WANTED, new or good used, truck boxes, 24"x24"x24"

27 March 2018 - 07:26 PM

Howdy All,


I want to mount under the deck on each side of the Peterbilt, a steel truck box.  From what I have been able to find on the net these things are priced like they are made out of gold.  Does anyone have or know where I can get a couple in good shape?  Thanks.



Where would I sell a commercial 5th wheel hitch?

Howdy All,


I have no need for the sliding commercial 5th wheel hitch on my Peterbilt, does anyone have any suggestions on how to sell it?  Thanks for any advise you can give.  I have no idea what brand this hitch is all I know it was in use when I bought the truck a couple of months ago.











Can I "copy" my first post in a thread into another thread?

Howdy All,


I need some help with wiring and have started a thread in the towing forum offering the job to someone if they want it, I would like to also post that request in the anything else automotive forum.  I have tried to copy-paste, I can't make it happen.  Is this possible, if so can someone let me know HOW to do it?  Thanks.



Want to hire someone to help install trailer wiring on my Peterbilt.

Howdy All,


I now have all the parts needed to install the RV trailer wiring and brake controller on my Pete. 


I want to install a "Hayes" air activated brake controller, this involves mounting the controller, splicing into an air line which goes to the "air application" gauge which is located in a dash panel that also has 15 other gauges in it along with three air activated switches.  The brake controller also has to be wired to power from the battery through a 20 amp circuit breaker.  I do NOT have the circuit breaker or the 12 gauge wire needed to do this part of the job. 


Here is a web site describing the "Hayes" controller.




To wire the RV 7 pin trailer connection I have a complete kit including a water proof box that has a circuit board in it that has all the wire positions clearly marked so it should be a plug and play operation but I don't have the proper wire striping and crimping tools to do a decent job. To wire the RV plug, a cable must be made that goes from the commercial truck plug to the box, I have ALL the parts needed to do this, then the 7 wire cable needs to be run from the box to the rear of the truck where it will be mounted off of the frame, again I have ALL the electrical parts needed to do this.  I would need some type of clamps to hold the 7 wire cable to the frame as it is strung from the box to the rear of the truck.


Here is a web site describing the "Jackalopee" box.




I can help with or do most of the grunt work, I need someone who knows wiring and how to hook into the trucks electrical system without burning something up, I am willing to pay reasonable money to have this done.  If your interested or know someone who may want to take on this task please contact me.  Thanks.
