I realized I often take two days to complete one day jobs. Adding a couple cameras, piping and installing electronic door hardware, hanging speakers...if I had certain things stocked on the truck I could bang the job out without wasting all my time moving tools and materials in and out of my truck.

I own a few Rubbermaid carts that are always living on jobsites because I can't easily transport them from site to site. So many small jobs are be expedited by having a cart on hand.

I rented a Chevy Express for a week and it just wasn't big enough...so I went bigger.

I remember once on here you said you suspected I was a two bit handyman.

Was that a subtle invitation into your guild?

My father always referred to anything of poor quality as "two bit". In conversation on a job site I one said "what do I know I'm just a two bit wire jockey"...speaking in jest. So I went with it....

It's high but it's also a bit of an optical illusion. Most standard boxs are 7' high 8' wide, mine is a custom build that's a little shorter narrower. Just enough height for my head to clear the rear frame. Just enough width to cover the tires.

Body builder said I'd never be able to sell it again if I went under 7'. I said I don't care I'm not 7' tall.

Why the hell didn't I see it on IG. Man that's a beautiful dream machine for any tech. Blank canvas. When are you planning on building it out?
