i am havin a delima
i have been thinkng about turning my pulling truck into a flip up body
but the issue is my shop only has 8ft walls so i wont be able to flip it up in the shop
but it will be eassy acces at the pulls to get to everything

my other idea is to make the clip flip like a semi
that will work in my shop
as of now i have it so i can take the clip off very easy
but i am going to paint the truck this winter so i dont wanna ding it up
since i take it off after every pull to inspect and check it all out

maybe i can get some input from ya all
thanxs

I seen a 78 mud truck with the front clip flip forward and it was a great idea, I thought about doing mine, but I have trouble finding someone to help me remove the hood when I remove the engine, so I would hate to get caught needing help to remove the front clip. :roll:

Ditto on tilt front, much lighter, as you don't need a subframe for cab and box. Once you get the driveline figured out, you aren't going to be under there that much any ways. The motor and the clutch need to be readily accessible tho! And you can work on the truck in a low ceiling shop or an enclosed trailer!

I plan on swapping bodies to a 94 this winter and I'm going to do the tilt
front clip. But another option I have seen is attaching every thing to the
hood and having it all open like the hood. Just another option. :)

You will never regret putting a tilt front on your truck. Mine is like Dan's you take out two pins and it comes off. I left my hood so that it opens normal too.
