    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

    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.

    the truck is 13,---lb gvw, after the weight of the truck :8---lb the extra weight of the new walls and bed right around 1500 lbs steel: 6500 left walker mower and all my equipment right around 1500-2000 lbs leaving me with around 4k left for grass (probably keep it less then 2k in grass)
