Welds don’t have to be pretty so long as they hold.View attachment 191639
List of materials
3 pcs of 1" x 48" x .125" wall square tubing
2 pcs of 1.5" X 24" x .250" wall square tubing
Short piece of chain to limit dump angle
I still need to pick up a couple 5/16" pins for the dump pivot, I just used some bolts temporarily
In all this I've figured out my welding skills need some work, it's been about 4 yrs since I've fabbed up anything, by the time I was done it was coming back to me......LOL
Even with the tire, you still have plenty of room left over. Like the bolts welded in for the lever catch.
Nice work sir! Having the box on this is awesome, I've put mine to work quite a bit already.I finally got mine installed the way I want it. The beds sits kinda high and doesnt tilt all the way up but it was the compromise I wanted so I could remove it in about 10 sec and use the factory rack when needed. It is strong enough that I can sit on the tailgate and doesnt move at all. Took some time to get all the measurements but just basically need some 2" angle iron and u bolts. Big thanks again to mudder for getting these, cant believe honda wont offer some kind of bolt on tilt bed like this, would prob cost $1K though!
