Dan,
Thanks for posting the pictures for those of us that can't be there. You don't get a feel for the scale of the project until you've stood next to the rear wheels. Great project. I hope it will be home by next weekend?

Dave and Dan you did an amazing job on the Titan. Knowing what you started with it was a big project to do. You were the only one that had the parts to do it. Thanks for the pictures.

Here's the load we brought back from Canada in 1998. The 45 Titan Air Start Cab is apart on the trailer along with the water tank and the platform.

Two Mogul tractor wheels, Titan extension rims and 12-25 Mogul tractor wheels are on the truck. This wasn't the last time we hauled wheels like that in the back of our 1977 Chevy Truck.

Here's a few photos of getting the cab out of the shed since we put it there in the late 90's. These were taken in 2012.
