Tube bed started, needs more toob, where do I put em?





FYI, I don't want to add more to the stock frame, I plan to back half it at the fuel cell and tie it back into the cage. Thats why I just went straight down under the bed cage to frame for now.

The way you have it all run you are going to be replacing front fenders and box sides do to the lack of an exocage.

But the bed cage sides should be tied in to the shock hoops or frame? To help it from bowing/caving in WHEN you lay it against a tree.


Oh and it all still looks like shit so you should do more practice on my yota

I was kinda thinking this, cept the tape going to the shock hoop I'm gonna run it to the frame so it is straighter and stronger.




Thoughts?


As far as doing another.....not so soon, but ill lend a hand

Connect the bottom of the slider rear to the cage or that point above the slider to the frame.

And something in the center rear roof.

The red and green x at the slider, are you going flat with the back of the cab? And either or or both?

I wouldn't do both at the slider, but one or the other.
