    my latest project - welding/work table on air bags

    So here is what I have been up to in my spare time for about the last month. My buddy scored me this welding table for next to nothing. Its 4'4" x 3'2" x 3/4 plate top and main legs are 5x5x3/8 angle so it is pretty stout. The big issue was its height at only 29" tall it was fine for a sit...

    So my 2017 Sierra has been having an issue with giving me a service trailer brake system warning for the last few weeks.

    Camper shell storage... got any ideas?

    So I pulled the shell off of my 98 z71 last night for the first time in 20 years. The previous owner had it put shortly after buying the truck new in 98 and never pulled it off. I pulled it last night to get the back glass tinted and to be honest I can see me leaving it off as the truck just...
