Yup, the same reason I don't let anyone drive my rides without accompanying them.
Same lesson learned.

Yeah I don't even think my dad has driven this and it was his truck originally lol. That's why I didn't go back over there. I should have shown him how to do it. I don't think it's that difficult. But he doesn't drive it all the time. I'll take the blame for it
I got it fixed I put 100 plus miles on the truck today, so happy to have this thing back on the road

That's irritating, but I agree not worth fighting about. You know how that would probably go.

The truck looks great!

Your right. I fixed it and telling them wouldn't do anything. Just sucks you put so much effort into something and people don't care

Like how you handled it LB. Fixed it, avoided unpleasant discussion, and moved on. 👍

So I used Lincoln mark 7 bags on this truck when I built it years ago. They have served me well but one started slowly leaking the other day. I ordered new ones but to no surprise the are cheap Chinese poop and don't work like the factory ones. So I did what I should have done when I got the truck back on the road earlier this spring and I replaced them with a normal set. I figured out an easy way to plate the hole where the Lincoln bag mounted so I could bolt a double bellow bag into it and then built a coupler to attach it to my lower links. Actually didn't take me very long to do and the truck surprisingly handles way better than I did before. Those Lincoln bags were really big and soft and they actually stretched out a lot so the truck had more of a softer swaying ride to it. With this shorter little bit stiffer bag it handles a lot better which is perfectly fine with me
