    You should see what some people use pallets for out my way....it's crazy. A guy down the road likely had over two or three hundred of the damn things stored behind his house for a few years; only recently did he start breaking them down and using them to build a deck and covered porch on the front of his house. He finished probably about 8 months ago now, maybe a little more.....and honestly, it looks pretty damn good(considering). He's painted it all up and everything; definitely impressed me for what it is. I'll see about snagging a pic this week if I think about it.

    Yeah, the pallet thing has been a thing for building/making things for a few years now (trendy in thing). But a fence is damn sure different. I see it as, you just built a ladder to access your whole back yard. Pending it doesn't fall over.

    Valid point. I kept a bunch around for awhile; ultimately most of them ended up as the backstop/lateral limits for the above-mentioned range. I had intended initially to do something completely different with them, although now I don't recall what that was.:rofl:

    The truck has been dropped for it’s fuel pump recall. Paper work said 3 hrs., I think.. dealer says all day. Don’t really care, just get it done.

    Yeah, I need to stop being lazy and run my VIN to see if mine qualifies; haven't been motivated enough to do so yet.

    Rite rite.

    last year they had no fix or parts. December at inspection time, they said they were ordering parts. Last week was we have ‘em. So, bring it in.

    I never had any issues but that don’t mean nuttin to them. One less thing I have to pay for if it ever goes out, Is how I see it.

    Haha. Do it! If ya wanna.

    I asked if the pull the bed or just drop the tank. They said drop it. Was kinda hoping for the the bed removal so that would be one step closer to a flat bed. :D But then again, That’s a pipe dream that will never take flight. :annoyed::D

    I've yet to have the bed off mine, but from what I understand it's not too hefty of an undertaking. Why you looking to go flatbed? For the general utility or do you eventually wanna do a FWC or similar...?

    Yeah, From what I hear, it doesn't weight squat. As for the Flat bed.. The look itself is an acquired taste to which I do like. and the usefulness is almost limitless. An FWC would down right awesome, but will not happen on this end.
