Designed a form to press an indent to flush mount these tie downs in the floor to keep the bed functional yet custom







This flat floor is little too boring if you ask me so wanted to do something subtle and add a little strength to the panels and heres what i came up with.

They originally had a set of 4wd fenders they picked up but they were pretty beat on the lower mounting areas so went to 2 different picknpulls and managed to find fenders and picknpull had half off fenders so win win!




bed splash guards/stiffners


Unfortunately had to revisit the rear axle, when i had to switch the disc back to drums i attempted to put hardbody drums on the 620 axle, now the fact is the backing plates do fit with the axles but after a slow test drive i was getting some pretty bad noise so after inspection and disassembling the rear end there was a few problems, and my dumb ass threw away the 620 brake parts years ago. and guess what the backing plates are near impossible to find besides on another 620 axle. so after searching had a buddy send me backing plates from Florida ordered all new shoes, drums, wheel cylinders, ect. got most of it assembled and its spinning true and good just have to button it up, re attach brakes lines and get them blead.





We are up to date! Just got to get the rear end finalized, new alternator, finish up the bed, and get it taken to the exhaust shop. Then get some test drives done to make sure all is working order and back to the customer!

Attention to detail is top notch! I love that you're continuing to release hardbody parts all the time. I've been super happy with my bolt-in notches I got a few years back.

Splash guards both in front and behind the wheel on the bed, also made bolt on fender guards to keep the jam alot cleaner.




Now if i pre planned a bit more i could of sheet metaled the entire wheel opening to be closed off, which i didn't so i decided to somewhat replicate how the front factory inner tubs have the material to keep debris and major water out of the engine bay but with the rear. Used rubber sheeting off of amazon and installed nutserts for 1/4x20 bolts, will be swapping the hardware with black and using a larger fender washer to clamp it down a bit better.


Still having brake issues... Got new master cylinder and all new rear brakes, have bleed the system multiple times and still getting a soft pedal. thought the diaphragm in the booster was bad so decided to swap that out, which improved but still not solid. so decided since everything else is new now, would be a good idea to swap for new pads, rotors, and calipers up front. got everything apart just waiting for the new to arrive. will be pulling MC back off to re bench bleed and get the system bleed again and see if we have improvement...




getting bed mounts finalized and some other odds and ends so did another fit up and got some pics outside. Still need to get exhaust raised until i can lay the truck all out..

Finally got the breaks in working order! so it was time to start finishing the bed, i made the top panels awhile back but had to come back and drill about 100 some odd holes to plug weld, rosette weld whatever you call them lmao. All the panels and framing were sprayed with weld through primer where they would not be seen ever again to hopefully prevent rusting.


Got all the panels welded in and ground down, wanted to do one last bed fit up before priming to make sure everything was still in working order.





After the test fit, i got all the materials ordered i needed. Im just priming all the bare metal spots top and bottom, and then raptor lining the bottom. The owners will be getting the top bed lined after paint..
Materials used for the bottom was some inexpensive sem seam sealer, Tried some eastwood epoxy primer, and finished up with 2 coats of raptor liner. I will be sealing the top next weekend with the same eastwood epoxy primer, and will be trying out some 2 part 3M panel bond for all the seams.
