Nice truck!

I always wanted to build a wrecker,but the boom and all the cables kind of scare me.

I don't know that much about them.

Keep it up!

Thanks, I mearly searched out as many photo's of the 1:1 counter part and was lucky enough to find a similar design wrecker in a scrapyard to which I was able to run the cables out by hand and see how it worked (the PTO was disengaged)

Cleared a few and have gone back tinkering.
