    Looks good. Did you put a hose swivel in the oxy/ace reel or do you have to un hook them to reel in and out?

      Thanks. No swivel, just using quick connects.

        NICE !!!
        Can't wait to see it finish.
        The old one was stolen? Did they get your equipment with it?
        I know it's a personal preference kinda thing, but it looks like you spilled some paint on your TrailBlazer.

            Yeah they got the whole rig, truck and all. Haha yeah. Do not like the look of the blue welder in my red truck. The paint did not come out well, so it will be getting blasted then powder coated.

              Your skid looks nice. Take some more pics when done.

                How do you lift it in & out or will it just go in & stay?

                  I am working on getting more pictures. I use the hook on top of the welder and 2 mounts on the rear of the skid.

                      Looks great. How did you secure it to the bed?

                          Why are you looking at his unit?
                          Couldn't resist that one.

                            Thanks. I use turn-buckles from the skid to the hooks on the bed.

                              That looks really nice. Nice paint job on the passenger side tool box. I thought you had four jack-stands in thereÖÖ then I realized I was a dumb A.

                              I see why you painted the TB black. The whole set-up looks sharp in your red truck.

                              It looks like the quick disconnects on your torch hose are a little beefier than what Iíve seen at my LWS. Iím thinking about switching my torch/shield gas hoses to quick disconnect, where did you get yours? And more importantly, are you happy with them?
