Hey hello fellow builders, i dont know if i will finish in time but i will try,. For quite a while i´ve been wanting to make something like a towtruck, i know i am not the first and seeing all these awesome creations made by some of you guys i knew i didnt want to make another peterbilt or kenworth, but since i really do like US trucks i decided to go with this. The basic design for the chassis and cab is pretty much done. the location for the fueltanks isnt really logical for a towtruck and lots of kodiak´s and topkicks have the fueltank and sidesteps combined but i needed space for both the L/motors and gearing. As for the gearing, no gearbox only some reductions. The front axle has leafsprings and is only held by two pins, but its actually strong enough, also it will make it really easy to convert to a 6x4. The rear axle is perpendicular (right?) in two directions so it will move nicely over bumps and such. As for the crane and everything behind the cab, i am not sure yet. I also havent decided where to put the M-motor which will be used for the steering. Anyways, here's what i got so far. (srry for the crappy image quality) Cheers!
