    not sure I posted any pics of the truck after lengthening it. made a huge difference in being able to carry 5x10 sheets from the yard, but killed the already terrible turning radius. had to cut down the steering stops to get it back to something decent.

    couple things have changed since the pictures





    and this was the new toy we picked up a couple months ago. already made the 5K i paid for it well worth it.

    I'll be. Haven't been around to see your rig, but I am back in town. I'll make some time to come see you soon. I'm building the bike right now. Looks nice with paint.

    I could get by with trailer these days, when working occasionally its fine, if I am on it daily I really want a dedicated truck in most cases.

    There are a couple avenues as far as a trailer unit.... open or closed. This is my unit that I set up to maintain a small footprint because of the areas I have to get into. Both my trucks are shortbeds & my unit is 5' X 8' so manuevering is quite easy & I get much better fuel economy than a single heavy rig. Initially, I laid out all the equipment in my shop to see how I could preserve area & maintain a full complement of needed tools/equip.. I like being able to just park it & use my trucks for other needs. Hope this may give you some thought to contemplate which would serve you best.

    Nice setup DPP, I sure could have used a truck like that a few times. I often had customers asking me to do mechanical repairs but without a truck like that and a hiab it just wasn't realistic most of the time.

    Step Van

    Weldwood1, with your experience with the box van, what do you think of a big heavy-duty step-van for the same work? The floor would be a good deal lower to begin with. If you added a lift-gate, it could be lowered halfway to make a good easy two steps to the box . . . at least until you pile too much stuff on it. And with a step-van you also have a right-side entry just behind the cab area. It's a litttle more complicated to mount the welder so as to not block off that right-side entry, but do-able.
    My last truck was a step van loved it, it just didnt have as good of drive train(working on it all the time) The new one came with a 5yr 300,000 mile warranty . here is a couple of picks of my last truck Click image for larger version
