Very cool, Ed, and it's the right brand too. :D

Getting a little cramped over here...






Didn't do much with the '95 HD yet but I did swap the hood out and take the truck around the neighborhood a few times until the leaking radiator (fan damage from  wreck) sprayed slimy Dex-Cool all over the engine compartment, and the plug fell out of the alternator.  Minor setbacks.  Was worried at first when I pulled in and the engine was smoking all over, but at least I hadn't set it on fire with an oil leak, like I did on the '94!



The engine runs GREAT, front end is tight like they've put in some work on it, truck drives amazingly well.  Need to get the trans gone through right away before the 3rd gear synchro issue (minor so far) takes out everything else.  Those of you that have suffered through this on an NV4500 know exactly what I'm talking about.  As soon as I swap out the core support, radiator, etc. to make it drivable for more than a very short distance - I'm towing it over to my buddy Joe's transmission shop.

 Does your wrecker have the rpo 5t2? If so what is measurements of your rear axle?

Neither of those trucks did; they were both the regular (narrow) chassis cab rear end. 

There's a member here, 3500HD92647, the one selling the 6 point star Alcoa's in the For Sale section.  He's owned two trucks with the wide-track axle (RPO 5T2).  I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's roughly 8" wider to mimic a standard width non-chassis cab type rear axle.
