    Thanks mark. Ya in algonquin.

    So on the lights The mounts are just welded to the hitch and the lights themselves you can buy just like that. Then the run off a power unit like your basic hide away lights do.

    Not sure what they run i can find out. I was able to get them from one of our old trucks where i work in the summer months. They are basiclly the hide away bulbs in that style light. I know they aren't home made they are store bought. I also mounted them on the front plow mount.

    Hey Denny,

    Sorry to hear about that, I was listening to it for a couple days while they were searching because its kind of close to me. Bad things happen to good people.

    Where you from ? I live in haegers bend. We grew up together since we where in diapers. Me and all my close friends watched both days of the rescue. :cry: We all grew up down here in what we call the hood. Every year someone dies on the river some how. When it's your time it's your time.

    Ya, my pop was a firefighter too, he's retired now, so was his dad, and also my brother is currently on the FD, all were on the Elgin FD, my uncle was the FF that died in the fox at the damn in elgin saving some kids that went over it on a dare, him and another FF died, they finally put up a memorial down there next to the river a couple of years ago. Not sure if you were asking where I'm from or not but I'm in Elgin, I constantly listen to 95 Will Rock and they kept giving updates on it.

    Me? I'm in woodstock. Not far from the city pool by rt14.

    I'm sure you remember me, I'm in the shop probably once a month trying to convince Howard to get me a job:D Was there when you discovered the fantastic shape of your last 14 bolt carrier after looking at my plow wings.
