This is really good advise, like I said before, How much will it flex when you have done all the frame mods? Some rubber bushings may be all you need.Joaquin Suave said:Call me daft...
But wouldn't it be wise to get your body mods finished & 4x4 driveline in, then....
Test just how far your frame flexes, then...
Design the box mounting system???
That way you will be able to accurately determine:
* The sweep of the cab-over part of the box, over the cab.
* The flexable "pass-through" connection between cab & box
* The most cost effective mounting system THAT WEIGHS THE LEAST.
I wonder how many "expedition" vehicles there are out there with elaborate mounting systems....Just so that the owner can say "NO! THIS IS NOT AN RV! SEE! I'VE GOT A 3 POINT MOUNTED BOX!"
I'd sure hate to see you throw good money after bad.

Hi BigFord,bigford said:That is an outstanding rig you are building. My .02 here: My F-700 is a double-frame truck and flex is limited. Running the bags in the rear, you will probably have to bottom one of them out to see any major flex as they "give" more than the leaf springs do. The sway bar is going to be punished.:wings:
