I build my own topside creeper and i wanna share some picture with you guys!
I built it for about $150 to $200

first i bought a ladder with a hinge in middle!



i cut one side to keep the hinge




Welded some pieces of aluminum to build frame

install a pigtail to keep air hose or anything with a wire out of the way


Final result


my brother has tested it now it's 225 pounds proofs


56" height and can go 48" more but it not build for that high
go ahead if you have any question!

I would add some a nice pillow on the top or something. Other than that it looks great.

How did you get that angle on the ladder hinge? We use those ladders all the time at work and I have not seen it lock at that angle before.

i put a piece of plywood on top for now but when i will have more time i will cover it with a piece of foam and leather to be easier to clean

I built it only to change my turbo. I blowed the oil seal about a month ago. I ordered a garrett 4094 from alligator should be here tomorrow!

Interesting... Just wanted to see if you could build it yourself instead of buying one?
