02 LW300,

That makes a lot of sense 02 LW300! Thank you for letting me know all of this. Now I can disregard the support bar requirements on the jobs I am needing to do and this saves me valuable resources.

Best Regards,

P.S. - How is your new 05 L300? The one with 47k? Miles? How much did you get it for if you don't mind me asking? Was the engine re-built or was it factory?
