Interesting. I know P.I.E. & Matlack (and many other Western US carriers) used set-ups like this.

that's going to be a nice build. a pull behind pup tank trailer would complete it. by the way, does anyone else look beyond the project into the background? because it looks like bull nose kw back there.
