I hope my decision is correct.

Took the truck to a place in West Palm Beach to have the box shortened. Should have done a before Photo so I can have something to compare as after. In too much of a rush last night. They aren't supposed to start on it until Thursday, so I might have some time between now and then to check on it and get a photo.

 

The length will be only enough to fit the motorcycle loader inside. Haven't decided how I will get the bike on it and inside yet, but that will happen. I have a few ideas. My box isn't quite wide enough to do a side load and unless I find a low spot to pull into it is at the top range of the how high the loader could be if it is mounted on the floor of the box. I will post my ideas once I have the room on the frame rails to work with.

 

Wish me luck,

ps. the A/C worked great on the trip to the shop. Didn't check the indicator lights, but had to turn the fan down after about 10 minutes of driving.

The above link should take you to the Before and After photos of my decision to shorten my garage on the truck. Additional photos can be made available for those who have an interest.

 

Also had the bottom panel of the overhead door replaced. They really tightened the springs with the re-install so if the door is unlatched it's at least 3/4 the way open. Caught me a little off guard the first time I opened it.

Thanks Mark,

 

I shared it with my friends on Google+ but I guess that doesn't allow people who don't have Google+ to see it. Hopefully it's better now. Tried to post the photos here but got the message I'm not allowed to post the content. Will work on it later today.

Rod, I noticed that in the old box pictures there were lights/reflectors(?) on the rear upper and lower corners of the box that aren't on the shortened box? You got a plan for rear side marker lights along with the ID lamps that used to be on the old rear of the box (I am assuming that they are gone too)??

Sorry buddy. I tend to notice them lights...don't quite understand why :)

Are you shortening the frame out the rear too? Depending on how far back the frame ends, the end of the box may not need "rear" side markers lights. It might need a yellow "mid" side marker light on the box.

The stinger will be shortened significantly too. Maybe not right away, want to be sure How long I really need it to be. I need to move the trailer the end of April and then will have a couple months to play with the truck and trailer together. Right now I can't keep the truck close to the trailer and won't be able to see them together until I move. Did find my leveling arm in need of repair and can see what was done to the wiring either at Spacecraft or when the frame was lengthened. Will have that tidied up a lot soon. Will check into some lighting too. My thought is more light the better.
