you think) a tow dolly?

    This is the kind of thing I like a good trailer for or best of all solutions is pay a little to have it on someone elses trailer and they take care of all the driving etc. its a small pickup I would bet it wouldn't cost much!

    Using a pallet jack to install/remove super singles

    I used a pallet jack when mounting the tires 1600 20 on my M920 and I had myself and a helper and it worked terrific but I can see having a second person to stabilize the tire was very helpful!

Beautiful trailer...
