    Truck looks great, Now your at a new level, As far as being able to load things onto your trailer to bring back to the shop, Erecting steel, Using the boom to hold your suitcase feeder where you need it etc.

    Any way, Congradulations on your build.

    Default since your plumbed...

    Now its time for a hydraulic air compressor! Also no worries on the oil overheating, a service truck crane is not non stop operation, , and is an open center hydraulic system, so it simply returns to tank when the crane is in idle postion...ie pto engaged pump turning. Also i would recommend running the truck at 1200 rpms or so, if you run a 7.3 or 6.0 injectors live much longer when they are being cooled properly.

    I personally like the gas powered ingersorand compressor so that I dont have to have my truck running for hours at a time, My compressor will run for a good 4-5 hrs on 1 gallon, I dont think my truck will do that, not to mention the extra wear on the expensive diesel engine.
