    If I remember correctly, Cox told me several years ago that tongue weight on a bumper pull is maxed at 20%, and on a gooseneck it's maxed around 25%.

    Thats roughly the wait difference.

    Looks like I would have to make a divider door I can't find them anywhere on the net. Its a good idea

    You just weld in angle iron and drop in 2x lumber. My last truck had it. It was great

    You got any pictures of yours?

    I was thinking of a swinging door but that sounds much simpler.

    You want it as smooth as possible to keep product from hanging up on it. Their last few bodies came from dejana. If I get a chance I will slide by there and take a few picks on Monday as I will be in that area.
