        Darmik: That is nice to see someone make a real bumper instead of the pressed tin crap that comes with some of the new vehicles. Nice job.

          That looks like an Altec pedastel in the front of the body????. Actually the body looks very similar to ours except ours are F550s. Now we're using the GM 5500. Good looking bumper, Don't worry it will get all bent up before long we fix those all the time.

              Don't know about Darmiks truck in the picture, but none of our small bucket trucks have hitches. just tow hooks,They usually are loaded to the max as it is

                you could always just scoot over to my shop and i could build you a custom hitch
                Very nice step by the way

                    Making of a rear step bumper. Done

                    You could put a hitch on but this truck came with a pintel type hitch I had to remove it to build this.for our customer base there is no dwgs no pics no ideas you dream it I'll build it.On this truck they did not want a hitch at all on the truck so with the spare pintel I made this pic # 495 it's to move trailers around the yard.However they did come with a hitch.And as for fix and repair; The stuff that I build "I" dont do made in china, If you want something that will out last your unborn children talk to me I'll help you through it or build it for you for the cost of material "I do love my job".

                        Pics

                        I'm not much of a computer guy but what I do is take the pic on a 144 floppy or a digital camera make a file folder in my computer call it out side photo's
                        down load to that file then go to where the icon button is and click on thumbnails you should be able to resize it there other than that you'll have to talk to one of the other guy's on here sorry but computers an I we have a hard time just trying to get a long this F%$#ing thing I had to get the wife to show me how to post pics and get through this reply to thread stuff.

                        im useing photosize.com I dont know anything about this program I just put my floppy disk in the drive and click on my computer go to A drive click on that and tada my pics apear.
