now the fun begins putting the thing together the way I want it.....
I went to bed last night visualizing how to make it work out good..

I am going to add some leafs to the back end to beef up the load to 14,000++ gvw right off the bat... ..

Also, I will post pics so you all can learn how to do this correctly.




its just my way of giving back...

I wish I had a side door like that. It would be perfect for a jetter!

For plumbing only, keep your tool box, solder kit, easy access stuff instead of d!cking around with that lift gate for the quick money jobs.

Nice truck, I sometimes wish I had a bigger truck but parking in many places would be a ightmare.

I am used to that lift gate and I have really missed it
today I had to lug up a one piece water softener up a ramp into my truck
and it liked to almost killed me..... I dont have a problem with setting it down
and putting a ladder next to the truck to get in and out.....

been doing that for years...


here is phase one of the build out for the new truck
3 heaters on the right with an scavenged rack from the old truck....
pvc pipe goes on the left side with bins eventually built above the pipe

the orange trash re=-cycle box in front will be full of 3 inch pvc fittings and stacked above that will be 2 inch and 1 1/2 pvc fittings.....

I put it on Face book market place for 2800 and I should have taken the first offer for 2000.... Then some tweaker came along and cut off the catalyitic converter and I ended up selling it to some black guys for $1400...

In hindsight I should have torn out more of the shelves but it was too hot and they were too well bolted into the truck ......

It was becoming a log wagon , still good for scrapping but not good for much else

worked my ass of on satruday and sunday getting this truck figured out.....
seems I have tweaked the space available as good as possible ,... maybe
I might add another 4 foot shelf and divide up that back section???
Thought about adding another shelf above the water heaters but I dont think its gonna be necessary......

I am Not gonna carry a lot of 3 inch PVC fittings except what might fit in that orange trash can..... gonna try to keep things lighter

I was lucky that the weather was around 70 degrees for both days

I remember playing with my erector set as a child that my parents gave me around 6 years old....... this reminded me a lot of doing that

Yea, those two guys got a good deal on my truck if they know how to just repair the brakes and a catalic converter.... they will probably just throw a pipe onto it ......here in Indy they dont inspect cars ,,,,

they went roaring down the road into the sunset..... sounded like a sherman tank heading down the street....

I hope the police did not pull them over for a noise violation....

not my problem any more....
