That should take care of any careless individuals behind you.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Having some vehicle carelessly pull in to me (I back in 90% of the time) and break some lights is not a good thing, so how to blend practicality and keep the look right?

Wanting it to be both cool and different (of course) I rolled around to the idea of nerf bars and what better than a worn axle out of the 9 ¾ rear end?! I was also thinking about some kind of step up (on to the bed) and happened to have the exactly perfect length scrap piece of ¼” x 6” flat bar to fit right up- it was a sign!

The first pic has the flat bar up there temporary and vertical axle pieces just sitting there. Got to look at this for about a week and a half deciding how to connect all that up and whether or not I actually wanted the “step plate”. Here’s what I ended up with… (Yes I rounded off the corners of the step plate after all was said and done. )
Looks strong as hell Charlie!

Nothing picture worthy but I finally got the cab bolted down for good which is a big psychological milestone. Decided to follow along the original lines that used welting, utilizing a long piece of heavy 2" ratchet strap that I found on the highway by my house a little while back.

(The fun part was getting my 7 and 9 year old grand sons to help lift the cab enough to slip that in there. )

Early on (after cab floor framing) I marked the top of the frame for mounting bolts, drilled and then welded nuts on the underside before boxing the frame.
It ain't rubber but it's something. Maybe cut down on squeaks to some degree.
