Default Time to rework Ole-Yeller.

Built this baby about 3 years ago,she's a articulated 6x6,w/a lift tailgate,& v-blade snow plow.

This is what she looks like now.













I really hate to take this thing apart,it is really a slick truck.But the only time I break this out is when it's snowing.

Might as well make it something I use year round.

So I guess an off rd dump here we come.

Down to the bones she goes.



This is what I'm thinkin.



Thanks for lookin!

FGD

Venom,I think if I put a socket on this servo,It would break lug nuts loose.
Had real problems at first w/supplying enough power to reciever to run this monster.Finally got the bec w/enough hair for the job. This is the servo.

You know it has some hair,when there's coolin finns on er.
This is how it used to be hooked up.

Had to totally change it around for dump box.So this is what I did.

Awhile back,I purchased a bunch of gear reduced motors,assumed they would have the balls for my screwdrives.Well they work for the 10"& 14" boxes & that's it.Been waiting for the right ones to show from Germany.
Well got sick of waiting so decided to freddy one for this build. This is what I did.


Now she should have the hair for this 18" box. I hope!
She fit perfect where it belongs.


Stuff,you ain't shyt-en it better be good.That was just what I was thinkin,before it went in to surgery. Also,I can't believe I'm rippin apart a truck that works & looks perfect.Even the tailgate worked perfect.
RCJB,that's the reason it's articulated,I have a rear axle in the front,so I could tuck the tires under it.
Guys! Thanks for the comments & complements! I'll try to not let you boys down w/the finished build.
For you guys that haven't seen this short vid of ole-yeller,here's what she used to do.

Thanks for lookin!

Thanks Guys!
Lossi,she don't flex at all.It;s make out of some high perf go fast plastic.
Cowboy,got a little done.
Made up a dog house for the motor,

Also mounted some nifty rotating lights & dual exhaust.


Then tore it down for paint. But before the booth,figured best make a drive shaft skid plate.


Here's a quick vid of the steering working for you gents that asked about it.

Thanks for lookin!
