I had a fire engine that was built that way. The body builder welded the subframe around the chassis members trapping the pump. We wound up cutting the back out of the cab to perform what should have been a simple 1 hour repair.


I learned a thing or two about contract specifications ... a a few new words.

……. axle housings … inspection & cleaning … a good way to see if moisture build-up is an issue with yours ….is to remove each axle shaft ...and shine a light down the spindle tube....to check for rust , etc. ….if so … removal of third member is best. found a shop vac hose fits snugly into axle tube bore. a long scraper, compressed air , while vacuum is on...works pretty well. don't forget the brakecleen to flush.....
