    I just bought the same Miller Air Pak too. Got delivered late Friday. Excited to get it out of the box and put to work. Let us know how yours is working

    Thanks! I've been full time independent for 4 years now, Wajax equipment, other gigs, and part time independent before that. I was on the fence about deleting that corner cabinet, but my boxes are 74" tall, I'm not hurting for room at all, and the open deck is so handy. I have a buddy with an Int'l 7300/IMT dominator that have added a covered aluminum doghouse, under $4000 at Fabcan PG, the place that did my whole body.

    That is beautiful. Any color but white is a huge plus in my book. If I ever get another one it will probably be all black or some sort of dark gray. Nice truck....TIO

    Haha thanks. Pretty sure my wife is wondering the same thing with all the time I’ve spent on it. Trying to decide what crimping machine to go with for hyd hose if anyone has any suggestions. Leaning towards the Parker karrykrimp 2so far. Here’s a couple more pics I have

    Nice rig diggindirt. I am really liking the wide tool cabinet behind the drivers door. Really nice how there's 2 banks of drawers with the shelf on top. I looked up STI crane bodies after seeing yours, nice stuff.

    How come you had to get new tools with the truck? Just showing off?

    We are a smaller company, this truck was an addition to the fleet not a replacement so that’s why all the tools are new. I use the truck a lot doing pipeline maintenance jobs(changing valves, actuators, pumps, etc.) and sometimes on our job sites for tools, supplies, welding, not just mechanics

    Not that I'm aware of. I took this picture right before a dismantling company came in and took it apart to haul it to somewhere in Pennsylvania.

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg BA95617F-A200-4752-BD79-7DB237FF43A7.jpeg 03 f550 service/lube truck. Get the job done. Will be up for replacement next year with a new one. Bad thing is the company is going with v10 engines. But hell im not buying the fuel.
