GoldenSahara00 Using pipe or tube?

sucks about inspection, I have a place that will pass you though

3/16 seems a little thick for the steel plate, did you already buy it?

Pank,

Sounds like a solid plan, just make sure you clean and prep all the surfaces for weldling. Nothing like forming metal and having the welds not some out good and have to start over. Again, the same thing with paint, clean all the metal with acetone or mineral spirits so the bed liner sticks.

I look forward to seeing the finished product. Let me know if you have any questions!
