Title: Truck body
Post by: slider on December 21, 2014, 01:50:25 PM
 

 (https://forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/14302/002~30.JPG) A while back someone posted a truck body build project.I thought I would share this project that JMiller did.He built this body and bumper from scratch.As soon as he gets a little further along I will post some pictures of the tilt trailer he is working on.We needed something to move the skid steer with.He has been helping me with the peterbilt project as well.It's nice to have friends like this.al

Good help is hard to find (old saying) but it looks like an exception in this instance.   ;D

That bumper up front does not look like any design I've seen from manufactures. Is it your own design? As I like it better than anything I can purchase would you have drawings? I'm not a fabricator and would need something to show a friend.

Thanks for the kind words, I don't have any drawings or prints on this bumper or bed. I just get something on my mind and build it. I do have a few pictures of the building process, if that helps.

I'm not a fabricator so I might not "get it", but my fabricator friends would almost certainly understand your pictures if your willing to share them.
