    Um, genius, I WAS PARAPHRASING CLINT EASTWOOD, not you. And YES, I know you were doing the airline stewardess "Buh Bye" at the plane door skit from SNL.

    My last comments were not to you, they were light hearted comments to FWDbuff. But I guess you weren't smart enough to figure that out.

    I eagerly await your next attempt at being clever...because so far all they have been is failed attempts. By the way, are you sure you can talk on here? You might post something Pierce wants kept secret. HEY, maybe they didn't want you to tell anyone they were selling tucks to China...FOR SHAME!!

    Either way, Have a nice day!

    Speaking of boring. Why don't you just ask him for a date and get it over with.

    Way to welcome a new forum member, by the way. No wonder it has been so dead around here lately.

    Stop reading what I post, or put me on ignore, if I bother you that much. It really is that simple.

    What new forum member? johnsb has been here longer than you have.
    Funny thing is people get called out on their BS all the time on here. I guess maybe you hadn't noticed.

    And I have to call you out for your BS and calling me a liar. If you think my reason for posting the pics is not valid, I really don't have a problem with you and others saying you think it would be okay and Pierce wouldn't mind. It's not going to change my mind, but I don't have a problem with you saying it.
    But when you call me a liar based on bad info or your uninformed opinion, I will set the record straight. I don't care if I come across as clever to you. I'm not in the habit of needing approval from someone who acts like a jerk and attacks me for something that didn't even concern them in the first place. I guess I'm still amazed that you would make such a big deal out of something so trivial as me not posting some pics no matter what the reason. It's not even your molehill to make a mountain out of.

    You suggested I quit reading your posts because I posted something you didn't like. That works the other way too. You could ignore the OP or you could ignore my posts. However, you choose to read and comment anyway. So will I. It really is that simple.

    Denny got tenderized too, all about the head. I remember a relative of his later called him Reginald DENTY.

    That's a nice truck, although I'm not a fan of that style of rearview mirror. What's the spec's on it? Tank size, foam? Some of our guys wanted a reel, but I convinced them that the cost savings of a bumper line would be worth it.

    What am I looking at in the second picture? Is it a compartment with both rollup, and swing-out doors? Is that so you have more vertical space to mount hand tools?

    Thats a compartment with a roll-up door with two swing-out tool boards on it. One board is hinged on one side, while the other is hinged on the opposite side.

    These two pumpers have 500 gal water, 250 gal class "B" foam. Husky 160 foam system. Elkhart 3,000GPM remote control deck gun. As far as the reel line, i don't believe there is big price difference between the jump line and reel. We started with jump lines and have since gone back to reel lines. Just our preference. Basically, we are trying to cram 10Lbs of S**t into a 5Lbs bag. As far as the mirrors, we discussed going to the side mount remote, but the guys all said they like the praying mantis mirrors. I'm not real crazy about the look but it grows on you. With The Port and 10 refineries these trucks can come in handy. They were purchased through Port Security grant. We have been very fortunate with grants.
