    That is extremely wide compaired to the cab. In Michigan that would be illegal without a tonnnnn of DOT tape, yellow clearance tape on each corner and red on the back and back sides.

    Id be careful! Looks great though

    Don't mean to disrespect, but that whole thing looks weak. Framing wise I mean. But I don't really know your situation so I maybe wrong.

    It's not done. I'm still waiting on air bags to install and I have to build a spray both for the truck.

    Still would like to know what gauge of steel you're using. Also, the width might be concerning. I can see 6 inches each side of the cab. Anything more than a foot, then you'd be better off going with 80" wide on a half ton.

    If you read post #17 you can see what steel I used.
