That is some nice work on the bed, your body shop does great work! What interior color are you going with?

Have you decided if you will make it to the Nat's?

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

Looks good bro, I raised mine 6", but Im thinking about going more before I weld it all up, as I have plans of being lower in the future

Are you planning on Z'ing the frame ???

67cheby 09-29-2009 01:09 PM

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby

Nice work!

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby
 
I havent finished my bed yet, but when done, the fenders will most likely be touching & I plan to make my own instead of using the stock ones

Heres a link to the page my bed mods are on

Re: Raising the bed floor 67cheby
 
its nice to actually see foto's on how to raise a stock floor allway figured they just welded the floor higher on the sides but they raise the sides as whell ...... makes it look a lot better
