Looks strong! How come you didnt go with retractable sides?

abec
03-20-2014, 05:13 PM
I thought about it but decided that the truck is already wide that the deck being wide won't really matter hasn't really bothered me being this wide but I'm yet to walk into the side of it lol

Just did this nothing fancey at all here though I try to stay away from this stuff cause I have zero lifting equipment to move it around but after this I'm thinking a nice a frame gantry on wheels sure would be nice. It's a structural tie in for a railing on a house for a solarium
