ozrad7 Posted April 4, 2010 Share Posted April 4, 2010 g,day all i have a 84 r688 tipper i use for hourly hire work and was wanting to know if the wheel base could be shortend.I need to either replace the body or repair it at witch time i would like to take about 400mm of each end to reduce the capacity as i dont see why i should cart 13m2 and get paid the same as the ud's i usually work with who can only take 10m2.I have looked at the rails and in front of the pedestals it looks like it is already drilled to accept all the bolt ons about a foot or so closer to the cab.Has anyone done this before because i would hate to get everything undone only to find the holes are 1/2 a inch out or something stupid like that.I realise i will need to shorten the centre drive shaft and brake lines ect. but it would be worth it to improve the turning circle and lower the tare weight , at the moment it tares off at 10860kg's.
