My 1969 DM800 has these on the rear and "flat" GM style 8 spokes on the steer. Are they Mack CL350 wheels? Were they an option on my DM? Never saw them before. Paul

Haven't used it yet. I'm still sorting out electrical issues and replacing broken cab mounts. The /fifth wheel is gone and a Garwood winch and gin pole are going on. Near as I can tell the cab was replaced so that is why the tag specs don't gibe.The heavier units are actuall a plus. Paul

I used to run a 69 DM800 with 65k rears what a beast. I saw it 2 years ago still running at the quarry I worked at years ago. yours looks like a walking beam, mine was a camelback.

I ran a dm800 with those same rears and a rogers lowbed moving heavy equipment. the truck had an 865 v8 and a six speed. loaded or empty 65mph up hill or down. Rode like a baby carriage with those walking beams. Held the road great with 12X24 michelin xzys. I miss the 80's.It was an old Gotham sand and stone truck from ny!
