Been a crazy few months in my neck of the woods.....My life recently in pictures:


I've done probably ten 8.8 axles over the last few months. Two more are on the shop floor. Seems it's a popular swap here in the midwest.


Kicked a few garage signs out for the local clubs...

Built a few bumpers...

New bendpak lift in the shop has made all the difference in the world. Not sure how I did it without it...

Trussing up a fullwidth at the moment with some other misc built not bought pieces....


Life is good..

Weld. Every. Damn. Day.

I've mostly stopped doing "outside" work these days. I got asked to come back to the corporate world and have had very little time to build much at the shop.

Chad, same as above applies. Just not doing "build to order" at this point. I occasionally will build one because I have some steel available, but simply build as time allows.

I appreciate the interest in the bumpers. Right now I'm going to concentrate on my own projects again

Thanks for the reply...I know how demanding the corporate world can be... that is why i would rather buy than build, even though i have access to all the machinery it would take... I have access to two cnc plasma cutters that are capable of cutting 60" wide by 325" long... that is the day job for me, programming the plasmas... its awesome to see see what they are capable of, just not enough time to get my own stuff drawn up and built...
