In Topic: BIG RIG DOLLIES

Tom, I have the doubles and it came with two dollies. As JT mentioned the mail truck as well, I believe it to be a single kit with the Ford C cab but have heard that they put a dolly in it as well. Moral of the story........ 1 trailer-1 dolly......2 trailers-2 dollies.  Happy hunting.   :D  :D

Gaute, that top one appears like a radiator is mounted behind the drivers wheel. The internet showed other pictures of a bunk down low and stated something about being mid-engined.

oh ok yeah your right about that...your setup looks very nice though

Thanks. The frame rails in front are from a second one I have (one is Chevy and one is GMC). It is laid there for comparison. The single axle is from the AMT LN8000 box van. I switched it to the tandem from this.

would you mind posting some pics to the titan thread in this section...im building one and my exhaust system is completely gone 

James, mine won't do you any good. I removed the DD and replaced it with the Freight Shaker Cummins and shortened the frame to drop an axle and pull the twin pups. It started with the DD going to the Shaker so I figured "Why not swap between the two."

Pulling two of these.

If you are going box stock, the Chevy and GMC are good. If you are trying to get it as close to accurate but as easy as possible, they have issues as well. I have determined that the cabs sit too high and the tires look inaccurate in the wheel wells. I am building one now and have shifted the hinge points and lowered the rear cab mounts with out any problems. Good luck.
