Oh yeah, I had to put new brakes and tires on it too...that was fun$$$$$$. I think when they stripped er down they even gave me scabs for tires. There is no way they drove it on those eggs.

First of all....ignore some of the odly placed photobucket edit swirls..stupid slow computer!


If you look close you can see some flat steel bolted to the back of the bed. That is where I welded everything to....so it can be un-bolted. The green steel is just tacked in place to help keep things square.

And those tail lights, and marker lights will stay there for when it is in "flatbed" mode, and when the dovetail is on you can still see them through the mesh. Kind of a neat look if you ask me.
