    Thanks!

    I've got big plans for it this summer, but need to complete a house project for my wife first....

    Flatbed design is coming along, still not quite happy with it.

    I gotta get that front suspension! I bet it flexes like mad and rides like your sitting on air!

    The side skirts on a flatbed is what makes it look finished and not so half a$$.
    I've got some aluminum diamond plate to work in on my mini flat bed. But I think my wife wants me to sell it. She doesn't get the "truck thing"

    The price was right and it has good reviews!

    Can't vouch for noise as I've only run it about a foot so far! I even volunteered to help a friend pull out some bushes but he dug them out instead...
