will be picking up me a aluminum flat bed for my 1970 ford crew 4x4. should look pretty cool. never seen a alum flat bed on old iron before. trying to keep the weight down. won't rust is nice also. if any photo's show them please. curious to see some options on setups. keeping old iron alive one ford at a time.
the bed sits on truck and looks nice. will have to shorten the bed a little for my custom application and will have some photos at end of month. will be taking vacation for this mod to get set correctly. this bed doesn't hang out to far on sides like a normal OEM bed of today. the price was good and now shipping cost to get it to me. I have aluminum welder and shorten to get the correct stance i want. the rims match the look and will have to work on the front bumper. will be sending my headers off to jet hot to get coated with the ceramic look whic matches my bed and rims. sorry no pics and will work on this as soon as i get home. been on the road a lot lately workin makin some bank for toys$$$
I've got a nearly perfect bumpside short bed for sale in the classified section if you are interested. Not sure how to get it to Wyoming, though. Price is negotiable.
thought about OEM bed but will be workin this truck a little and have gooseneck hitch. flatbed alum will be easeir to maintain and not worry about scatching. plus a lighter truck overall. trying to get truck around 5500lbs or less.
got bed shortened. 6' 2" bed now. also having a aluminum fuel tank built, about 45 gallons. I'm not a good aluminum welder and gonna leave this one to the experts. will be done next week. gonna work fenders and hood this weekend, autofab fiberglass off road race stuff. got a few photos of truck in my albums.
got more parts going on truck. hydroboost brakes master cylinder. f-150 steering box. headers mounted on engine and installed. steering box next and fab up. clutch is in centerforce dual friction. and many photos in my albums in aluminum flat bed photos. will have more by weekend. pick up fuel tank tommorrow. got to hurry because heading out of town for big job next couple of weeks.
got the electrical finally working. truck is coming together. work has kept me away from home too much the past 2 yrs. truck should of been done. Next trip home will be getting engine running. She cranks but engine needs a few things still. north dakota is a busy place!
