    Congradulations on the crane, You wont be sorry.

    The only bad thing about your crane is that its 100' to short.

    Give me some crane specs:

    Make

    Capacity.

    Boom length

    Is it telescoping

    Is it full hydraulic or electric over hydraulic

    As far as out riggers, The bull dog 4" square tube have worked for me.

    You may need to add a leaf on which ever side you put the crane on.

    Default springs

    Depends on the chassis but normally only crane side recieves the helper spring. Also crane normally goes on the passenger side if your curious.

    F550 chassis have a lot of options. Might not need any springs. Also depends on the box on the truck. Normally only do the crane side. Also u will need to set the engine rpm to 1100 to 1400. Do u know the pto speed the pump needs? I have never seen that make. Hopefully it came with hydraulic outriggers. If not add them manual one suck.

    The outriggers are hydraulic up and down.But manual pull out.My 550 has the low deflection kit from the factory I specd it that way.

    When I bought my truck new it was just a cab and chassis so I had to put springs on it for that, on the driver side I have 11 leafs on the main and a helper pack which is 3.

    On the passenger - crane side I have 12 leafs on the main and a 3 pack on the helpers.

    Best of luck on the crane, Its a pain in the butt to build the hydraulic tank, all the piping, hoses and the PTO pump etc.
    But its all worth it when you get to use it.

    I have certain customers that hire me verses my competition just because I have the crane and they dont because I can move the heavy plates of parts around that have to be welded.

    So even though I dont get paid for the crane directly, I get the jobs because I do have the crane.
