Refurbishing our new to us flatbed

Recommended Posts

Topic Originally Created by Byddon in July of 2012:


Bought an 08 flatbed with srs in the spring, and have been slowly getting it ready for service.


Not quite finished, but getting close. Still waiting on the truck decals and race ramps so we can mount them. Also have to fab up a telescoping step for easier access onto the bed.

This truck was actually in service less than 3 years from what we can tell, and I dont think all of the rot can be blamed entirely on maintance.

P5250026.jpgMy personal favorite was the hose routing they did on the side puller. The wire rope was rubbing a couple of the lines....
