That is one of the nicest looking rear frame sections i have seen. great welds, and everything is cleaned up nice. I also love the way you put the ford in the step on the bed that is a killer move that i have never seen before! it looks great i hope i get a chance to see this truck when it is finished probally in mini truckin' or something. great work

The back of my frame has been a very useful jig for cutting and welding! Lol

truck looks wicked, i can't wait to see the final final product... just curious, with all this extra stuff, nd the frame work, how much extra weight is it looking like this truck is going to have?

I'm not sure on the weight. I was actually just thinking the same thing when I welded that bracket to the frame.

But anyways, I got the bed in primer last night!

I test fit the bed with the battery, air tank and compressor in place. Everything cleared. Just cleared. Lol. The body lines matched up pretty good too!

Yeap, cut into pieces. It had some bad crinkle on the passenger side wheel well. Then when I was grinding the welds on the fuel door filler piece, I overheated it and warped the bed side pretty bad. So I got mad and trashed it. It was bitter sweet tho because thats what motivated me to get another bed and raise the bed floor.

I just got the air suspension back together and functional. The back is about 80 percent done. I still have to figure out a fuel filler. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get the engine bay finished and get the engine running and rings seated. It's all coming together..

i say trapdoor in the bed of the truck, no ***** or handles, and completely flush, just have an overhang from the hinges, a small section behind the hinges you can push down to pop it up
