Talking

Over 30 plus years of working and running just about every kind of truck
Chevy,Dodge,Ford,GMC,
and 88 1 Ton Toyota pickup, which my Co, paid for me
now running a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500, started with a early 60's Ford van's
then every thing else they all had there good points and bad,
though the 70's mostly worked out of Fords 72's, 74's, & 79's stick shifts and
Automatics
and a 1975 Chevy short body 290 6 Cyl 3 speed in which I carried the most products in, a couple of 69 GMC, and Chevy van's which I owned

I bought a crew cab Nissan frontier for the family in 2011 and I love it. I looked around a bit at work vans and things, but i've been in a truck every day since I started plumbing, so I wasn't ready to make the jump into a van yet. Someday it will happen i'm sure. In the meantime I picked up the full size Nissan. The Titan gets pretty horrible fuel mileage, but it's a good looking truck.

I scored a rack today for it. Used @ $250 was quite a steal considering how long i've been trying to find one that will fit. Most of the guys selling these racks are 8 footers and the things are made for chevy or ford. Plus it beats the $600-$800 i'd pay for a brand new one.

Now I can REALLY go to work.

Next on the list is high side boxes.

Just went and signed the paperwork for the new truck. I should hopefully have it for the beginning of next week. They are just safetying it and fixing a few things on it that I requested they repair. So tomorrow I'm planning on getting started on building the shelves for it after I'm done my service calls. All in all I don't know how guys can stand to work out of pickup trucks. It has driven me crazy trying to find stuff that's buried on the bottom.

Here’s the rough prints for the design of shelves for the new truck. I’m designing it similar to how I had my step van when I worked for a decent sized company, tools on the passenger side and materials on the driver side. For now I’m building everything out of plywood and eventually once I get the truck fine tuned I’ll build shelves out of aluminum.
I got two of the shelves for the blue bins and one of the carry all’s shelves about 3/4 done. I need to cut two more pieces but it was too late out of respect for the neighbours. Not bad for 4 hours and no hydro.
Basically my plan is to make this truck box last me for at least 15 years. With the mileage and age of the truck I’ll be happy if I get 5 years out of it then I’ll hopefully be in a position to build a brand new chassis.

Stared a new job about two months ago. What do you think about the way I set up the van, Iím sure youíve never seen someone block the side cargo door with an additional shelf!

Looks like an organized mess. The shelf blocking the side door is not a bad idea but I'm 6'6" so I'm not crawling all the way back in that van. I can reach everything from the doors.

Thatís really dangerous to have heavy unsecured items in the cab. In an accident theyíll be flying and can do major bodily harm to you.

Not to chew your butt but to think safety...If you have an accident with your van and it causes bodily harm to others or an accident on the highway for example there will be a police investigation and the blame will be put on you. Jail and huge fines are a reality.


I also suggest you keep the cab closed off with thick or appropriate material. You don't want a 60 pound vise flying by your head and possibly killing you in a roll over. It happened to me, 2-3 barrel rolls while towing another truck in winter. The vise and other heavy metal objects literally crashed by my face in mid air. That was a lesson learned!
