    Default Rear facing jump seats

    Any idea when the first rear facing jump seats first started being used?

    Probably when they first started building apparatus with seats in a canopy cab or the 4 or 5 man cab designed. I know Mack had them in 1958!!!

    Yes they did and so did the 700 series in the 1940's. The 1941 Model JO did as I was just looking at a pic of one.

    Thanks Box!!

    I swiped them from http://www.alfowners.org, seems to be an association of private owners.

    I grabbed these trucks based on their age, but a lot of the rigs there are in really great restored condition and are beautiful to behold.

    Oh you did eh? That is a copy write violation pal! If you ever see any of my posting of apparatus, I hope that you will not “swipe” any of them as if you do, you are going to be prosecuted to the fullest extent!

    If I was you and I am glad that I am not, I would edit that post and remove the photos.

    Or hyperlink the photos directly, and give credit to the original photographer...

    It isn't like you're trying to profit from their use, but a lot of these photographers do like getting credit for their work.

    All right, I defer to the Captain. I edited my posts.

    'Tis worth noting, however, that I did not deprive profit from anyone, nor gain any of my own, nor claim them as my own work. They're just pictures of fire trucks taken by their proud owners, and when asked I freely divulged where they came from.

    Being cyber-security conscious, I generally don't like to follow links to other websites I am not familiar with. I guess I translate that personal preference into bringing stuff right to here instead of forcing folks to go somewhere else.

    Nonetheless, no argument, it was an official copyright violation. I'm guilty as charged.
