He (and Mardy) did an awesome job! We're already very pleased and happy as two pigs in a mud puddle, high noon on a sunny day!

No wire, but it already has 2 holes for the safety cable on the back. Ha, ha, you thought I'd forget it didn't you? Mardy only welded the legs on the 4 corners the rest I did smarty pants!

You want me to send you one of these?

I'm sure you will be very happy, The Old Goat will make sure of that, he has helped me so much and always done a great job. He will do anything for anybody that needs help, not much of better person them him and his family. Wait til you see his shop and his 300 clamps. If I know him he will treat you like family. And as far as Alabama Bob, we looked at the otherside next to the furnace. You have to clear the door and it would have to take up to much space, we looked at it all different ways, and even had to cut down one rail on that side. They had plenty of room to move that furnace under the stairs, but they put it there and it's cuts down on your space. OC's model is layed out different and his storage doors allows full access. Much better layout. Hay if OC can't do it nobody can. If I remember right he has a double shelf, great set up. And Weezer I see you changed your avatr to a sign with a skillet. I like that. Never mess with a woman with a cast iron skillet....

No next time I stop at your home you can install it. And yes I did, You know how to weld I'm not saying that, it just takes more grinding to clean them up. I was surprised at how well you could.......

Dropped my TT off at my friendly welder to install a 2" receiver so I can store my WDH when not in use and attached to the rear of my TV. Also, have a few other modifications only the welder can do, since I don't weld.

Pictures when completed.

Here's what I did............
I brought it home from the dealership for the very first time!
I did a "pull test" 4 weeks ago today and found a few issues... paid for it 3 weeks ago today... bit my nails while dealer's service people scrounged for authorizations, parts, advice... reinspected it today and pulled it home. Looking forward to 9 nights at Hickory Creek Park (COE) on Lake Lewisville (Texas) in a few days.

Dang OC, that's beautiful! You have skills!! I really like to D&D Chassis badge on it too. The whole project is well thought out and wonderfully executed. Thank you so much!

Seriously, I can't begin to tell you how much I like that, We've been looking forward to meeting you and TOWTA. Now we have another great reason to come and visit.
