John came over today and we worked on the frt. 

Rex I have raised it to at least 3" at the frt axle and 3.5 at the rear axel. It will continue to rise especially past the rear water tank.  Andy and I BingEngineered the rear frame and chute mount.

Hey Sparky Bill, put a board on top of the rails for your butt and feet, will simulate the room you need for firesuit. 
What are you bringing to speedweek?
