Tough job, nicely done. Waiting for the creative part. I think it gives a lot of satisfaction to finally get some use out of things you have been storing for a long time.

Smitty, After careful review of your maintance program I think you need to stop fixing oil leaks. Buy the cheapest oil that Wal-mart has and let'em leak. This pratice will piss off the greenies, control dust, make the roads slick as owl *censored* when it rains and after all that oil has driped,sprayed and slated all over the place it will have rust proofed you cars and you be money ahead, less new parts. Less money spent on band-aids and crying towels. More money for drinking! It's a win win deal!!!

I agree, but this wasn't a small oil leak. It was just as bad as the old engine burning a quart every 50 miles. That isn't economical no matter how cheap the oil is. Running Amsoil, it's TOTALLY unacceptable at $7+ a quart (my cost).

The truck is looking good Fred! I like it :D . Removable side fences are next?

Smitty, Honestly Bro, I think you should get a director and video some of the repair jobs and become the You-Tube sensation that we all know you are! Could be the next Larry the Cable Guy! :lol: Always make me chuckle. 8-)

Now that wouldn't be very family friendly entertainment. Lots of inappropriate language, flying tools, parts, and an occasional kick to a body panel. :D

It wouldn't come off as funny anyway. I'm too intense. :| Especially when working on a crappy design. ;)

Update---I did not like the 2X's on the outside of the 4X4's--brought it out to far, soooo, I fixed it. I'm happier--next step will be to put 1X12's as side boards going to the bottom of 4X4's and making a 6" lip above the bed lumber--that will be it till spring--hell, it's not like I'm hauling firewood. Those 6"'s will keep anything from sliding out--come spring, who knows what I'll do w/ the sides. I get more creative in warmer weather. toothy

What's up with that white *censored* falling from the sky, Fred? Hope that's not headed this way! :P

Looks good. I agree - leave it flat - the hell with the sides. ;)

PE, back in the day I woulda went that route--those 2 1X12 bds in the center hanging over are going to be the sides--enough to keep feed bags & shavings from sliding off. AND--the little overhang over the lights is just a little protection--All the flat bed boards are white birch---well, almost all of them--2 center ones are SOMETHING :clap: toothy
