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
Gussets
6mm T-nuts
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

Welds don’t have to be pretty so long as they hold.

Made a spare tire mount out of some leftover scrap using the slots in the bed, it'll work for now but gives me some ideas some future projects.

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!

Nice work sir! Having the box on this is awesome, I've put mine to work quite a bit already.

Went ahead and threw a bench seat in the back that I've had forever, got it on a quick mount. And no I wont use it for anything dangerous :), just putting around slow on my property.
