      Here's pictures of my rig. #3 picture is of my arm I use for pipelining, #4 picture is of my tool boxes pulled out from the truck which frees up alot of storage for extra fuel, chop saw, rod oven, 10 big pipestands and 6 little stands extra cable, hose etc etc. I also have storage in between the oxy bottles and welder, in there I keep different ground clamps, besse clamps, pin bars, grinder holders for pipe stands and a bunch of other nick nacks. The old boys told me I couldnt turn a short box into a welding truck well I did and it works fine for me!

        Nice rig Dan. I honestly didn't think a guy could fit all that gear in a short box either, but you apparently make 'er work. I like how your tool boxes roll out like that, I had to look twice at that last pic
        I also really like the flag
        GO FLAMES GO!!!!!!!!!! Need to get back to the 'dome and start winning again ASAP!

            Dan, real nice truck you have there. I like it and you managed to get it to work well together.

            What do you guys feel it is that you like best about running your own rigs?

            Hey Wade, say hi to your dad for me, good to run into another TD member. I'm not up on first gens at all, but I have a soft spot for them. Does this tend to happen when the air temp outside is below +10*C? Commonly the grid heaters will kick on and being that each one draws 80amps its normal for the charging gauge to take a nose dive and the lights to dim. If the air entering the intake is cold enough it will cycle the grid heaters on even with a warm engine. My 95 was the same way, and my '08 still does it, dives to about 9-10 volts on the gauge and if you are watching you can see the gauge cluster and headlights dim a bit too. Come summer time they never come on unless its a real cool morning.

              Right on Dan! I've seen a few short boxes rigged out and it works good for them too. I like those stickers on your cabinets and where can a guy get some. And another DeWalt man, that's about all I run, right down to the impact gun I carry. And Stephan, what in the heck are you doing up at 3 in the morning???

                Looks good Dan!

                Yeah we run Dewalt here at the shop and they stand up pretty well. I picked up a couple of Makitas for my truck since I all ready had one so I figured I might as well keep them the same. They are comparable models but the Dewalts seem to have a little more juice.

                  Quite honestly, looking over all the job boards, looking for big projects going in and sending out resumes to those companies, etc. I go to sleep when the eyes won't stay open anymore. Things are pretty tough out on the left coast at the moment. Some guys here are doing well, power to them, their niche or market is paying out. Others have already lost everything as our trades died down in Nov 08 and here its March already. I wish we had our lumber industry back. 5 years ago it was one of the most fundamental resources we had and now I'd be surprised if its even running at 10% of capacity.

                          I just got an interesting email from Jeb .... as you all probably know, he can't post here anymore. Well, he took the plunge!!! Got his HH125EZ, got himself fixed up with some tools and extension cords, and he's IN BUSINESS!!!! Even found a blue plastic Miller case to carry the welder and a few tools in.

                          He says, it's kind of surprising, how much work he's picked up in only two weeks. As you can see, he just finished a job here, he took this pic out at a jobsite, just a quick picture after packing up, ready to go to the next job. Everything fits very nicely in here, and he says there's room to spare for more tools. He sees no reason to get a huge gas-guzzling truck, and that HH125EZ is the cat's meow. "I'm having a blast, and this is the easiest money I've ever made" I think were his words.

                          Oh, yeah ... he wanted me to mention, for the guys that helped before, THANK YOU!! As far as the guys that were mean and didn't help ........

                          Jeb hopes to be able to come back here someday and help some of the other young guys and gals with advice and experience, just like he got from some members here.
