          When my buddy is done with his truck He will probably have around $24,000 into it,instead of having 96,000 miles his has 10,000 miles.

          The white truck is nice however.

          The one thing I did on the truck I built that I dont see on other pipe rigs, Is to have the rear work plate extend 2-1/2" over which lets a guy clamp stuff down when working off the back of the truck.

          I've noticed that many of the pipe rigs have a dove tail on the rear that takes away the ability to work off the rear, Why is this.

          Even if you use it for nothing more that setting your beer on at the end of the day.

          JTMcC, Im sure youll have a good reason for this

          Im going to assume that its to let the cables spool on and off easier.

            I'm not sure I even know what you're talking about?
            You might have to give me a better description.

                JT & J Hall,

                When I put the 3/16" plate down on the deck of the truck, I let it stick over the back 2-1/2" instead of cutting it flush at the back.

                Letting it over hang past the back side of the truck 2-1/2" lets you clamp stuff down when grinding at the back.

                I hope this clarifies things.

                My friend started mounting things down on the truck today, no more working out of a pick up truck.

                Hes going to work the new truck around here before he heads to the mainline.

                    I can't remember the last time I worked on something on the back of my truck (except for my personal junk like a starter, ect, I do that all the time).
                    Most welds we make are on site and in position (on material way too big to put on the truck), fab work is usually done on skids or in jacks with a sideboom, crane or forklift. Or on a table or on my material trailer (which we use for a big table) if it's structural junk.

                    Anyway thanks, it's purely an amature website, we use it mainly like you would a printed brochure, just to give a little more info to people we have already contacted in person.

                      • J hall, Thats exactly what Im talking about.

                        Not only do I work off the back of my truck on a regular basis, I went one step further and put an electrical outlet on the back to plug my grinders into so I dont have to trip over extension chords.

                        JT, We all customize our trucks for our specific needs Im just trying to share info that might be handy for your next truck.

                        JT, Your truck would be useless to me because you forgot to put a crane on your truck, While at the same time you would hate mine because it gets stuck in the slightest amount of mudd.

                        My next rig will be 4W Drive

                        • Don't get me wrong, I'm not commenting on anybody else or their truck. I'm just explaining that the things we weld on are way too big to put on the back of a truck bed.
                          And the cranes we use are too.
                          So I don't need workspace on my truck, cept to work on my remote, maybe put a carb kit in my old marvel shnebler, that sort of stuff.

                          Happy '08

                            • cwagner:
                              Do you biuld the sliding platform that the welder sits on or do you buy them? If you build them can you post some pictures of it and what type of rollers that you use. All these rigs look good.

                              Thanks

                                Nice rig. What do you use the outrigger/jacks for and how did you weld (joint types) the tubes to the bed?

                                Happy New Year
