Wow Kenny, I guess I need to get me a blue tractor to match the dump trailer when it appears at my doorstep LOL.

Oh ya, looks awesome. :)

That looks great, Kenny! The blue, white and black combo really sets it off. Would love to see a video of it in action.

Now don't get to anxious. I have too many times used, or messed with something before the paint was good and dry and regretted it later.

Kenny that looks to nice to be putting dirt in it!!! :mecry:

Have you thought about putting spray bed liner in the bed? I like Mythbusters and they just did a thing on the spray on Bed liner and that stuff really is durable.

Also when you get ready to do your tailgate what about taking the idea of the rod spring load it to the closed position, then have it as you raise the the bed it would pull the tailgate open so if you only raised the bed say 1/4 it would only open the tailgate a 1/4.

It really is looking great.

Nice follow up, was wondering when we'd see it behind the Ford.

That looks great. Gotta ask, what's the first load going to be?

First load and most to follow will be dirt. I have a few things to do before I haul anything, #1 being attaching the bed to the dump frame. I also need to make a way to connect the winch closer to the rear of the tractor, some type of block I can run heavy wire from the battery to and connect the winch at.

TADAAH! After all this time, I can post some pics of what it will look like behind the Ford! Feast you eyes on this:
[ATTACH=CONFIG]24763[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]24764[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]24762[/ATTACH]

Granted the paint is not complete and still quite fresh, but here she is all hooked up and showing what she will look like.


Simply STELLAR! That is beautiful ! What an awesome job, and some seriously awesome armchair engineering for sure! Great job!

Kenny , are you looking for battery cable plugs ? I've used these Anderson ones and they work well. They might also have smaller ones too.

The winch cables have connectors that fit like a 1/4" stud, so I have been looking for something they will fit on. No luck so far. May have to go your route. I was hoping to find a 2 terminal, 1/4" stud type that I could mount under the fender pan and run wire to the battery from that. Everything like that I have found has 5/16" and larger studs.

Not really sure, looks bigger than 10. But it bends easily.

Just went out and checked and it is 10 gauge.
