choppa, like I have told ya before, you never cease to amaze me!!

I actually wanted to know, [sm=idea.gif] where do you get all your free time to fabricate/reinvent your stand?! Do you still spend time bashing? I hope so!! I can never seem to find time to bash, let alone weld a totally awesome frickin' truck stand!!! Do you work too?!

All in all, I'm impressed... I wish I had a welder so that I could whip something together, and SHOW OFF like choppa does!!! LoL [sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

Heck Choppa, go for it... If you have the means to do, then by all means, DO IT!! Personally, I think that the possibilities would be ENDLESS if you have the equipment to fabricate things like you do....

You have like my DREAM JOB... I am in the process of going to CDL training... I eventually wanna get certified for heavy machinery too. There are NO jobs in Ohio, but I plan on moving back to SC where I did construction for about a year. I wanna get my CDL to drive dump truck, not necessarily semi trucks...

I seen them on ebay somewhere... They had mini-jacks and mini-jack stands... I am planning on getting 4 jack stands, and a mini jack... The guy I found on ebay, actually lives in MY city, so I contacted him about getting them from him locally, to save on shipping... I will try to find it, and provide a link.

I agree, get out there and get that jato dirty before the "Winter" season comes and most people don't wanna run during the winter(well some do it anyway during the winter, but u know what I mean)...
