    Taking that welding class has been a really good decision .....just this is saving me big $$$. Plus, I will know that I did it.

    OK, so finished everything but the 4in channel that is going into the frame rails today. MAN this joker is stout. I can carry it but definitely have to put my a$$ into it. welds are as pretty as I like but I was under a time crunch as this was my last day in the shop and was cutting metal for students as well. I was limited by what material was on hand and used about all of it. I am pretty happy.

    I bought a Suburban years ago and the first thing I did when I got it home was yank the stupid running boards off.

    Already looks much better without those "grampa" running boards.

    Hey, I take offense to that comment. I just bought a new F250 for my Vet truck and these damn things keep getting higher and higher. At 6' 2" I have to step up.... it's a real pain in the a$$. Why do they have to make them so high? When you are old... running boards are GOOD

    good luck to all

    The old steel DD or the newer Black Momba? The new style is so much nicer until it is cold out and they crack.

    It is a fixed steel with a rubber attachment/extension for the end. I put a pic up later.

    LOL. I was using my GI can lat one night, not too far from antlerradars house and the damn spout broke. I ended up making a makeshift funnel out of a diet coke bottle. I didn’t get all the gas into the tank, but I got enough in to limp into Sheridan.

    Back and the run was good. Decent power all the way, more comfy than the jeep or Big Blue. Bonus, averaged about 16.5 MPG Good start. I have a few pics I'll put up later.
