Shipping would be to much. I need a 6x4 ramp gate made. I did find a guy that said he would do it for $100. Will see what happens.

Other then that I have a trimmer rack on my truck. Its not working to good so I need to make like a U shape with angle iron to fit in the stake pockets and go over the bed rails. The rack would bolt right to it.

I kinda want one of those ladder racks that go on one side. There pretty cheap but it should only be a few bucks for materials.

Ill take that backpack rack off your hands too.

I might buy a welder soon, if this guy doesnt come through. I just dont know how much trial and error it will take to do good welds. Do you need a 220 to work with this type of steel or will a smaller one do?

How did you make that! That is so cool! Did you draw it out first to design it or did you just piece it together as you went?

I just piece it together from the metal scrap I have. I wanted to get the blower out of the trailer, I might rebuild it I've been thinking of a different one to build more like the green touch one.. I made 1 other one and sold it already.

The metal is about $10 and I'll check on how many lbs it is and get a price. I would make it so it has the center brace to bolt on so it would ship somewhat flat and I'll let you know ...I will only charge what the metal and shipping cost to everyone on the forum cause I get all my welding wire and the gas for the welder free.
