Here you go Budnate. A few pics of my truck.
I put the head-ache rack in so it is there all the time. Has 3" angle iron box caps that run the full length of the box. That way I don't dent my box rails with anything heavy.


Then the tool boxes and cable raps (swing out on the left side) are all attached to one main skid that bolts to the fithewheel rails in the bed. Then the welder and both oxygen bottles along with the yellow extention cord (right) and the remote (left) all lift out on another little skid. The tail gate has two sleaves on either side for my vise to fit it to work off of.




These are pics that I had in my computer all ready. If you got anymore questions budnate, let me know. Happy to answer ya.

I am not so sure about the power of blue. LOL....... It quite on me the other day. Just would not start. I fiddled with it all weekend. Ended up taking it to town (2 hrs away). They put a new HR Meter/ Fuel gauge in it. NOw it starts again. Told me that miller had sent out a service notice about falty hr meters! Brought it home and fired it up and it shut itself off after 25 sec's. So after fiddleing and bypassing stuff for a few hrs, back to town I go. Guess what they had to replace!!!!!!!!! That flippen hr and fuel gauge again!!! The machine only had 620hrs on it.......

Anyhoo, If I had to go by a new machine today it would be the Lincoln 3D classic. either the perkin or kabota engine would be fine!!

Thats my thoughts anyways

Sorry to hear about that. I haven't had much experience with gas driven units. But have been very happy with my matic 252 for the little stuff I do. Best of luck getting her up and running.

Looks clean as hell man. Can you plug a mig into that wilder and mig with it? Like the lay out of everything.
Yeah I can mig or tig with it too. My neighbor has spool gun for aluminum and he plugged it into my welder and tried it. He said it worked great.

Thanks for all the coments guys.

And a little advise for you guys that are thinking about setting up a truck. If you do it in a short box you will have :loud: NO EXTRA ROOM!!!!!!!! LOL Just a little something to keep in mind.

I Got about 20K into it. Thats for the welder,tools,skid (iron costs), Cables & hoses, and so on. And I already had the truck, So that is why I went with the short box. Cause I did not want to spend the money on another truck too!
