    Lets go slacker, you should be working on it now instead of sitting here on PS.
    When you are done I will give you the dimensions for my truck, the second one always comes out better.

    Hardest thing on this thing was to bend the flat stock so they were the same. I made a jig and bent it around the jig.

    Good, building things like that take quite a while. My ATV drop basket took me over 6 hours to build.

    I plan on having the welding done by afternoon. And getting it primed and painted. So I can mount it saturday for when I go to the lake for the last time ice fishing.
