Pics of the truck in holiday parade

For the last few years I have been putting together a float for a spring parade and was asked to do one for the Norfollk holiday grand illumination parade this year. It was a pretty cool experience, I could not believe how many people turn out for it. The entire route was packed with people shoulder to shoulder right up to the buildings. The kids loved the truck and I think I must have heard "Look mommy, monster truck" almost every block. We had 15 people on the float and some of the turns were a bit nerve racking, but it all went well. As always driving the 5 miles back to the warehouse through town was also interesting.

Hitching up at 2pm for a 7pm parade, It was a full day. I had made the majority of the float over the past few years so it just took adding the lights this year.

nice truck... god i bet turning that thing was a chore!!! haha.. ya i've been in a few parades myself. the first time i was in a parade was when i was in army cadets when i was younger. got to "march" through town.. but now 2-3 of us lawnmower racers get together and run the parade here in town at our local fairs. its really hard on the mowers going that slow but whatever... next year im gonna pass on the little trailer and sign that we tow around to someone else so i can take the JD so i can **** around a little bit..haha

its fun though.... sometimes... most times its long and boring. how long was it? the local parade in town is roughly 1-1.5 hours long. then the other one (thats 20 mins away) is roughly 2 hours long.. i like them because its the only time you can legally take **** on the road and not get dinged by the cops!!! haha

So sexy. How did you get the roof rack to fit, and what kind of make/model is it?
