Got around to a test fit under the wrecker bed today. It's tight down there between the differential and the front of the lift but everything is fitting as planned. Time to fab up the 4 inch square tube mounts that will bolt into the frame rails.

If I'm lucky I will get it mounted next weekend.

Looks like you might drag the back end if you climb or come down off a little bit of a hill. Maybe it's just the angle of the picture. Definitely a neat rig though!

That picture isn't where the lift will be, it's just the first test fit. I had to do some massaging with the grinder. Once everything fits as designed it will be much higher.

The lift was too low so I had to cut the mounting plate from the wrecker bed and raise it 4 inches. That raised the end of the lift from 24" to 32". Much better.

Getting the final welds done now.

Yup yup, the wheel lift looks good. Question, how did you adjust the WB 4" ? I'm curious because I had that issue once and found that if you flipped the springs front to back, it gave you the 4 extra inches.

Well I'll be damned. I'm assuming that picture was taken at Ft Hood TX. I picked up the truck from DLA in TX about 2 years ago.

Thank you for posting this picture.

Sunday May 3rd, 2015 was the date info on the pic. I don't know if that's the original date or the date I got it.
