This is really cool! I'm anxious to see the final product. Your fabrication skills are amazing. Are you going to make the dump bed as well?

the extra floor braces are installed and the sheet metal is tacked on! will get pics uploaded tonight if i find time.

everything has been fabricated my self, my brother helped cut the metal while i welded and also helped install everything(very heavy). the welder friend stops by every couple weeks to check how things are going.

some of the ideas came from http://70.85.43.66/showthread.php?t=225105 and from http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=217235

work i did today

added a flat bar on the end of the dump bed to make the grass go away from the truck. so i'll have to just fold it out when i go to dump.

tomorrow i'll be working on the main door for the dump. im putting the aluminum skin i cut off the truck on the door so it all looks the same.

What's an awesome idea. Very creative. How much extra weight does it add to the truck? I would think that it would be very over weight when loaded.
