you forgot your mesh in the back window- unless you wanted a slider anyways!!!! Nice work by the way; I moonlighted for a fab shop in town and appreciate your fenders;)

Thanks Cat.

Actually the mesh as you call will be a CNC plasma cut design, It will be a bolt on in case if the rear window is broken and needs replaced (don't want to pull a bed to replace the glass) .. same goes with the LP as well, the trap door that gives you access to the truck/trailer electrical is located on top of the LP [coffee]

I build truck bodies and trailers for a living and I KNOW how much work went into that. You certainly pay attention to detail!

OK, then it passes with FLYING colors then[laugh] The last one we built was all aluminum for a dually- turns out this new calcium cloride(ice melt) they put on our roads doesn't like AL much[yuk] We had to rip it off and paint it; whats the fun of having AL if it doesn't look like it[duhhh]

I really like your boxes- and a person REALLY shouldn't HAVE to plan the "next" LP failure[duhhh] DODGE, are you listening[guitar]

NICE flatbed!!!

Question... what's the spacing from the top of your tires to the underside of the deck? I'm still trying to figure that out for the deck I want to build...

Rob,
here is the link to the C&C upfitters guide, if your a standard cab w/bed you could probably still use some of the data... the bottom of my bed is 9" above the frame..that is max tire travel listed in a crab situation according to the dimensions / Views and chart section..

Very nice work! Like the color choice, it shows off the workmanship much better than black would.

how did you attached the bed to the frame, with the restrictions by dodge of drilling or welding top and bottom flanges? very attractive bed.

I used all existing holes, the upfitters guide gives you the specifics on what you can or can not do.. When I get some extra time I'll post a slide show of the project.

Very nice setup.

Looking at your pictures reminds me how much I enjoyed hunting in NW Colorado. I just love that area. We hunted for 10 years there between Douglas Pass, Rangely and the Utah Boarder.
