    A lot of work, but kind of worth it.

    Default Skin!

    Welded it just at the corner of the square tubing and ground it down. Went through tons of wheel and sanding discs!!!!

    Lance Man you did an awsome job, I have built 6 welding rigs over the years 5 for myself and one for a friend of mine who is a pipe welder.

    So I am certainly someone who can appreciate the job you did.

    You are certainly a craftsman.

    The nice thing about a truck like yours is the instant respect you get from your customers when you can roll up and tell them you built your truck and that you will be working on their equipment.
    At that point they have all the faith in the world about your ability and will never second guess you.

    Its also nice having a custom built truck that suits your needs instead of having to make due with something close.

    Default Thanks to All!

    Listen,

    I had a idea and went with it. Like Miller says "Drean It, Weld It", so I did. In our awesome advanced world of America, we have the oppertunity to do anything! In my own home I did this, instead of spending $50K to $80K on a body, you can build it!! We are the greatest country in the world, because we have these choises and resources! Never forget how this country was forged! It was the minds of free men and we will never stop as long as we have our freedom!! Thank you to all our military and all our veterans! I salute you forever!

    We are America!

    It can make a lot of sense, like the man said, 50K for a body you can spend some time on it. It can be yours up front instead of the bank.

    It was 102 where I was working today. Imagine sitting an enclosed cab dozer with no A/C! It is inland and about 20 miles from the ocean. I cover San Bernadino and Riverside counties as well and it's hottttt! up there.
