Looks good and very red. Is that 2x2 and 2x4 tubing? How much will the bed weight?
Thanks! The bed will be all 2x4 tubing, and the cab part will be the 2x2.
I have know idea how much it will weigh, it won't be too terribly heavy though, I'm guessing just about as heavy as the old body and everything, or a little less.
Around here, if your house is on 5 acres or more, 75% of them have a big shop next to it, and the main use of them is just somewhere to have a few cold beers, haha! Of course they are not built for that purpose, thats just usually what ends up happening
What are you're plans for wheel wells? Is there enough room between the deck and wheels to do without them?
I'm pretty certain that there is plenty of room without wheel wells. After we got the bed set on the frame we put the front end loader of my stepdads big John deere tractor on the rear bumper and pushed down on it, the frame only moved at the most 1/4 of an inch before it picked the front wheels of the tractor off the ground. The only thing I may not be able to haul would be a load of round bales of hay, but that may be a good thing in the sense that I won't be recruited to haul hay, lol!
