    Whats with the code names? I use to live in SB, and sometimes worked in GI, and several other towns. Nice job on the van look forward to the finished product.

    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.
