I know I could use this!
I found one of these a couple of weekends ago with no bed. I couldn't get a good pic by the time I went back it was dark. No one was home so I'll have to drive out there and see what is up with it.

This was referring to post #628 with the yellow dodge 1.5 or 2 ton drw dump truck.

Ewww.... steering knuckle broke? Broke loose? I damaged both on a '71 K/20 when it took off down the hill and through a barn wall (no spring on brake release and didn't quite grab). Both tires hit the posts at either end of that section of wall. Truck was still idling with lights on. I backed it up and headed up the lane for work... except I soon learned it would go anything but straight. Way toed out on both sides. The arms the tie rods mount to you could see had been bent straighter. Back then you could buy loaded knuckles from the dealership (ball-joints pressed in)

Cool find. Go check it out and let us know what you came up with when you get a chance. Hopefully with pictures.

Here's a neat little big IH dump

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Wouldn't that be handy. It's short, but heavier with bigger dump body that a light duty about same wheelbase. Tougher drivetrain for bigger snow, too. Even the flow frame is tucked up close. I'd own it!

Dig this '50 Reo Coleman conversion
