    I saw this in Festivel Foods the other day. I thought it be a nice after dinner drink Saturday. We're having bacon wrapped chicken cordon blue.

    Same here. Especially on the worlwide inter webs.
    I deal with plenty of stock and particularly crypto scenes that are flooded with cold blooded scammers and hackers. Best to keep a low presence.
    You want to see a ruthless bunch of people, check out some trading social apps.
    Need ballz of steel to frequent those places. No mods around to give spankings or time outs if you say a bad word. lol

    A boom up top or how much space is underneath?
    Could do a latching step pedal similar to my beautiful sketch.
    Step down on the pedal and the tire kicks up.

    :thumbsup:Now we're getting somewhere.

    Instead of cranking it down, like stock.
    CRANK IT UP!

    Took the wife to see Pearl Jam, in the cities, awhile back.
    There were people seated in the balcony seats behind the band.
    Pearl Jam turned around during the 2nd set and played about 4 songs just facing them...was pretty sweet.

    @pearing , how about attaching the spare to a hinged section of the flatbed, that you could attach a lever and flip the tire right over the side and onto the ground. :notsure:

    I already tried selling him on a different hinged idea. I don't think he likes hinges....

    While changing the oil in the trail limo I installed the 1st of 3 Black Friday upgrades.
    No more achy knees climbing in/out the bed.
    Also a nice food prep surface and a round area to hold a beverage.

    not against hinges. I don’t think the hive mind gets how big and heavy things get at this size. I would have to make structural mounts (that are currently just sheet metal) to make that idea work. It is a great idea, just impractical to my current needs. I can still get it up and out, so I am okay with the current situation. The idea I like best is the swing away crane-kinda like the big military Oshkosh trucks have. Again a project for another day

    Are you going to have a rack on it?

    Otherwise, the crane idea is pretty slick. Just throwing stuff out there. I thought it would be pretty simple.
