Range Extender Genset on Sparrow4019 viewsThis was my 1st attempt at mounting the Genset. Turned out to hang a little too low with both me and the Genset. It would hit the ground when going over big bumps.

Truck as purchased5654 viewsThis is the truck when I got it home. At this time, it does NOT have a transmission.
It weighs 5940 lbs. (It does have some amount of Gas, and a big toolbox)
First thing I did after getting it home was --- break the ignition switch. sigh. I had to drill it out and replace it.

Version 1 Genset Rack3635 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
