    I'm very happy. I was going to take it to the dump.

    If you can use a screw driver AND replace o rings, you’re my hero

    So being a man is a hero?

    Just ask Damon what made him want to start that project? He won't take my suggestion.

    I don’t really care about looks, reliability and serviceability are the things that matter most to me.

    Those aren't o rings. Compression fittings with brass compression sleeve things.

    I want both. I want a professional appearance too. I know it has little to do with function but I feel it is representative of the quality of the build. I want anyone that sees the unit to realize its not some garage build.

    Could you just slap components on a fame and it work as well? Sure but it doesn't instill any confidence to the casual observer.

    It would be nice for evening and night work. I like it. :cool:

    O Rings sounded better than rubber compression things to me.

    I'm aware of several "pretty" truckmounts in the dustbins of our industry.

    DEPENDABILITY trumps everything else.

    I agree however there are several dependable truck mounts that look like sin being sold too.

    Ugly runs clear to the bone. :winky:
