Only When The Neighbors P$$$ me off!

Now that I've read both threads on this I'll have to say the workmanship looks good but the engineering is what I'd question. Just looks a little funky to me.
It Probably looks funky because it's built with a Chassis!
Sometimes you work with what you have, end of story.
It looks good to me, so if you had to crawl under it and it was on cinder blocks I may ? that....

Forward Gussets Would Block the 5' reach, But Rear Are In The Works. I Don't get under anything without blocks(railroad ties). Saw A lowrider kid get sqaushed @ age 14.
