That would be my welder including the cart but not the "art work". It is a miller 300/300 AC/DC with a foot pedal water cooled Tig. It is the heaviest load that I carried in my former Ranger!

I can't speak for Torch Red, however, a very pure red will just eat paint. To avoid the problem a pure red as I understand it needs a bit of black in it to get coverage. I had a friend try to paint a...

I really like both the seats and the color with the red truck. My concern is that the seat backs look thick which will be a problem with leg room in our trucks. The stock seats and what I used...

The hinges that you installed are also a marine product (316ss) like the catches that I used. I have the same basic hinges on my boat for a deck hatch.

Charlie, 32" on an F-1 and 34" on an F100. Track width on a Jag is essentially identical to the early F series.

You did not indicate what year you are fitting the Jag to, if it is a 48-52 it is going to be different, make that easier, to mount than the pictures that peter posted since the 48-52 frame rails are...

The reason that I asked about the year of the 9" is the greater width from 1973 on in the trucks. The 1972 and earlier rears were essentially the same width, wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting...
