  1. That's a rusty truck,every thing is rusted,all the fittings brake cans ect,I would upgrade to a newer truck and right off the bat paint the hell out of the rails and follow up at least once a year,u must work in some harsh environment...good luck
  2. There's actually three rails in that picture,the frame that the trunnion stand bolts to is there,it looks like hell but if it's not cracked yet and u cleaned it up and painted the chit out of it and stoped further rust it might last a good while,the top/outside rail has plenty of meat left on it or it just might be a good time to upgrade to a newer truck if you don't trust it..
  3. Need a new drivers seat for my 96 Mack CL,have had a high back (the original seat hat came with the truck) but I think a low back would suit me just fine,ether way any recommendations for a decent seat,should I buy on line or r just see what my Mack dealer has?
  4. I thought the ch had a set forward axle That one looks like a set back like a cl?
  5. Does anyone have the part number for this switch,maybe I can source one one line instead of Mack and there crazy prices?
  6. Damn you beat me out with that one..lol
  7. Do you guys like seat belts,I don't..🤔😇

    RIP Dozer

    Sorry for your loss,I've been down that road a few times,it's not easy but the pain passes with time,good luck and do get another dog..
  9. I have an aluminum bed,the floor is gonna need attention,do all shoot work thinking the asphalt will slide out better,to often I have to raise the bed to high to my likening to get it to flow out the shoots.
  10. Any of you dump truckers that haul asphalt using a bed liner,what make,how to install and how do the work?
  11. There's no way the manufacturer gvwr on that truck is 80,000 lbs..
  12. You can't gross any more than your tires are rated for,also he talking about air ride...
  13. It's a 96,would it have one?
  14. My tachometer is whacked out,any one know where the sensor is located?
  15. Haha,that's a little to far from Long Island NY..lol
  16. Are you saying it's slipping on the splined shaft that comes out of the top of the steering box?
  17. Starting about ten years ago Kenworth was all the rage,in my opinion it was all about driver comfort and nothing else,now Mack makes a comparable cab as far as comfort goes and they seam to making a huge comeback around here n NY,most of the dump truck companies are buying Mack again,take a close look at ten or twelve year old Mack vs Kenworth,that should help u decide,my 23year old Mack cl factory dump still looks and drives amazin,I worked almost every day this year and not one break down that put it out of service try that with a kenworth new or old,not gonna happen..
  18. I've used roof flashing inside the cab,way cheaper than dynamat and the same effect,you can double layer it if you want,hit it with a heat gun or hair dryer,excellent sound deadening with no odors..
