    I thought about it but put these metal braces on each side of each joist and screwed them on both sides from underneath through the supports instead. 6’, 12’, and 18’ are double joist screwed together where my floor joints will be as well as both ends and both sides :thumbsup:

    Cross bracing is intended to let beams, joists and girders share the load during construction over a period of time.
    If you put the joists up one day and deck it a few days later the actual decking boards then attach all the joists together and act as one, each sharing the load of the one next to it.
    Personally I use a 2x4 staggered spacer between my deck joists, just to keep twisting and bowing at a minimum.

    How appropriate, it is on a Dodge. :rofl:

    More seriously, when those fender toolboxes came out I got talking to a fellow who had one, he said he would never buy a truck without one now. Neat use of wasted space.

    Throughout my 45 year driving career, I have carried a lot of useless stuff around thinking I would need it.
    Now, when I was so poor I drove junk, yes, I needed things. Once I started to be able to afford non junk, i still carried these things around.
    Jumper cables
    Tool roll
    Flares
    Tire plugs
    Tow strap
    Night stick
    Flash light
    Poncho
    Bottle jack
    Did I ever need any of these things? No. Not so far.
    The advent of the cell phone and internet have kinda cut the emergency stuff down to nothing, as we just call someone.
    My point, in a roundabout way, is I guess those bed boxes would be good to carry around stuff I never need lol.

    Haha! I will include a list of things I do carry now:
    Tiny med kit with surgical glue.
    A small amount of paracord.
    A lighter
    Electrical tape!

    I always have my Swiss Army knife in my pocket so there's scissors, phillips, flat, awl, toothpick and tweezers and a blade that will split atoms.
    That's it anymore. My truck is so dependable it does not need anything. But me? I might need some gauze and tape lol. Paracord has 1001 uses. A lighter another 1001 uses. Electrical tape the same. You can bind things stupid tight with electrical tape. So, my stuff fits in the glove box now. That's it.

    Seriously, you can usually call someone. I have AAA for those times. But you often have to wait for the response to come through with the needed aid. A couple of months ago I spent a very long and cold night on the shoulder of I40, waiting for assistance. It took AAA 8 HOURS to get a tow truck to respond to my request for assistance. When possible I would prefer to be the one able to provide the aid.

    Morning shop folks! :hattip:

    Was a little behind on post, so if you see a bunch of likes on old post, yea that was me :anonymous:


    Finally got a rough move in date for grandma. So, it looks like I need to shift priorities and get her room cleaned out, painted, new outlets, etc. I'll be strait up I'm not looking forward to this at all, but I believe it's the right thing to do. She is a difficult person to be around a lot of times :laugh: However at 90 years old she's pretty sharp still, heck even still drives. However I believe with her moving in here we can finally convince her to not drive. I'll probably drive her little Jetta to work to save miles off the new truck. Maybe I can finally narrow down that oil leak, but it is after all a Volkswagen :rofl:

    As for all the other stuff, I've got pretty much everything but the kitchen sink. I've driven reliable vehicles for a long time, but not everybody does, and I don't always need the stuff I have for a vehicle related purpose.

    Good morning friends, have a blessed Sunday :hattip:


    My truck has a bunch of stuff in it, tools, straps, tape, toilet paper, padlocks, jumper cables, gloves, bunch of keys I don’t know what they fit, etc.

    My car has a pair of gloves and a pack of gum, I drive it 99% of the time :anonymous:

    Whenever I was taking stuff out of my old truck into my new one last Monday I found a roll of Angel Soft toilet paper shoved behind the seats :rofl:

    I can't even use that stuff in my new house, but I guess if I ever need to squat over a guard rail it's there for me :anonymous:
