well i'll start by saying i know that there are several posts on various diffrent web sights about bobbing a bed.. and i relized that none of them really went into detail about the small stuff.. like measurments, were, how much, exc.. so i thought that i'd TRY and do a post with more details instead of the usual " this is my truck, this is my truck after cutting, this is it all welded back togther"
so here we go.. mind the typo's

more steps 15-20

actually after doing all the cutting .. i reccomend measuring at liest 1" to 1-1/2" from the spot weld A location because the cut was right on the cross member. and was kinda difficult to place a flush scrap under the bed to take up some of the gap made by using a cut off wheel.. i had to use a cut off wheel because the spare tire cross member was only 1/2" below the bed floor

sorry about all the dame typos in the photos.. i just noticed them.. (boy i feal stupid)


not done but looking good.. i ended up not using the stock bumper because it didnt fit quite how id like it to , and a friend offerd to buy it for 60 bucks, so ill sold it and will be using a 2x4 1/4" rectangler tube that will wrap around the sides.. for the bottom seam. i gound it smooth and filled it with fast and firm seam sealer which worked perfectlly.. remember ill also be spraying in 1/4" line-x bedliner.

thats all the pics that i have for today.. ill take a pic of the inside of the bed after the seam sealer.. and i have not finshed the outside body work yet.. because ive been working on shortening my bed rack.. actually the bed rack was harder to do than the bed bob.. :lmao:

That is pretty awesome. The truck has a similar silhouette to a full size short bed pick up.

TIMZTOY 06-21-2009 03:02 PM

yea, its not even finshed, but it dose look quite good. and gets alot of looks..just about everyone who see's it dosent even know what i did to it, they just know that somthing is diffrent. the notice the spare tire sticking out but dont notice the seam.. hell i havent even done any body work yet.. it is alot smother than what i have posted.. iv'e spent some time grinding it down and leveling it out.. but no bondo yet:hill:
