Gmerrill0516 Posted October 28, 2013 Share Posted October 28, 2013 Ok, I've got the B-815SX and I want to make it a tractor as I never did want a dump truck. I see many different set ups for height of the fifth wheel. I see pictures of them spaced up 4-6 inches. I am also wondering how to set the fender heights. I want to buy or make a set that looks like the front fenders. They would cover both sets of rears and have angled then vertical ends...no rounded ones. So how high do you set the fenders up from the wheels and how high do you set the fifth wheel so it all works. I may eventually haul some stuff but I have no way to see what the road bumps and weight to squat the suspension will do. The rears are something like 65,000# units so I don't expect a bunch of squat but have to allow for something right?I may bring a tape measure to the next truck show but figured this is a good question for the masses on BMT. If there are any good rules of thumb, I'd appreciate them.Thanks for the help.Greg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
