TSLB Damage


Recommended Posts

Be lurking around for sometime now and just bought a 2000 VNL 770.  Was setup as a toter when I bought it but have a few concerns.  The Hensley TSLB has obviously had had a king pin dropped on it.  Should I be concern?  I am more than likely going to have to rebuild or lengthen the bed to get our Smart on it so not concern about the cosmetic of the bend.  Also know from Hensley I can get the 2 covers for the air fittings that got crushed,    258207064_1108672419903716_1276408671829431749_n.jpg.f368f3e244945e6a6b1bdc563fe51789.jpg

JCGxZOyl.jpgIMO, the damage is on no concern.  I added a "drop hitch preventer" to mine.  Picture attached, I hope.

My time worrying would be spent on the lack of maintenance. That one looks almost ready for rebuild. Check all pivot points for slop and wear before using it. If it passes, then get some lube on it. The bent metal isn't really structural.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.
