Re: TT truck top speed

Bone stock we have been told some topped out at 25 mph. We have two three speed auxiliary trans and a two speed rear end and by the math we should be able to do 40-45. We don't have all of the shift assemblies made yet. The worm gears are available in two different tooth counts, one is higher speed ...

Re: Is this a TT ring gear?

No, but judging from the back side photo, looks like it would have had a slip assembly inside it. (slide one direction lock up the other)

I'm running 700 20's on mine. They have all sorts of options for 700's.

Two levers are made but have not been finished for outside the driver's side door. We added step length, the le...

Re: TT prices

We built our TT because you rarely see them at shows in Oregon. We went a different route than most in building a tow truck. The height issue is real. My TT needs 8'6" of clearance. The cab itself is about 7'10". I'm running 700 tires on the rear so that adds a little bit of height. If you plan on t...

Thanks, we have been working on it for the last 5 years. The fenders are still in primer, but we didn't want to wait for another summer to get it out. Should be able to finish it all the way this winter

Re: TT Rear Wheels

I think the pieces missing are the locking pieces that go where the holes are in the rim. You should also have the retention ring. I've attached a photo of our rebuilt wheels. The outer ring and lock ring are both in silver but you can see the split.

Rocky mountain brakes, has anyone used cable instead of rods?

Have a set of Rocky mountain brakes for a TT, but no rods. We can build rods, but we are playing with the idea of using cable instead. Not sure if anyone has given this a shot before and if they ran into any issues.

The tow truck is coming together. After some body work on the fenders it should be hitting the road. It's been 5 years in the making.
