    Jeff -- seeing that first pic brings up a question -- do you ever have any problem with things getting jammed up between drawers, preventing them from closing, or worse yet, pushing something off behind the drawers? My last truckbed had a full set of drawers midships, had this problem all the time, is there a solution???
    A lot of the rigs I've seen around here over the years, the welders seem to think "hand tools" and "shovels" are beneath them, all they wanna do is weld. I like seeing the rig and the operator prepared for whatever might come up, able to do a complete job.
    The older I get, the more important ladders become. The joints just ain't what they used to be . . .

    So what do you put on the tops of the racks, anything?

    I was thinking along the same lines when I saw the shovel. No truck is complete without one. Even if it's just for getting the truck itself out of a hole.

    Yes, it does happen. No I don't have a solution, other than being careful what you put in them as some stuff tends to stack up.
    I built the drawers in the first pic and they fit tight together, so that helps a little. the snapon box in the other pic is 20 years old, and has been very good to me.

    Hmmmmm, I've got pictures of Lucy on every other welding website, might as well add them here.

    Lucy (redhead with an attitude) is 2003 C5500. She came rigged out for roll off wrecker body upfit. That means she came with all the bells and whistles and a long wheelbase.

    Probably the most unique thing about my bed is how I carry the oxygen and acetylene bottles.

    I carry two oxygen bottles horizontally under the Trailblazer. They're on ball bearing trays. I got them off of surplus telco bed. I drag out the tray, stand up the bottle, lift it six inches, set it down, end of story.
