    I'm picking it up next week. It's an 8ft. bed I need to put the welder on it and I'm looking for some inexpensive welding reels.

    Where I work we have one servcie truck that has an 8' foot bed. We set the welder in the middle with control panel facing to the rear. made hoooks for the welding cable. Does your new truck have bins on the outside? "service body" I'm assuming it does. Are you looking for reels for the welding cables or the torch hoses?

    I got the new rig all set up for you fellas to look at. I will be downloading some tomorrow. I ended up getting a leftover 06 GMC 3500 Service body, just installed the rack that I fabricated this past weekend, came out looking great.
