No code words here. GI is what we/everybody call it. Grand Island is the name of the town.

Well, it still looks the same but I did get some more stuff gathered.

-I found some nice red marker lights for the rear of the sides. (13led each!)
-Got some more D-rings to mount crap down.
-I went to Menards and got a few new superCrappy gas cans. *mine have seen better days*

And between dodging rain drops today I was either mowing or watching my kids.

I will be mowing in the AM once again Thanks Rain! And won't really be able to work on it this weekend between my wife working and us going to a wedding.

The time I have available to work on this totally sucks.

Safety chains seem like a great idea to me. I still think the ramp should stop at 90 degrees, not keep folding forward...

It will stop at 90, for all but two days of the week. I will have it forward when I go down the highway. I mow upwards of 30+ miles in three different directions from the town I live in and there is no way I'm not going to try and squeeze some extra mpg outta this thing. It is a no brainer that a shorter gate at highway speeds would be best, in my book anyways.
