    Cousin Vinny... I wanted to buy a complete rail, predrilled from Volvo, but dealer ticked me off with slow answers from Volvo so I opted for double framing 8 feet of that rail
    Checked with a place in Vermont and another in Ohio that makes rails, but Volvo and Mack rails are flared 8 inches in the front so they would not do them.

    Yeah but hey, sounds like it wasn't too tough of a job for you so that's a score if you managed to save a couple bucks.

    That's great to hear. I wanted to buy one for a long time but they were just way too expensive.

    We got a factory refurbished Nitro Kohki Atra Ace Mag drill for $300 from a local tool company a couple years ago. Carbide tip annular cutters are a must for truck frames. They make drilling frames any easy task.
