    It is really handy. 2001 F150 5.7 4x4 spent its entire life on the North East coast, so there is a lot of cancer under the body no way to put it through a state safety insp. even as lax as the remote county inspections are here, but it is worth more to me as a knock around farm vehicle than it would be to part it out or scrap it

    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    The scaffolding looks fun; must have trustworthy driver? The school bus frame; now that was a mobile scaffold, but a wee bit inaccessible now.

    LOL, sure not. Recall pics of that thing? Neither a rai$e or being raised to that work height, then motored around.
    Think some wise guy quipped about it, if aircraft warning lights were required.........

    Its a lot handier than the bus scaffold just has to be moved more often, The bus scaffold served its purpose then was taken down. I've used this mobile scaffold many times I let a neighbor rent it once to hunt hogs with, we put the plywood platform on the lower level, They shot 10 hogs that night.

    At one time there was an estimate of over 3 million feral hogs including the young pigs in Texas. sponsored yearly hog hunts are becoming a Texas nationally recognized event it gives the city fellers something to shoot at besides the rancher's cattle & horses during deer season. 2 of my nearby neighbors trap them there is a buyer who will purchase any of them weighing over 100 lbs so they give the young piglets away. I have 2 that I got when they were about 15 to 20 lbs just barely weaning size they are about 35 and 50 lbs now the vet said neither are hybrid mix so when they are of size they will become fill for my freezer, if you have priced Biden's bacon and other pork products you can understand why
