    Thought I would post a few pics of how I have my cube truck setup. I am a retrofit installer out of the state of Washington. Let me know what you think, and how does yours compare to mine? Josh

    This first pic is my brake setup:



    Here is my gas piping stuff, crappy, rainy day here just north of Seattle:



    Here's a blurry one just hitting it from another angle:

    Looks good. My truck is very similar except it's always trashed. BTW, do you plan on keeping it all neat like that or will it get trashed like mine?

    Nice pics of the inside of you truck, but a little blurry. I too drive a box truck 16 foot with boot over cab. Mine is set up kind of similar. I have a hard time keeping it clean because I do new const. along with retro. I saw the power line for the threader just wandering how you have it wired up? Is it hard wired similar to a camper where you have to plug up the truck from the customer's outlet?

    Slick rick,
    Look just to the left of the paper towels in pic #2. That is the cord to the pipe machine which is plugged into the last receptacle of the circuit which then loops back around the van where it is completed at the other side to a power strip which is wired to a cord on a reel that is used to plug in at customers' houses.

    ok I set up two of our trucks with brakes and pittsburg machines the brakes are on the side wall of the truck on a lazy susan shop made with a 4x6 cut table with metal storage in it that way brake is out of way when u dont need it. We use 2003 17 foot chevy box vans also really nice advertisment when rolling down the road.
