For tipper sub-frames please refer to the following
guidelines:
• Design for full length continuous frame with
mountings for motor, pump unit, reservoir, pivot
points and ram.
• Use all mounting points on chassis frame to
mount sub-frame.
• Very stiff sub-frames may damage the chassis
frame by preventing its natural flexing, therefore
compliant mounts should be used, with up to
plus and minus 12mm compliance with the
vehicle laden or un-laden (whichever is worst
case). Compliant mounts should be rated with
a minimum of 2mm deflection per 200kg mass
at each chassis frame forward mount.
Compliant mounts shall have captive fail safe
bolts.
• Use two M10 grade 8.8 minimum bolts, washers
and self locking nuts at each solid and
compliant chassis frame location.
• Sub-frame must extend to the back of the cab
and attach to all mounting locations, with the
forward end designed to minimize local frame
stress. It is however, preferable to mount the
sub-frame onto the mounting brackets with a
clearance to the chassis frame top surface.
• Side tipping loads/forces must be resolved by
the sub-frame. It is not recommended to strain
the chassis frame.

5.1.6 Tank and Dry Bulk Carriers

Due to the high rigidity of tanks it is necessary to
isolate the tank and its sub-frame from the chassis
frame allowing the chassis frame to naturally flex.
Please refer to the following guidelines:
• Mount tank to full length of sub-frame.
• Mount sub-frame to all chassis frame mounting
points.

• The forward location mounts must be
compliant to allow relative chassis frame to
sub-frame deflections.
• Sub-frame must extend to the back of the cab
and not contact chassis frame at forward end
under worst case deflection.
• Compliant mounts should be used, with up to
plus and minus 12mm compliance with the
vehicle laden or un-laden (whichever is worst
case). Compliant mounts should be rated with
a minimum of 2mm deflection per 200kg mass
at each chassis frame forward mount.
Compliant mounts shall have captive fail safe
bolts.
• Use two M10 grade 8.8 minimum bolts, washers
and self lock nuts per chassis frame mount
bracket at each solid and compliant location.
5.1.7 Bull Bar (Vehicles with Special
Equipment Pack and where fitment
permitted by territory regulations).
The bull bar includes brackets which are mounting
points for driving lights, aerials, antennas and flags.
WARNINGS:
Follow all accessory manufacturer's
instructions when connecting accessories
and equipment to the vehicle.
After bullbar installation, contact your
Authorized Ford Dealer to correctly
calibrate the Adaptive Cruise Control
Radar Module (if equipped). This is
required to ensure correct operation of
the advanced safety features this vehicle
offers.
NOTE: Please refer to the electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC) section in this book before
installing any aerials.
