Do you already have a buyer for the old gauges?

I have not put them up for sale yet. I was going to try and sell them as a package first. All 9 gauges that is.

finally got all the panels made for the inside of the bed. Just need to make the center supports from the bed to the frame and the fuel door then weld it all up and seam seal. Went by the painter today and the cab is looking really nice. They should have all the color on it by the new year.

Are you not worried about the flat sheet of the bed not being strong enough?

Nope. Frame work for floor is 14g 1x1 square steel which will be tied to the frame of the truck in 9 to 10 locations and the floor is 16g sheet. That is pretty dang stiff in a free / flat state and it is thicker than stock. I still have some 3/4 square cross bars to add but the framework more then makes up for the ribs they put in the stock floor which makes them stiff. When I am finished with it; it should be able to take more load then a stock bed. Really doesn't matter though, I'm not sure it will see much more then a cooler and some chairs. But if there is that rare occasion I'm on a trip and i find something like say, a 6bt cummins engine (1200lbs), it will easily take it. Then there is always the air bags to help a little
