Re: R140

Thanks guys! I heard that the front sheet metal on the 140 series is all its own, but measuring it seems to match my 180. Any ideas?

Re: R140

maybe different attachment points? If it measures out, go for it, maybe, especially if sheet metal is scarce as hens teeth. Just my thoughts

Right! it's still my buddies truck and I haven't talked him out of it however I'm going to Kansas to buy a whole parts body for my dump truck so I will have some pieces left over that he might could use

Re: R140

In the L-series, the only 140 offered was the milk truck. It used the 110-130 sheet metal.

The R-140 was a different animal. I'm pretty sure it used the 150-180 sheet metal.

Thanks. Seems to measure as such.
