Just put a huge sign on the truck saying something like “hoisting for Jesus!” and you won’t get bothered.
I personally have no clue as to what you are asking about here (stab, type x, Es).No that’s part of the install with the saw. We are not going to shorten the frame though and plan to keep it extended as most TS are set up that way. I’m trying to make a decision to either put a stab or type x on, or another set of type Es are going on like the rear end. I can’t see why a Stab type x would be preferred over a larger footprint.
Stab type or type x is what you have on your truck and most trucks from bik come with twins up front.I personally have no clue as to what you are asking about here (stab, type x, Es).
As to the front bumper, I can think if at least 2 twin steer tree grapple trucks that don't have their bumper out like that. If there is nothing in that space, there is no need for it. My bumper is only half that far out, and it is somewhat a pain.
Unless you plan to mount the grapple saw there....
