  • Chromed out new welding truck pics

    I was looking for a kick butt screen saver. Any of you, not necessarily owners of rigs who dont wanna share there pictures on line but any one u seen some killer new welding rig trucks on the internet. Id prefer something all chromed up, not like a huge industrial flat bed but any make will do. Just something say from 2000 and up. Ive seen some beautiful rigs pass down the highway, mostly newer dodges but i wanted a pic so i can have something to oogle at when i boot up the p.c, im sure alot of u have stumbled across them on the web.

    Thanks guys

        I am just finishing up my new 6.7 welding rig, your more then welcome to pictures of it. Alls you can see on it is Dodge "Brillant Black Crystal Pearl" and chrome, infact the panels for my pipepro get chromed tomorrow. When Its all done I am going to post some new pictures, I managed to add even more pull out storage then my 03 had, I cant wait to get it shined up and on the road.

              Gallery 12 is in the works. Probably will be up tomorrow.
              I always loook at other guys rigs, I guess you could say my truck was made from 10+ rigs

              Coal you need to take some pictures of the inside of you boxes, I dont care if its neat and tidy I just need some new ideas for my new set up, i was also thinking about putting in some lights this time around Hey did you ever start growing electric lettuce? I still think if you run it off that grey machine they'd never know, with time you could own Miller I really think you should give it a think over just tell the wife its a new type of tea

                  Ya thats what I thought, your one of those sick MOFO's that has everything neat and tidy

                      Just as a suggestion Dan, look up Lynx Welding on this board and check out Shane's new dually setup with slide out toolboxes. It's definitely different and shows some thinking outside the box. Neat way to organize and transport the bevelers etc.

                        Ya thats a good set up, I've had my boxes slide out for years, here's a couple pictures of my old rig it was an 03 short box 1 ton cummins. I was trying to come up with a way that the boxes would push up instead of out but have not come up with a good way as of yet. I also thought of having everything slide out with a push of a button but when the cable gets all twisted its a real messreal hard to get on steady if you know what I mean.

                        Black Wolf how's GP, is it starting to pick up in your neck of the woods?
                        I was going to drive up this summer to buy a bunch of toys that the young
                        rig pigs lost due to no work, I heard there was lots to choose from

                          Dan,

                          First off, thanks for the pictures. I'll add them to my files for when I get around to building a skid for my truck.

                          I think quite a few guys starting out experienced some grief making ends meet here a while ago. Nice, new, and shiny doesn't pay the bills if there is no work. My Super Duty is coming up on 10 yrs old, and my Ranger 250 is a 2003 with over a 1000hrs but they still get the job done for what I need. Remember though, that I am primarily a shop welder, doing fabrication and repair welding, not a pipeliner like yourself, so I don't need my Ranger everyday. My shop job also ensures me steady work year 'round regardless of weather or local economy, so I can't complain. Work is work. It all makes money and pays the bills.

                          Things must be picking up here though for the pipeliners. I leave for work just after 6am and must see 15 or 20 welding rigs on my way across town. Most are leaving town South on Hghwy 40. A handful are heading East on Hghwy 43. You can park at just about any main intersection in GP here and have probably 100+ welding rigs go by in less than an hour for the morning and afternoon rushes. See the rigs moving 7 days/week, so good for them. They need to work too.

                          Later,
                          Jason
