    Not sold on how useful lifting the deck up would be, but that sure is a BEAUTIFUL truck.

    He was just bragging about how "powerful" the wheel lift is, pretty useless for lifting the deck as it will be 6' from the dock when it is the correct height. It is just a real nice toy hauler.

    The deck slides forward though. At 4:30 the edge of the deck is directly vertical to the tow-bar that is propping the truck up.

    Almost my favorite truck. The '38 looks way better, IMO.

    But, they did a nice job on it. Kept the look, even though so much isn't the original design.

    Mine, before...

    "Nice" would be if it didn't weigh too much,
    and could carry allot.

    What does it weigh empty with all the clap trap ?
    And what is the gross weight ?

    It's hard to do light & versatile.

    Someone did a gorgeous job on that restoration/mod. I’ll take the blue Diamond T pickup in the Recommended Videos they did, though.

    That is a very cool truck, regarding weight, it is likely no heavier than a regular class 5 or 6 tilt bed. The stinger is kinda questionable though, who in their right mind would haul a hot rod on a stinger lift?
