Hey peps, this is what I got done on my day off this week. Rounded out the rear corners of the bed with steel and covered with everyones favorite, bondo!
Great inovation, I always wondered how you big guys drove S10s, now I know. One question though, won't the vibes from the road eventually crack the seam between the cab and the box? Did you tack weld the nuts/bolts so they won't back out, or safety wire or....nicoloyd said:Thanks for all the props. Right now I'am driving it around as a walk through in the traditional sense, using a solid sided cap to cover the bed.
As soon as I get my hands on a extended cab's roof area, I will be fabricating a removable top for my ride. To answer your question, yes it will always have that hole cut through the bed, otherwise my big azz wouldn't fit in it. I'am 6'3" 350lbs.
P.S. I posted a photo-chopped pic of how my custom top will look once finished. It's in the photoshop forum.
I kind of assumed your cab and bed were molded together, bolted, and then filled in, my mistake.nicoloyd said:I'am really not sure of what seam you are refering to blackzq8stepside, the bed is just bolted up to the cab with a rubber seal in between. I have strengthened the bedsides with steel bracing. If you are refering to the removable top, check my post in "Photoshop" forum to see more details. Thnks.
