    First pic is welding the rear filler panel in, alot easier on the lift than laying on the floor, the last 2 pics are setting on the truck not bolted on yet, Still have to wire up lights, make filler neck bracket and mud flap brackets. New bins should be here this week. Also installed running boards[nerf bars] to make getting in easier

    Thumbs up very nice.

    yea, not too bad but some thing just seems not right. you better send it to me for closer inspection, should have it back to ya in oh....10-15 years.

    very nice, but it looks like it might be slippery ?? do you do anything to it to make it essayer to walk on if wet ?? or is that not a problem ??
    thanks for the help

    It is diamond plate but it's going to get bins down both sides. They will not need to get in the back much, as everything can be reached from the ground. Made this flat bed because if I put the bins on the sides of the original body my wife [short] could not reach them. It will have 2 bins down the side and one across the front. Really have enjoyed building it, but the spool gun has give me a fit. My youngest son built them a step that fits in the receiver, for his short mom he says. i'll take some pics of that next.

    cool.
    my wife is like 4' nothing so i know about not being able to reach stuff.
    step sound like a good idea.

    what kind of problems did you have with the spool gun ?? and what setup is it ??

    No its not done, still have to make brackets for fuel filler neck, mud flaps etc and have, since i took the pics, installed back up lights. No need for tag light since its still in the original place. I'll take a pic of the wiring when i get done. Its going to use the factory body plug wired into a juction box. If I ever want to take the bed off its one plug and 8 bolts.

    ps; you can comment any time, I might have forgot something Or you might have another idea

    Fun4now, it's a Millermatic pulser. really a 210 with pulsed spool gun. This is the thickest material I have ever used it on and it was at the top of its range it seemed. The problem I had was once in awhile it would weld itself to the tip and birdcage or the other way around. I was using 4043 .035. I tried 5356 and it was all smutty and it didnt have the heat range on my machine the 4043 did. Settings were tap 6 wire speed 100 and -5 on pulse setting. Really is for 3/8 but since welds were short and spaced out this setting worked very good with nice welds except when it would act crazy.

    Cool Nice Truck

    Okay this is what I was going to say this morning but I thought that I would wait until you are finished but you know your right I guess I should have said what I was going to say because you might not have thought of something .Anyway Very nice job.
    The gussets thatís what I do, Not many people do that or should I say don't do that because they forget or don't bother to. Is it 6061 Aluminum? Did you fill in the end of the frame? So when you put the deck on you not only bolt to the sides but also the back?
    I guess later down the road you'll replace the bumper and add mud flaps? It just that, that part looks odd. What did you do about the filler necks? I guess you'll also add a tie down handrail on two sides and build a bulkhead at the front? Did you lay down a thin piece of styro foam between the deck and the frame? (The same kind that you would use between wood and concrete.) You used channel to bolt the deck down why not plates? Itís just that it looks like you used 3" channel to bolt down with and a plate could have been 8"x12" with three bolts on the bottom and more area to weld the top. I thought you were going to use a vibration mount front or back? Are you going to put down a none slip paint or tape for the deck?
