    OK. thats a great idea. i don't think I'd try it with my Chevy 1 ton with fiberglass sides. did you reinforce the bed?
    the company i worked for had a 350 with a rack and we'd carry some heavy beams on it till one day we show that the bed was pushed down about 1.5 inch's and the side were pushing outward. the rack never bent but the body was bad off. we put a cross brace and kept on running it.
    i really like it, I'm going look at my bed to see if i can do something.

    I own a couple rigs of my own, I know how important it is to have the ability to carry 4 x 8 sheets of wood.

    I think putting your welders up high is a good idea if you want to work out of a pick up bed.

    Nice!!!

    It's nice having both! One for welding and one for a truck. I built my truck that way. I have a 4' x 8' bed with it loaded, check it out. Also, I built the monster from scratch. The post is "Build your own service truck"

    That was my intent

    Like I said above It was a lot more useful for me to leave the factory bed and raise my welders. I have had numerous welding truck with flat beds like most welders but my bed was covered with my welding gear and never could carry any additional equipment or supplies. I can still carry a 4' x 8' sheet, ladder or 5 gallon buckets of primer paint. I don't know for sure but I think the factory bed is even lighter, as show in the photos I scale 11000 lbs with the tool boxes full and 21900 towing the fork lift in the first photo.

    Thanks

Use this rig when installing stair and railing first welder is tacking it in place with a 7018 stick rod and running power for grinder, band saw, hilti drill etc and the second welders is sewing it up with .035 feeder mig gun. If you run accessories from the rear welder with the mig you notice it a lot.

    IC just a thought, I am always looking for ways to cut costs and make things smiple.

    But if it works then DO IT, as my old boss says..............

    other then that looks good.

    why the need for two??

    you could save yourself lots of space and fuel cost by maybe running like a CST280/250 off the front of your newer 250, i guess it just depends on how much power you need on the second arc?? or even like a maxstar 200 draw very little and work great.......

    just my two cents.

    i have a TB302 and i have run a XMT 304 off the front and run both machines on 5/32 rod all day once....
