In a way but theyre only going to be 18" high or so. Theyre going to be green with white lettering but if I dont like the white lettering they will stay solid!

No. Since its my daily driver and I plan on getting a dump insert this summer so at that point they are coming off! 18" is right around the top of the window which I really wanted to protect. I might space them with a small gap in between the boards to make it taller but I am unsure until i mess around tomorrow and see how it looks!

Sounds good man, Tim's got the gaps and I don't, don't know which I'd like better but I assume the ones I have. Going for an insert eh? Seems like that could be rough for a daily driver but let us know when you get it!

Yeah I will have to see how i like the board setup before I actually construct it. And if I have a good summer I would like to pick up a small ranger or something because I drive to Slippery Rock for school every week, come home to work every weekend, go back up at the end of the weekend and if i get a few more contracts I will be driving back and forth on Thursday as well. And twice a month in the spring and fall I drive from Slippery Rock to carnegie to work at one contact I have. But in the summer I dont have to travel as far. I have access to a dump truck if I need it for bigger jobs but an insert would be nice to dump off grass and for mulch. I only have 2 years max left of school. So this traveling will all be done soon!

I just went with the srm 225. I figured if i like it i might buy another one (or the next model up) this year or next and if i cant get used to it then at least I will have a backup. But I think I will like it! And I was at the home depot over in hampton on route 8. Its the closest to my house as well as the one on mcknight road but i like the one in hampton better. I hate making trips to the hd for the fact that I always tend to spend money there.
