You should show the trailer and all the tools you plan to haul. I don't envy your overhead.

If he needs and can afford a rig like that, I think I envy his overhead.

How do you like and use the transit connect? I have a full size van I do not understand how guys like GeorgeZ fit everything in small vehicles. Maybe if you do not have shelves and put everything in bins. I might do a transit connect for a run around vehicle sometime.

I've always wondered that too. I remember Steve Burnett had the PT Cruiser looking things, they looked pretty but I can't imagine they're easy to work out of.

I could see me driving something like that if I was running supplies for the crew. I used to use an Escape for that. But, the mpg wasn't that great and I needed to haul a trailer sometimes. Escape could pull 3000 lbs. But, now I run around in a 1500 crew cab. Get 2 mpg less than the Escape did on average.

Don't have trailer. The rig is at a fab shop currently. Getting daycabbed and the frame stretched. Then we are going to put a 24' van body on it. Some accessories on the rear bumper etc etc. Large generator/compressor inside. Two PC pumps with 200' of heated hose each. Bunch of other tools/components. Full powerwash setup inside.

I thought we were getting trolled with the pic of the semi. Sounds like an amazing setup is in the works. Hopefully you'll share some pics when it's complete.

Steve had three PT Cruisers but also had a full size pickup for the grunt work. Seemed to work well for him.

Our vehicles..we have a transit 250, transit connect and 2 E250's. Love the transits!-20170612_150557.jpg

Couple pics. Foam/polyurea truck finally done. Starting the three day trek home early tmrw morning!! And gonna have this baby working ball2wall starting Monday! This is something I've had in the works for almost two years now and I'm so stoked to see it coming to fruition!

Added in all the hoses and tools etc etc since I took the pics. Trucks full to the brim lol. Took three trips to the scale to get everything loaded properly. Was fighting too much weight on front axle.
