    My truck has 4'6" axle spacings, I've not had any issues with it.

    Thanks guys. I think I'll make the deal and grab it. Hopefully that'll happen on Monday or tuesday. Just gotta price out a few changes that I'd like to make.

    Ar. Permits
    Well guys I had a break down this week and was in Ar. with a permit ld.
    They only give you 3 days which normally is plenty of time. But due to Freightliner in Memphis dropping the ball on a parts order I lost 2 days
    Anyhow if you call Ar. they will give you a fax number to send a brief letter explaining the break down. Also include a copy of the permit and the work order on the trk. or trl.
    They then will give you a one day ext. on the permit. You must contact them before the permit expires, not after.
    The fee is 22.00 to get the ext.
    A whole lot better than having to buy a whole new permit
