    • Thanks. people seem to really dig it. Im using a MAC mini. I bought the mac a few moths back. I love it but I dont fully understand all the differences yet. Im still stuck in P.C mode. My oldest son is at Millitary camp all summer. He could fix this thing.lol. Now Im stuck till the end of august. Oh wait. He put Widows for mac on here. Im going to play around with that and see if I can get more pics up.

      • Dean, that's the first time I've seen something like that and I've got to say: Good thinking! Is there a rest for it when you swing it in, or is all the weight always on that one pivot?

        Those Mac mini's sure a a great little package aren't they. A friend uses one as his portable photo and video album

                        • The big drawback I have with this setup is it places 900+lbs at the rear most part of the truck. Aside from beefing up the rear suspention I also had to make sure the weight that was going to be in the truck full time was as far ahead as I could get it. I also added weight the the front of the truck to keep the break bias in check. If I had a big block or even better, a diesel. I wouldnt have needed the weight up front. The best truck for this setup would be a 2500/3500 4X4 diesel extended cab or crew cab. As far as pickups go anyway. The 1500 small block like I have wont do for the long term. It will have to do for now but if I can make a go of this business I will have to step up to a bigger more rugged pick-up. Glad you guys like it.

                          • Also. On the back side of the bracket that slides over the pin there is a 1/2 inch plate welded there that sits on top of the 4X4 bumper. I figured I wouldnt want all the weight supported only by the pin. No matter how big the pin is. For the pivot I used a 3600lb rated 6 bolt trailer axle. It will support the weight of the welder but I use the drop down wheel to lift the welders weight of the pin and also use it as a break when the welder is away from the truck.

                              • I agree, but I can see how the extra 900lbs behind the rear axle could be a bit of a down side, especially on the 1500.
