    I have seen then but was not sure if great dane had something funky in the width. Just cant seem to get to Louisville to buy them. It's alot easier getting them on line.

    Take one off and walk into any parts store with it. At the front of the sliding rail is a set screw, 1/2 inch head of i remember right. Take it out and the winches just slide out or in. Remember to replace it or they may slide out when you are going down the road.

    right now they need vans. there's a shortage of vans because the van side is expanding so fast. i traded my van in for a flatbed early because they needed the van for guys coming in for vans. Was also told they aren't buying anymore steps this year because they had too many already, so only flats right now. Not sure if that changed any in the last few months.

    i bought 4 from mercer and 4 from US Cargo Control. They look identical and iirc the ones at mercer were $1-2 cheaper but I got free shipping online

    Bullcocka...me thinks the agents are crying that they can't get van drivers to cover the loads they got from brokers, but the cause is they've negotiated a crap rate...

    I figured the reason they started the van division is because they had flatbed freight that was too cheap for the flatbed guys to run so they started putting it on vans. We all know van freight is cheaper than flat freight.

    So after i get my APU installed im thinking of Making cabinets in my truck. So the question is What wood should i use or make them? Also should i just bolt to my old Shelf's?(Truck has FLAT shelf's one of driver side on on pass side). Or should i just take them down and build all new ones?

    I’ve been thinking about new shelving and cabinets in my truck a lot lately since I’ve got a 58” sleeper and want to maximize storage. Pretty sure I’m gonna take everything out and use 3/4” plywood and utilize the existing bolt holes.
