Default Another dump box variation

I was asked a few days ago about building a custom dump box. This is not an unusual request for me to hear but it is a style I haven't built before until now. Anyway, we did some talking back and forth about some things that might need to be changed slightly to work in the mini world and yesterday I got to work!

This is the truck that I am helping to recreate...



After two days in the shop, this is what I have so far. Not much I guess.lol These things take time...

that truck was as quick as a beaver on ice every time I got the camera he was gone

Those beavers, they can be pretty slick sometimes. Even without ice.

Rob sent me a couple of pictures and a video a couple of days back. I just searched for more pictures tonight and it looks like there are a number of them out there. It should be a pretty cool looking little rig when it's finished. It's interesting for me to do something a bit different but not so much that it's a pain. Super cool that it is going to the UK too!

Haha. I was trying to get an email address to give him on YouTube but my providers site had a glitch and froze the email I wanted. I had to phone them and then it took 3 days to sort it out. By that time Rob was on here.lol

Not a lot of progress today but I did get the lower brace mounted, a little welding done underneath and the ladders welded up.

I'm making good progress on this today so check back in later for an update Rob(or I guess early tomorrow for you). I'm glad you like the ladders. I think they look good too.

Since I haven't built one like this before, we agreed on $1000US including the tarp($850-complete box, $150-tarp). As always, shipping is on top of that. I'm about 22hrs into the setup now and I'm only about half way. I have 7hrs just in the rear section/tailgate and it isn't done yet.lol If I do another one I may need to ask a little more but we'll see. It isn't finished yet...

Pictures of todays progress coming soon!
