William Davidson Posted September 29, 2019 Share Posted September 29, 2019 I was just told that the double frame on my '86 DM688S is rusted too bad to pass inspection. The truck is a log truck so the middle of the frame near the loader has been oiled by leaks from the loader and looks like new but the area from just in front of the axles to behind the axles is spread by rust pretty badly. I'm figuring that my best bet is to look for another truck to put my loader and bunks on however there are plenty of shorter trucks like dump trucks but not many as long as is needed for a log truck. I know that trucks are stretched and shortened all the time so the know how and frame material is out there, but is it practical to either replace the frame from the middle to the rear or graft in the rear half of another truck? The truck is shabby but the drivetrain and suspension etc seems pretty solid. Thanks for any advice. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
