Project Submitted: 11/10/2016
My customer brought us a new 5500 Ram chassis cab and wanted a full withd tool box and a 10' dump bed with a hitch and bumper and FMVSS LED lighting
We built the tool box with 1/8" 5052 aluminum using our Cincinnati shear and press brake. Most of the welding was done with a Miller Dynasty 350 but we also used a 350P. Most of the bed was built with the 350P and a Invision 350Mpa and a XR wire feeder. Both mig guns were Aluma Pro's. We did use the Dynasty wherever we needed Tig welding. We built a 304 SS box to hold the hydraulic tank and pump. The Venturo hoist and hinge was bolted to the 6" aluminum frame. We used SS rods and hardware for the tailgate hinge and latch assembly
