This one isn't going to have an air stack Dan. I'm trying to replicate this design:

Made a little more progress. The wrecker boom is made and installed. It is larger diameter as well as longer than the AMT boom. The pulley is larger in diameter and has three pulley groves as well.

Thanks Jeff! Your wrecker inspired me to build a wrecker bed.

A small amount of progress. It's starting to look like a truck. I still have to mount the cab and make the shifter assembly, and a few other details too.

That looks excellent Brian! If I ever finish some of the many projects I have going, I have one of those L1000's sitting in wait for a donor chassis.
