chassis build advice on axle stands


Recommended Posts

don't go below a minimum of 2 tonnes rating as you'll be adding wieght during the build

If you intend to build an 8-ton truck :)

If you're building a complete vehicle, you only need 1-ton stands. 4 of them on each corner will safeley hold a vehicle weighing 4-tons. If you are repairing a chassis, then bear in mind that if you cut out a lot of rot, then the chassis will deform under it's own weight (I made that mistake once).
