Tony the frame and suspension I built today the wheels are the two extra wheels I made for the semi last week.
Just wanted to show how it would move up and down for those that hadn’t seen my mack truck build.
If everything comes out all right it will be a 6 wheel drive with 5 drive shafts.

I see the plans show one rear axle, so you’re adding a second? Pretty cool.

Just remember you’ll have to extend the bed (and not use the dimensions from the plans).

Hey Joe this ain’t my first rodeo. LOL

I got the idea about the dual axle rear end then went searching for Power Wagen ideas and found this.
And once I found that I came up with this.
So there’s no problems with things to go by to get er done.
Now that the frame and drive train are in place and have the wheels half way done, will be getting the cab and front in place then see what needs to be done to get the rear end set right.

That has always been one of my favorite sayings from way back when the world was you guessed it heavy duty.
