Has any one built a Roadway tractor with the Jif-lok system where the rear tag axle and 5th wheel become the dolly between the pups and the second 5th wheel slides back into place over the live axle? Trying to get items together for the Road Boss to give it a try and only finding a few pictures.Posted Image

Ken

That's been on my to-do list for a few years now only I'd like to use the GMC General or the Chevy Bison.

There's a ROADWAY terminal down the street from me (Columbus,Ohio) I've been meaning to go there and ask somone in operations if I could get pictures of that set up. One of these years I'll do it.

Good Luck!

The GMC is not mine, it was built by Andre DeVires who is from the Netherlands. He is the moderator of the Dutch truck group on Yahoo. I am sure Scott is familar with has work, at least I think so :roll: .The fotki site that he maintains is loaded with reference material and is a good site to browse when you are looking for info. I thought you guys might enjoy the photos of the General when I saw that Scott mentioned doing one on a General or Bison. My Father first saw the pics over a year ago. Iam glad you liked them :lol:
