Hey man do you have and pictures of the under framing of your flatbed and maybe some dimensions? Mostly length, width and maybe where you started your taper in the back? Love the flat bed and would love to mimic yours but I want to make sure I can still throw a dirtbike back there.
I’ll try to as soon as I can get it on the lift at work . Really I used all the stock locations for bolting and used 4x4’s running across the frame and spaced the front of the bed up with a 2x4 running the length of the 4x4 . After that it was laying the runners down . I’m going to be soon redoing the bed top with the plastic like boards for decking. Possibly wood frame still depending on if a can score or not at the metal shop in the scrap section . Usually do though . Only charge .50 cents a lbs for steel

How are the rpms on the highway w/ the smaller tires? Idk if i want to get small tires when I lower. I don't like the small tire look, but yours don't look too small. They look....right? Good? They look like they belong there really

At 80mph I’m doin about 2700 rpm which isn’t to bad actually . I really don’t push it past 85 cause my gauge only reads that fair and I broke the last cluster doin that with just the auto . I actually did about the same rpm speed with the 4r70w

Jeez at 80 in my 4 cylinder I'm about like 3000-3500 lol. That's on slightly bigger tires than stock
