Iv got a 66ford 3/4 has been an on going project,,i just converted it into a Flat Bed,,i came up with an idea a few monthes ago and decided it would be handy to adapt my engine stand and my cherry picker to the reciever hitch,,when you think about it,its amazing the uses of a reciever hitch,,,,,
I think I saw a crane at Northern that went into the receiver hitch, and had two fold down legs for additional support. That seemed like a great alternative to a welded in place crane on the truck body.
There are times when I'd like to have a portable crane , but don't want one welded or bolted in the bed of my truck.
If you have the picture of your crane idea, I'd like to see it.
this is the same truck before i changed it into a flat bed,,its not a real good close up,,if you cant see the details how i attached it ,next time i have it on il snap another picture and send you a close up,,,,,,jim
