Actually no to both. First, it's a conventional stick built so no trusses. Just had to remove the floor overhead. No structural issues. Next, if it was a truss construction, I would have been screwed. To walk underneath, the top of the cage is almost @ 11 1/2ft. So, a truss construction @ 10 ft would have required some structural engineering and rebuild. That's one of the reasons I did conventional when I built it.

Almost John. And I agree you are almost ready.
Top off the oil in the t-case.
Finish clearancing one driveshaft yoke.
Check diff fluids.
Do a once over on everything else underneath.
Pull drive flanges & double check that the wheel bearings are not wet. (last 2 trips were in Canada with water)

After that;
Check all fluids topside
Install tool box
Install spare tire carrier
Install new HAM Coax & antenna
Pack a few little items.

So, if you want to bring yours over to put on the hoist next week it will be free.
