Yes sir!! I have a 91 w900l, was a original tandem truck, then turned into a wrecker, 336 wheel base, the guy that double framed it didn't us the right inner frame rail, it wasn't tight into the outside rail, its all rusted and bowed real bad, and heavy too, I bought it with 580,000 miles, wrecker body and all that pulled off, she's got 680,000 on it right now, I would like to replace the wiring from fire wall out and also have the rails and cross members, fuel tank supports powder coated.
