Got to take the rear yoke off and swap the drive gear for a toothed pickup and then get the proper sensor. Then whatever speedo you run has to have the dip switches set to match the rear ratio and proper tire size.

I found an 86 Pete sitting at a guys place today, its missing the hood, engine, trans, radiator, and drive line. But the cab is complete with good glass and doors, the interior is in above average condition, and its still got all the axles and a Pete air leaf suspension. I figure if I can get it for cheap I'll haul it home and use it for parts. The frame is no good to me since its aluminum though......

Maybe somebody here can educate me on aluminum frames. I never understood the concept other than saving weight. Seems to me what you lose in durability and longevity wouldn't be worth the trade off though.

Its cracked by the steering box anyway, I'll strip all the good stuff off of it and then take the frame to the scrap yard, its like 3/4 of an inch thick so it should bring some good money

Weight and no rust but it wasn't worth it for a truck frame and I don't know of any company that still offers them. Heard KW would still build one as a few years ago but you had to give them a VIN of a current working truck with the same setup before they would consider it. Probably changed by now, however when I ordered a W9 in 2006 they would still build you a K100 but you had to order 2 and they had to be paid in full before work began. They were built by hand off the line. IMO anyone that wants a new COE needs kicked in the nuts and given a ticket for being outdated.

Truckers, lets see your rigs!

On our way to the pull this morning on the highway, and I was lolly gaging waiting for my dad to catch up and I go by a NY State Trooper. I'm watching in my mirror and he pulls out. Comes right up next to me and I think he's going by me. Nope, slows down behind me and throws his lights on. I'm thinking oh great just what I need. I have don't have a CDL (driving a historical tractor), hasn't been inspected this year and I have tires that are barley legal.

He jumps up on the step and says, "Not gonna lie driver, I just pulled you over to check your truck out, your not in trouble."

He was all jacked up about mine and then when my dad rolled up behind us he was even more excited. He was all jacked up about pulling them, too!

Depends on your definition of longevity, most of these trucks are 30+ years old and the people that ordered them only planned on running them for 5 years or so. I know of quite a few guys running 30 year old aluminum frame log trucks that aren't cracked and there isn't much that's tougher on a truck than logging roads.

I really don't see an advantage to them, but I agree, logging roads are absolute hell on trucks, almost as much as oilfield roads.

Depends on what you're doing, my stuff pays by the ton. Let's say it's 500 lbs difference alum to steel, my nevada runs pay about $70/ton for 2 days so that 500 lbs is $8.75/day and works out to around $13000 in 5 years. On a fuel truck or similar that works constantly it'd be a lot more. I think we'll be seeing aluminum frames make a comeback with all the new fuel mileage rules.

I wonder how much lighter a 3/4" thick aluminum frame could really be than a 3/8" thick steel frame.

3-400lbs is what I've heard. Pete used 5/16 steel rails that were pretty light too but they tend to bend

Interesting, my truck is double framed from the cab back so I'm not even in the "light frame" category haha
