Here are some pics with the bed on:


this is with just the inside cut to clear the notches. The axle comes up to the bed, so I need to take the inside wheel wells outs to make a little room. Ran all the wires, plumbed all the valves etc just a bunch of little crap now till she get going.

If you keep the 7.5 it'll go without a hitch. Now if you run the expo 8.8 the bottom brackets will have to be cut and opened up then re welded, but overall it's pretty straight forward and easy. I started from the outside rear and worked my way forward seemed to go pretty easy. Also the wishbone that connects the axle to the forward cross member the under belly brace of the bed will have to be notched out also some of the bed on the pass side will need to be taken out, I'll get some pics tomorrow showing this.

Also the last pics the bed isn't clearances all the way I'm pretty sure if I clearance it a bit more to allow the wishbone to move up and take the inside wheels out I can lay the bed on the ground
