    It was pretty easy to build, just chop the frame rails about 3' in front of the cab. Cut the C frame on the horizontal sections, fold the frame in, and weld it up.

    Mine used to be a 3/4 Ton, so the springs are pretty beefy. Ive hauled 2 rockwell axles in it (around 1600 lbs), worked fine. It is a heavy beast by itself though, I'd guess around 1500 lbs.
