I wish you a lot of luck on finding one. My B8136 had one, and over the past 4 years I have yet to find one. the only person that I know that hashad one on a truck one is Ed Kaserman. His wife told me that he sold the truck a few years ago. I do have a print and an operations manual but absolutley no luck in finding one. You could get them eighter in an axle-mount or a mid-mount configuration.
