  • Frame / Springs: 2r5 chassis dimensions

    I have been trying to find chassis dimensions especially a chassis diagram for my 49 2r5. It is not in the parts manual can anyone tell me if it is in the 2R shop manual before I purchase it? I have been surfing the web and haven't come up with anything. Thanks Lumpy

    I know very little about the trucks, but the car shop manuals have all the frame dimensions.

        All the truck shop manuals have both a diagram and a table of frame dimensions.

              So, I'm wondering, are you planning a chassis swap to something more modern?
              I'd be interested in seeing what you do.

                Not going to do a chassis swap, Iv'e never been a big fan of those. My plan at the moment is a Jag XJ6 front crossmember. I wanted the chassis dimensions to reference factory axle centerlines and squareness points. may post pics as it progresses.

                  This has helped me over the years when I had a question about truck dimensions.
