Welding Rig Thread - welders unite!

Im starting this thread in hopes to see other Powerstroke-driving mobile rig welders. I'm a red seal welder in the heart of Alberta where portable rigs are a dime a dozen. It woul be nice to schoot the schit and talk set-ups as I'm looking into building a skid and tool up.

As Pink Floyd would say, "is there anybody...OUT there?"

They had a cool truck in the work truck articles ( one of the diesel rags)

the truck ( regular bed, not a flat bed) had a Kelderman air ride and the welding skid had arms He could slide into the rig

lower the bags and drive out from the skid
