I thought it was normal for cabs to rotate around the frame.
I know what it is but i thought it would be funny and you had to be all technical about it.
Sorry for not being 100% technical.

nope. i made it over.. then slid off into one of the poles i was between

as soon as i go home the story is changing to a tree



hopefully if i can get some stuff sold i can buy that van...
that'll be a huge jump in progress, get a job then get some ranger leaves < cheap... buy steering stuff <expensive, a sheet of 1/4" steel and make all the hangers, brackets, shock mounts and buy some shackles..
