    huge question for the guys who work on or drive these trucks
    i have to redue my rear lower panel. 080 plastic isnt thick enough.
    anyway , question is, if this truck had to pull a trailer, what would the trailer consist of? needing ideas
    i was going to attach a pintle and ring on the bumper with a electric/power output
    but need an idea that would be realistic

    here small up date

    the lower rear panel is remade. i went to a .125 thickness plastic. the 060 and 080 wasnt good enough. lesson learned
    i received in my tank , fit perfect. holds almost a gallon
    ive installed a electric output

    me and the wife took a vaction finally after 18 years and boy did we need that
    well im back and did alot of searching for ideas
    last time i posted i stated i had to remake the the lower rear panel due to not being strong enough
    any body doing this size of truck, .080 and .060 walls are not thick enough
    i had to remake with .125 and use bracing. for the center water tank compartment i bought rectangle tubing for making an interstructure.warping on something this size is your worse enemy
    have to say, im still learning everyday. for as i can see ,everything is ok now and i can move forward :D
    enginr comartment is on,rear lower panel is mounted, you can see ive added a working outlet and all rear wiring is done
    if anybody see a structure flaw ,please let me know

    today i started on the cab steps, i wanted to keep it the brush alum look. so i bought a very thin peice of alum
    i will top it off with a peice of diamond plate too
    there a door next to the step.for some reason they look chrome. so made it out of .040 styrene oshkosh t1500 fire rescue ARFF 1/12 scale and chrome decal oshkosh t1500 fire rescue ARFF 1/12 scale , added some screw
    the top front boxes is about ready for paint. im going to add a top lamp
    you really dont know how much detail is in one of these trucks untill you build one. wow

    time to put the top lights on the top the upper window, to hide the wiring i used 2 peice of hollow square tubing, then down the back of the cab i used a peice of shrink tubing. then ran the wiring out the bottom rear of the cab
