I've got to take this one step at a time. Having a real hard time ignoring Daniels picture of the C-cab.
I'm using a 1450 hydro rear end with the pump to lift the bed. Will be using the original 149 valve and plumbing to control the lift. I had thought of using single action cylinders but I think I would run low on fluid. With double action cylinders I will be dumping oil back into the hydro as the bed lifts so hopefully I'll be good to go.
Today I'm going to by the center bearing for the drive shaft. I'm planning on mounting that carrier bearing on rubber mounts so it can accommodate flexing of the frame. Will also be doubling the rag couplers just in case. Have them made already so I might as well use them.
Your suggestions and opinions are appreciated!
Photos tonight.

Since it is already going to be long why not add a mid mount blade so it can be used as a grader as well. It would grade good with it's length.

Good thought!
My oldest son thinks I should put duals on it but I'm leaning toward the ATV tires I have for better traction.

That will be a fairly long dump box, so duals would give a wider stance & possibly much more stability than single ATV tires, but then maybe the offset in the ATV rims will kick them out further? When a load doesn't start sliding out right away, it sure can cause the dump bed to sway to one side when she gets up there.

I was thinking the same thing! Lots of potential in this project.

Use dual ATV tires, best of all worlds.
