Sawed off.. hauling tools

I recently opened up my own plumbing and mechanical business. I was faced with the option of getting rid of my LBZ or converting it to a work rig. I chose the latter because I could not let her go.
I had the bed custom made by a company in Lubbock, Tx it has a massive tool box at the front of the bed and then two side boxes that are around 8" deep and 72" long. I think it turned out pretty good.

So was mine before I started working out of it...

Give it a few months.

With all that tool storage, he should have a place for everything and not have to pile stuff up inside the cab.

Bed looks really usable with easy access.

Good luck on your new venture!

Looks good, what happened to the white truck you bought or did you hire someone new?

Did you say you're hiring me finally? I'll take the red truck, you take the white one.
