Hey Perry,

How did you get on with re-cutting the second cab?

If I go ahead with the tail lift as well as the Moffett, then the tail lift would be detachable, just as the Moffett is. I'd only have one on at a time though

With the tail lift: I would have small cages on casters, but they would just be static. I'm still thinking of a way to open and close the rear doors by remote, that would some how be incorporated into the tail lift mechanism when its not being used (if that makes any sence?). Also, the actual tail lift itself, would raise and lower via a winch 7 cable/ thin thread.

Where as with the moffett.... after manually opening the side doors on the left or right side, the moffett would self-lower, move round and unload/load the crates.

It is just an idea & ill still need to work on it more....
