    I sloped it so the whole skid would be around the same height. I did not want anything sticking up taller than the cab either.

    Thanks
    Painting the welder will likely kill the resale value of the machine, but if that is not a concern the have at it.

    Now I understand about the oxygen bottle, I was thinking about it being laid completely down as opposed to standing straight up. I agree, I don't like having the valve on the oxygen bottle as the highest thing on the truck either.

    Yeah. It will prob never be sold, it will just get moved to the older rig.

    The bottle is also sloped to clear the tailgate.

    Haha I'll keep that in mind.

    I do everything from heavy equipment repairs (Farmers, Construction business, etc) to steel building to fencing. Pretty much anything people call for. I don't do any oil field or pipeline, if I did I would not have a bobcat. I did think about going in to oil field, but it has slowed down so much here I just kept doing my own deal.

    My bad. I just now realized you have a website that probably would tell me would kind of work you do.
