does this look strong enough for my estin? i would box it in with 3/16" and use some 4 1/2" pipe with 1/4" wall. either stick or mig welded
should it be strong enough, and im a good welder but not an Engineer
what size tires u gonna be runnin? your baggin ur truck, are u lookin to lay? if so i think's ur gonna need a bigger notch then that. i'd go with mig, from what i hear its easier and cleaner. if your a good welder go get some nice box tubing and build a nice step notch, and if your worried about going into the bed you can weld in a cover.
well for right now im gonna have the the stocker tires 205/75/15 but im gonna be getting some 235/45/17s in the back but i really dont wanna cut the bed so if that means not being able to lay then thats ok, yah mig is alot cleaner but all i have at the house it the ol' buzz box but i might just go and weld it in at school.
oh yah im gonna be baggin soon, its just 3" bocks right now
