    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?

    It looks like the quick disconnects on your torch hose are a little beefier than what I’ve seen at my LWS. I’m thinking about switching my torch/shield gas hoses to quick disconnect, where did you get yours? And more importantly, are you happy with them?
    Thanks. I did not paint the toolboxes, they came powder coated black. Yeah I want to get black wheels, I think it will look good.

    I'm not sure of the brand of the quick conn. I just buy them at the LWS. I love them, I've had a number of sets and beat the crap out of them and never have a problem.

    Yeah its a F250. It runs great, the truck is stock too but for exhaust. There is around 3k lbs in the bed. I've pulled a 14k trailer with the skid/welder still in the truck; Pulled it down the turnpike 70mph just fine. I do have load assist bags which help handling. Head studs and egr delete are next on the mod list for the truck.
