That is some awesome welding work Brook. Looks like it was done by machine!

Some of the best pictures of your work that I have seen yet. Great detail in fitting everything up. Can't wait to see the finished product.

I dont know that anyone in AK stocks DOM, but I do know that most of the steel supply stores dont even know what DOM is.

I've been using A53A-E 1.5" sch 40 pipe for several years now, and havent had any problems with it, so thats what Im using for the rear half project.

Im using an ESAB Migmaster 250. No frills, just the basic stuff like your standard Miller 250. Some of the welds that are shrouded by the cab will have to be done with stick. Nothing else will get into such tight places.

For the DOM, isn't that what Youngs/Six States uses on driveshafts? Where are they getting it?

hmmmmm, I think they are also using a special version of DOM....some kind of "seamless" (even though it is not truly seamless) tubing? Not sure.....

I found some DOM up there at one of the smaller suppliers once...but it was very limited in quantity.

Just a reminder guys.....If you need DOM for something (For whatever) and want to pay shipping I will gladly go get some and send it. I get steal way cheaper in the midwest than the guys on the coast but shipping is going to kill you....Unless you just want 5 feet or something.

I used 1.5 sch40 for the chuggy. If I was to do it over again I would use 1.25 Sch 40 for most of it and 1.5 for the big structural members.

I've picked up DOM at Greer Tank. I don't think they stock any but if I order some I can usually pick it up the next week.

What about your little machine, a battery charger, and some NR211? I've got the big 300A mig machine but I end up using the little one because the gun is so much smaller.

Yah you can order it from a half dozen places in town and Greer is a good one for it. However...........What did you pay?

Hell I will overnight as much as you want.....just show me the money.

The pad eyes are a bit much, but they will allow for a nice and stout gin pole set up.

Today I built the main structure of the bed, and made one stringer from the back of the cab to the end of the bed. All in all a good day. I spent too much time making the one stringer fit well, but what the heck.

Again, all sch 40 1.5" pipe.

The rest of the tubing will be 1.25" sch 40, and 1" sch 40.

I was going to make the stringers that go from the back of the cab to the bed, go down on a steeper angle and connect to the frame instead of the back of the bed, but after some testing with the ol hilift, I decided otherwise....

Really nice...Great job of tying all the points together...

On a side note...How thick is the rubber between the lugs on your tires...Do you think a little grooving in between them and on the side walls would help them flex...?
Just thinking of Grants little experiment...

P.S. What's the upper hitch mount for...?

the upper mount is for the rear winch should I ever need the clearance. and so I can mount it in a more usable location for the gin poles.

I dont have a tire flexability problem.

Lookin good.

Once you get all you bracing in thats going to be a solid rear. How about running a little rail around the bottom perimeter to keep stuff on the flat bed and offer lots of tie down points.

Didnt get much done over the weekend cause of the Holidays, but I did make some progress...

The gusset that covers the bottom receiver hitch is all 1/8" A36 plate, and the two angled peices with three holes in them are 1/4" A36. The holes are for shackle storage, and for securing the truck to the trailer.
