    Not bad at all for a "beater". Do away with the Jr. plate and your all set :nod:

    First let me tell ya, that truck ain't no beater. She's prettier'n mine.

    Second: How'd you make the rack? I can see you used square steel, but did you bolt it together, weld it, what?

    Man, that sure is a beater. A 3/4 with a 454 and only a 7.6? Thats the dumbest thing ever.































    Nice truck man. Your "beater" is newer/nicer than my dd/work truck. Best of luck to ya with it.

    Btw, I think that 454 just maybe would be able to handle an 8ft, just make sure you angle it when driving and always have your strobes on. :rolleyes::D

    One other question for ya (because I'm thinking about making one for my truck): Did you weld it to the trucks frame? Or did you bolt it on somewhere?
