The prices shouldn't be that different between the the different truck brands as long as you are working with the same lenght and style of truck. Unless your dealer makes more profit off of one brand over another and wants to figure the difference into the cost of the body....???
I talked to Gabe. He was a great help.

Thanks again!

What is the cab to axle measurement on your truck? I was thinking about buying a longer truck so I can put a tool box between the cab and sng system.

We run a Stellar shuttle hook system on a 550. We are in the process of finding a 33k gvwr truck and putting a hook system on that as well. I would never not have a hook or SNG system again.
There are some pictures of it in this thread.

JSM- I believe the CA is 138" and the WB is 167". I wouldn't go much longer than that IMOP. IF you had the same length and wanted a tool box on it I would go with the 12" system instead of the 14" system.

It looks like I am going with the McCahan. I do have another question. Does anybody know the difference between an Model # 12-620-15-E and the Model # 12-620-15-E-PW?

Got me on that one??? I don't even see the -PW anywhere on their website. May be it has to do with the frame mount set up? Some trucks have a strait frame chassis where as others may have a drop frame chassis. Good question for Gabe or Russ.

It has been done. I have seen one traveling around in my area. I don't know who manufactured it but its not a SnG. Its a slick idea too but I would still prefer this type of system on a truck chassis.
