Better stock up on it now. It's going to be taking another big price-hike real soon. Mark my words.

*sigh* Gas tanks in the bed. :word: he refuses to get a fuel cell or something to make it look halfway decent. thats my buddies truck. i have pleaded for him to do something with it but have yet for it to happen. :think:
anyways, this may contradict wht i said, :thud: but Joe since i have no access to a welder what would you charge to relocate my tank to the bed but sheetmetal over it giving it a clean look. im tired of dragging through the fuel tank...i do it at least once a week. cant be safe! :read:
how many differnt supports did you put in! And how did you re mount them to the frame?

we decided to Ecoat the the bottom of all the panels and the bed we trimed the bed down a little and just plated over stock bed to keep the strength he didnt have much money to spend to cut it all out and go that far. On the lower panels we bent the edges to make it stronger and to wrap around stock metal

yes we are working on moving into a 8000SQ shop hopefully in nov. And we build a large frame table so frame work will be much easier on me now LOL
