    I took mine out, the wiring was garbo and didnt last a single winter season. I still get compliments on the looks tho, just nevermind the empty light holes on the one side where it was riveted on

    I'm thinking in either going to powder coat the front bumper black or spend the money on an 18" SS bumper. Only thing about getting a SS bumper, I have blank poly fenders on the drives, so it might not look right. I'm leaning towards coating or buying a new black bumper.

    Just tell them you'll install all the chrome and chicken lights they're willing to buy you.

    Unloading in Rockford this morning
    Staring at The Rock river and its flooded. The lot to get in here is right on the river and flooded, past the 1st step on my fuel tank.
    According to the unloader its supposed to crest Thursday and I have another load coming on Thursday.

    Delivered a food grade load this morning. I think I prefer chemicals over food grade. Although it was nice not having to drag a hose off the rack. Trailer has its own hoses and fittings.

    It's not a big % of our business that I know of. We have a couple of accounts that we dedicate FG trailers to, but we also do chemical loads from them also.

    Ran up to Omaha earlier in the week. I-29 was closed from Rockport, Missouri, to Omaha, so I had to cut over into Kansas at St. Joseph, then up 75 to Nebraska Hwy 2, then up Nebraska 50 to I-80 (they join right there at the Werner mothership) and back over into Omaha, then back the same way. They are setting records for flooding all over Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri, worse than 2011, worse than 1993, worse than 1975 (or maybe it was '73), which are the worst years I remember.

    Had a very easy delivery in Louisville this morning. All I had to do was back in and hook up the air hose. The receiver did the rest. The Mississippi River is at least two miles wide where I-155 crosses.
