Here you go Bo. So far there are 22 different pieces in this box not including the ladders or lift assembly. 8 more pieces to bend and or machine and the tailgate should work! I think it looks good so far though.

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!
By the looks of Mark's trailer I say it's going to be worth every penny of that. And how will you be mechanizing the lift gate?

I'm just going to make it have a regular style tailgate so it will just be mechanical.

So I'm doing OK with it so far? I was able to lop off 3/8" on the back end yesterday before welding on all of the goodies. I was sweating a little when making the cuts but it all turned out fine and in the end it will look better with less overhang.

A little update. The front is really tall on this one because it will be using a custom KW cab. The modified cab is 147mm tall from frame rail to roof. I believe a stock king is about 120mm. Anyway, here it is.

Rob said it's a Ford orange but I know the powder coater won't have the exact color. I think they have an orange that's close though.

Here's another update. I had hoped to have it done today but it was not meant to be. Things always take much longer than anticipated it seems but it is getting close.

Thanks Mark. I kind of thought I would try to make up a cover for it but I guess some are belt drive. What do you think? Yes/no?

Cover is made. All parts are torn down, washed and headed for coating. Fingers crossed the orange they have is close enough!
