I keep trying to get Gerald to change our slogan to-

"Buy our stuff, it has a higher scrap value than anyone else's".

He just gives me the stink eye and growls alot.

Good! Notice lack thereof (corners)... been rather lucky, so far. Sometimes, procrastination does pay.



On another, somewhat related, note... we turned the low fuel light on this morning. A gas tank skid install is imminent!

There are a few other companies that already make gas tank skids that do not require a body lift.

All,

Went over to Blaine's yesterday and installed the gas tank skid. Needless to say, with Blaine's help, we had it done in under 90 minutes. This skid really fits good and gave me much more clearance everywhere, including my RE track bar. Gonna take it up to Big Bear this weekend, and see if I can bang and scrape it!

Thanks for your help Blaine! This skid rocks!
