    I actually made that from 4x4 timber and just harbor freight casters. Worked perfect for my application. I did all my purchases for the truck around 2006-2008 for the parts. Thanks for the compliment on the paint. I actually got burnt out on the truck, I had a guy that knew what he was doing and took 3500 of my money and made a complete mess of the truck. He went thru a gallon of base on just the cab. I told him you need a black sealer to put on the truck 1st before you apply the color. Well to make a long story short, I got the parts back and 3500.00 less and I block sanded the entire truck in a month. 1 weekend I spent 14 hours 1 day painting this truck in pieces. .

    thanks
    pat

    Welcome from Texas nice lookin truck! Blue is my favorite color! Awesome paint job. Just had another guy on here trying out his hand at painting and finding out how hard it really is to do a good job. It takes a lot of practice and patience but, you've done a great job.
