I think just the driver side is on a side hill, and the frame is keeping it rigid.I took that pic.The owner of that loader truck used to load that thing as heavy as a long logger. There is stories of him not being able to turn corners without a few tries because the front wheels were nearly in the air. He did his best hauling on the weekends.

Did you do anything with that twin steer you bought a few years ago?
Shorten the frame to get the wheelbase down to 206 and that's about it. Found out that it had a stuck valve which broke a rocker stand so it's just been sitting since. I need to do something with it though as I would like to build a line spool truck out of it.
