      I'm scheduling a maintenance window tonight starting at 9PM Pacific Daylight time. Might be down for a while, so you west coasters should plan on building something tonight.

Some really nice pictures.  I have plans for a puller, but am uncertain of how the rear axles are attached to the chassis - are they solid mounted or is there some sort of suspension?  Anyway, thanks for sharing these photos.

The rear end is mounted solid with square tube without any suspension and the axles are either from an old big rig or tractor rear end.

I kind of thought that may be the answer.  Thanks for verifying that for me.

I have seen the Tractor Pulls on TV sometimes. I have a fairly limited knowledge or understanding of the rules. Most of it you can get the idea by watching. I'm always impressed with what these rigs a capable of doing.
