Nice rig! Did you have your wife organize those storage compartments? Because I know I can't keep my tool box looking that nice.

Big investment there!

Hats off to you for being able to keep a working vehicle that clean and uncluttered, even dressed up for a show!

Congratulations for the win in class.

I didn't see a floor jack on board, though.

The floor jack is in a plastic case, in front of the gas can & washer fluid jug.

Very nice!

With my skills as a full time firefighter, I have been looking into working part time as a light duty tow operator.

If you have some time PM me with some info as to how to get training/started working in the business.

Rep points for posting up. Very nice truck indeed. I like the LED's in the front valance... that gives me some ideas.. . And being from Illinois originally I know how hard it is to keep a vehicle that clean there... If I ever need a tow I would hope that truck would show up.

By the way where is the 5star sticker? LOL


Mike

The truck looks awesome. Love the organization, glad I am not the only one who likes it that way. My wife just laughs at me about.

Thanks guys. The show judges are very big on organization. If you want a shot at winning, you must have a well organized truck. Don't worry Mike, the 5 star decal will find it's way on the truck too...
