Make new bolt down tabs in the am . Then crimp & shrink wires and paint when time happens. Yes 6" gap between bed and cab but planned for equipment storage space .

And yes A$$ high cause its already got aftermarket HD replacement leaf springs in the back like new .

Had to ditch 1 long toolbox left side . Moved med size box from right to left . Then added water box for sealer brushes . Placed the cooler up front . And locked down the tank with room upfront for tar boxes for crack filler .

Got the bed locked down solid with 10 5/8" bolts and 4 1/2" bolts . Lights all work and just needed a solidstate electronic flasher for the led light hyperflashing .

Mount burned in for the LED warning light . Had to go higher to see over the sealer tank from rear . Nice buyers unit with lots of patterns . It was on the truck already .

Next was 2 grab handles and a ladder to get up on the bed . Rebar for handles and recycled steel for ladder . Added expanded metal strips for traction .

Then i finished out the tank pipes. Dump threw the bed so the 2" pipe wont hang over side and be a pain in our side as you walk past like other truck has . Just need to tweek the exhaust pipe and its done .

Then making a set of rails for the back out of the old beds rails .

250gal ICB tote mounted to a old genset trailer i got cheep last winter . It has a 3,500 lb rated torsion axle under it .

This will be my water wagon for down at the shop so i can make a batch of sealer faster than 45min with a garden hose .

Used a 2" fernco rubber coupler and a length of scrap galvanized 2" pipe and a 2.5" exhaust clamp to secure it down .

Hooked last night . Tested lights and brakes 1 last time .

Hit the road this morning to her appointment @ 9:30 am and she passed with flying colors and got her state issued and applied VIN# sticker .

We are in business with the equipment this year . Setting my self up for success and easy money with less hassle.

This weekend is looking like a 4hr each way road trip for a new / used piece of equipment to add to the arsenal of tools to do the best job possible.

My corner down at my buddys shop . Upper and lower level with roads to each . Gravity fill tanks now to save time . 250gal water tote trailer for bulk water . Old original trailer down below for bulk overflow storage if we need a tank dead empty .
