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.

What was the quote from pg Adams with the mounting holes?

I'm interested in getting new frame rails this year or next. Obviously PG Adams is way cheaper than Peterbilt. Any idea if there are any differences between the two? I'm sure PG Adams are just as good or better than Pete.

I'd like to have my holes pre-drilled but I'm also gonna be going with longer rails (230" to 250"). I wonder if they will adjust from the CAD drawings of my truck to accommodate the longer wheelbase or if I can only have the holes pre-drilled if I keep the rails exactly the same as they were from the factory?
