• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

71' 800 CPT Crawler Lift Kit - Specs


New member

The PPO installed the CPT Crawler kit (awesome) (Dana 44 rear, 30 front. V8)

The PPO also bent the front of the frame (not awesome).

The passenger side front frame is 1.125" lower than the drivers side. Checked the diagonals and doesn't measure out to be out of whack.

I have the spec book for the 800 but it give the height of the front of the frame stock.

Anyone have the floor to top of the frame height on a 800 with the same specs as mine?


Looks to me like that new front cross member was not welded in properly and that is likely where the frame has twisted.

Pull the axle out, put stands under the frame sides and cut that cross member out and get a proper one welded back in.
