It should be a ladder frame type assembly. They are strong is kept loaded envenly. It was the off center dumping that would put them down in a hurry. Sticking grain was a big contibutor to this. Being stuck in a field loaded and yanked out by a tractor was another.no i want the frame for older ih truck that i want to build with a diesel motor in it just want the newer brakes and steering but my motor and trany is 2500 pounds it will be just a toy

Farmers abuse their equipment:roflol::roflol:. lets see..a 27500 gvw flat bed truck loaded at 32,000+......nevermind:shrugsreplacing one that's twisted or broken? Used to straighten a lot of wracked frames in those trucks. Too light for dump work but farmers sure used and abused them.
Nuthin wrong with a Detroit two cycle. I kinda like them myself with a set of ear plugs........yes i no i have a dodge dokota i had 2200 pounds on it
