    More. Painted and did some wiring to my home made center console switch box. This will control the 6 head strobes front and rear independently as well as the "tractor lights" and "off-road" lights. I also have my plow controls mounted on here.

    Got it mounted on the truck and wired up (what a pain that was). Anyway, the holes I drilled in the plate for the bolts does not work. The head if the nuts or bolts from under the bed does not fit. The heads hit on the sides. Only the front bolt works. So I had to make a sandwich plate and bolt assembly the resembles a back rack bolt set up. I was able to find some bolts laying around and make this thing work. I just need to get some washers .

    I was going to ask you why you didn't just use the plasma cutter to make the cutouts, but then i popped over to check out your website, and thought "ah hah, he sure does like precise, quality work." That is some nice work done at your shop.

    Thanks, but that is not my shop, all the work done is at my house in my garage. I consider myself lucky.

    Nice job. If anyone noticed in the finished pic he used a chain link welded to each upright on the bed side to tie stuff to. These are cheap & work great. Always a good idea to add acouple to a project like this.
