Re: Welding Truck pics

this was my old truck i traded for the 450.


i would love to get into pipeline and maintenance, but up here, its all different. one day it's hardfacing, the next it's a set of railings, and the next could be a coule of 30' beams. i wish i could set up the truck more, but i need the versatility. i have a removable fork for the rear to fit all the 20'-40' material.

Re: Welding Truck pics

Our newest one at work. We built the bed, everything on it. Custom torch lead reel I made myself. Nice not having to roll that hose up around some stupid bent pieces of faltbar. Some stuff I would have done different, but it turned out nice. Shame it had to be a duramax.

Couple more we have, the last one I think was bought from a guy from northwest pipeline. Def. not my favorite bed.
Looks like a boat, or maybe a corvette.

I like the short bed regular cabs the best as far as looks.
Jacked up a bit helps!!

do you have to disconnect the line everytime to reel it up? i thought about making cable reels for my leads, but it seems to be a pain in the ass with the contacts and all.
