    454 Big Block in a truck sounds weird. But it's cool.

    Nice mod! I haven't downloaded 0.7 yet but I will after I give this suggestion-on the extended frame you could have the single cab so that there is more space between the trailer and cab, OK now I need to go get that update!

    Oh, right. A gooseneck would make sense too though.

    Howsit Monstergorille.
    LOVING this mod.. The things I can dooo LOL!

    The only issue I have, you cannot fit the regular cab on the extended frame (Extended Frame or Heavy Duty Extended Frame), only the extended cab fits. That's all I want, to fit the regular cab, on the extended frames.
    Besides, the mod is pretty much perfect!!

    Thanks

    Indeed, I read all your comments and I made a prototype Single cab with extended frame version. It relocate the attachement point forward, improving the weight distribution. Just need to polish few things in my next free time and I will post the update.
    Thank you the support !

    What an amazing mod. Great work!
    Would it be possible for you to add a counter-weight to the mod?
    My truck with a Cummins keeps popping wheelies on inclines with the tiniest amount of throttle when pulling heavier stuff.
    Sorry if there already is a counter-weight and I am too blind to see it.
    But again, amazing mod, love it.
    Keep up the good work!

    i agree with ragadir this is a awesome mod but adding counter weights to the front bumper will allow us to push the truck even harder especially with the 6.7 cummins mod the trucks like to do massive wellies and not turn very well the push bumper helps a little but its not heavy enough

    Indeed it could be nice. With the small cab and over the rear axel fifth wheel it's less prone to do wheelie but a counterweight would solve it completely. I already did one in the first version but didnt upload it because It missed a interesting 3d model to go with.
    I will release one soon for the next update.
    And thanks you for the good words, always nice.

    Found issue with file. 7.0 V8 is causing fatal issue.

    To the Below poster, my apologies to bumping the thread as I made the comment from the Mod download page. 5 months does not seem massive outdated but I'm new so I need to learn the proper forum rules for this forum, I will take that.
