    <font color="green"> Sweet, never seen one of those things! Pretty wild articulation for a vehicle from the 50s. </font color>

    THAT WOULD BE MY GUESS. RUN THE REAR DRIVE SHAFT FROM THE VERY BACK OF THE CAB AND IT SHOULDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEM. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    a few years ago there was one in 4wheel and off-road or fourwheeler, a chevy that had the frame cut with a coupling in the middle to allow it to articulate, don't know if i still have that issue

    It is a fairly simple principle. The fram front and rear is shaped like a wishbone and there is a pipe within a pipe at the junction. The driveline goes through the center of the pipe. Log skidders are set up like that as well. Problem is it would be weight prohibitive to build as a full size wheeler.
