The weedburner is on.

We re-utilized the original stack support, welded couple of C-channels to it and hung it from the frame braces, we also re-positioned the rear airbrakes valve.

Usually these are hung on the passenger side but it looked like it was going to hand better in the drivers side. We needed three 90 degree five inch bends and three new clamps other than that we used the existing stuff since it was in good shape.
Henry was nervous about the proximity of the muffler to the fuel tank and the fuel lines so he re-installed both muffler guards (from both stacks) on that side.

Jack, we do have "initial budget".
Here's also "initial" project plan for those who would like to follow the progress:

1. Convert dual stacks to weed burner.
2. Forward deck modifications:
a) fill-in back in-steps
b) drom anchoring
c) winch anchoring
3. Smart loading modifications:
a) ramps anchors
b) chock anchors
c) straps anchoring
4. Fabricate:
a) four chocks
b) cable fairlead
5. Lengthen truck frame (rails)
6. Re-mount ET further back (upgrade ET)
7. Re-mount bumper further back
8. Extend deck framing and deck
9. Paint and rubberize deck
10. Build drom
11. Mount drom


I understand you are coming to the National HDT Rally in Hutchinson. I was on the fence as to if I should attend but I am thinking if I do we can talk about the status of our project in detail. See you there.
