    Default Suggestions on building a Jib Crane for my truck

    I have a 1996 F800 truck and I would like to build a jib crane for the bed. I am looking for something that will lift at least 2000 lbs and I would like to attach an electric winch to it. Has anyone out there ever made one of these? Do any of you have any designs or suggestions? I would love to see some images. I have attached a image of the truck here. Thanks!

    Depending on your access to junk trucks you can get good stuff off old bucket trucks. I passed a truck on I-66 today set up like yours. Nice rig.

    Yes, nice. As good or better a knuckle boom.

    It's not quite 2Kip, and it's not an F800, but it's functional:
