    I got an older Handler 187. It was replaced by the 190. It was brand new and too good of a deal to pass up. If you can get a 220 machine do it.

    LEDs all wired up ready for final install. Didn't use any type of converter. Just spliced into the factory harness.

    Finished up the rear lights and threw the tray on to see how I want to lay out the bed. I think eventually I want to elevate the spare above the bed with clearance to my totes and ice chest.

    Got tired of staring a my Corbeau Baja SS seats in my garage and decided to get them put in the truck. I used the Chassis Unlimited billet sliders on the driver side for some adjustability. May pick up another set for the passenger side in the future.

    Good work, keep it up. I really like that bed

    Thanks for the advice on the welder. I think I'll look at getting a 230v when my tax return come in.

    Any update pictures of the flatbed outside of your garage? I'd like to see a full side shot, etc in the open!

    As would I. Soon though. I have a few more things to finish. Mount a few lights, passenger seat, tool box, touch up some spots on the bed, rear license plate/light and finish attaching bed. I plan on getting most of that finished this week and drive it to work for the next couple weeks.

    Bed, bed lights, license plate and tool box are mounted. I also added 6 tie downs to the edges of the bed. Just need to clean up some wiring and get my harness bar installed and the red truck should be ready to go.

    License plate is low but removable. I may change it up later but it makes me street legal now.

    Drove it to work today. Probably drive it all next week as well.

    Truck seems to have some pep in the highway now. Apparently the stock bed was a little heavier than the tube bed.

    That bed looks great. I'm assuming it's locally made?

    Yep, a couple guys here locally (Shrockworks) made it for an 91 reg cab and by chance it fit on my 85.

    Burned my clevis mounts on last night and realized bed space is at a premium now. I need to organize it a tad better.

    Finally got some wheeling in this past weekend. The 9th Annual Lonestar Toyota Jamboree. I initially wanted to trailer my rig up there but ended up making the 4hr trip each way to Barnwell Mountain on the highway loaded down. In my mind the truck did pretty well. On the Highway right at 17mpg. On the trail it I also was very happy with it. I had an engine problem which I thought was a faulty TPS sensor and ended up being a bad connection on the ingitor/coil assembly. I got that fixed and wheeled for the rest of the weekend.

    I got in a little wheeling at K2 in mason TX this past weekend. It was a little wet but awesome. This park is probably the best example of rock crawiling in the state of TX. The whole place is solid Granite. Its about 550mile round trip from Houston and I drove my rig to and from the park.
