Those are some good points, if your looking for rockwells, I know where there are two deuce and a halfs, and I think one is getting parted out. They are in middleboro ma, Idk where you are out of. I think theyonly want like 2500 for the whole truck.

I had a leaky wheel cylinder, so today i got the superior up on jack stand with the help of the front end loader. i got the drivers side all torn apart but i have to wait till at least monday to get the wheel seal and wheel cylinders in, i think (depending on prices) since i have it up anyway i will do over the other side too. It is deffinitly a pain to get the thing up in the air and pull both wheels off.

I like your "jack"! Unfortunately, a deuce axle has a center input, so oil pan clearance is an issue if you don't want to go tall. The F106 has a side input, but so far I've only found one locally and its not for sale.

Does yours use 6 lug budd wheels? Mine has 8 lugs.

mine actually has a big giant 5 lug, it has aluminum 19.5 alcoa's on the back. it uses the two peice stud which is reversed thread on the drivers side. I think its a dana 70, i dont think they made the 80's till later on. the only other thing i have ever seen with this bolt patern is an old brush breaker chassis that is at my buddys cranberry bog, would be a hot set up for what you are doing tho has both axles and a divorced transfer case.

I finally got the donor vehicle for my Superior, a '94 Dodge cab and chassis built for snowplowing. The option list had every heavy duty part checked off, so I think it'll do the job. Next the 440 is coming out and a fuel injected 5.9 Magnum V-8 with 4 speed OD tranny is going in.

One question, my overhead bunk doesn't have any cushions at all. Could anyone send me the size and thickness of the one that's supposed to fit?

Thanks, James

front bunk

My bunk pad is worn out but here are the dimensions. It is two piece because my bunk partially folds. 72" long 2" thick (uncomfortable) one pad is 16" wide and the other one is 21" wide. The cover is attached together on the top to allow the folding
Hope this helps
Steve

Gas mileage

We have a 73 with a Chrysler 440. Only 20k miles. Working on road worthiness over last year. Belts, hoses, carburetor work, muffler, tires, brakes, shocks. First road trip other than to nearby lake and tailgaiting last week. 3 miles/gallon. Wondering if Steve or others have similar number. Runs pretty smoothly but has hard time getting above 65-70. Pretty disappointing (and expensive). Before we embarked on treatment, wanted to find out what we should expect.

Mine is a real gas hog also...more like 6 mpg. I am at 6500 feet above sea level and have trouble getting above 65 mph. I decided to just use back roads as I get run over on the freeway. My next item would be to have the transmission gone thru...I wonder if there is some slippage...lock up torque converter? I do enjoy it when we are parked, and the back roads are more scenic.

Thx for reply. Sounds like we still have something going on but maybe not as far off as I thought. I'll keep you posted. Thought about tranny but will wait to see just how much road time we want to put in it.

Steve: Thanks for the info on the bed size. I might try for a little thicker padding!

Also, I'm working on finishing up installing my new drivetrain, so I will have a lock up converter and overdrive. Granted, it will also have a fuel injected 5.9 magnum V-8, but the power output should be similar to the old 440. I'm hoping to hit 9mpg, but will post my results.

Finally, I saw a Superior for sale in Ruidoso, NM over Memorial day weekend. It was at a small RV dealer lot (had about 6 rv's for sale). The price on the window was $1750. It looked like it might have been a 2500, but I didn't stop. If I did stop and look at it, I might have ended up with two of them...
