probably already going to, but are you bracketing the tub to the chassis? Just curious.

Yes. Problly 2 "L" brackets on each side. welded to the bottom of the tub and bolted into the frame. That way if you took the tub off it would self align when you put it back on.

my unsolicited advice. provide a plate/dispersion point for the mounts to absorb the vibration and not fatigue the bed. you would want a 3:1 ratio probably on the pad. Meaning, if you are going to place 2" strap/bracket on the bed that is 6" long, you would at least a 6" plate for the tab to mount to, then that would be mounted to the bed. Capiche?

you might want to also have it be half the thickness of the strap to help dissapate, and have some give.

ideally, your buffer will be twice the thickness of the sheet metal bed, and the strap double the buffer.
