Drool.

Speed makes money.

I still wish you had moved up here. We could start a Euker night.

That's how I roll.

I am working on the cab at home and the bed at work. I should be able to get the bed all welded together at work. Then carry it home to fit it to the back of the cab within the next few weeks.

I am trying to locate a shop in or around Nashville that can E-coat the bed assembly. E-coating is a process used by car manufactures to coat all sides of a bare metal part. I want the bed to be dipped so the corrosion protection can get in all the crossmembers and places I cannot get with a primer gun.

The 2 different sheet metal shops I went to said they couldn't make the small bend/joggle near the top of the panel. Maybe because I am using 16ga steel.

Your bed sides look good.

I took them a test piece to compare to from the leftover section of tub. He said no at first. But, 20ga is a bit easier to mess with. I used 16ga on the cab panel. I do not see how they could have bent it out of that. I wanted 18ga, but he did not have it on hand. So, 20ga it is. If it dents to easy I will just bolt on some Aluminum armor.

Thanks, I really want this dude to look like Jeep built it.

Bed floor will be a cut down floor out of a full size donor of some kind. And the wheel tubs I will order from LMC. I plan on cutting down a set of 74-87 Chevy truck wheel tubs. They were bolt in and are only 50 each. They have a pretty good look to them. And with JK axles I will not need as much inner wheel house clearance. Therefore gaining bed space.

Updizzle....

Here is a sneak peek of the bed.

Pay no attention to the shelf between the sides holding the bed together. That's temporary in the tail gate opening to get some rough measurements. The wheel openings will also be determined after the bed is mated to the cab and frame.

All the rest of the pictures are being uploaded now. I will post them on page one for easier viewing .
