I guess you do get what you pay for, it will be fine after a little body work and filler for my truck. If you are building a really nice truck spend a few hundred more and get a quality bed.

After measuring carefully several times, the bed will have to be shortened 27" and will end up 53" long. Have to remove 6" from the width.Attachment 144110

You can see the misalignment on the top bolt, no way to get a nut on it.

2 days after taking these photos i fell down the front steps while pressure washing and screwed up my back muscles. Been a week and i still can't do anything, Doc says it's gonna take some time to heal.

Don't know why pics didn't show up.
Click on the attachments and they will
I like big photos

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Bruno, I hope you are healing and get to cutting up that brand new bed. Your truck is going to be one fine, unique piece when done.
