Default Post Side truck dump bodies

I've been quietly working away on these. Originally I was only going to build one for a customer but then once I got started I thought I should build a second kit to sell separately. The customer build is for a King chassis with a 3D printed Ford L9000 cab. The other will be setup as a direct bolt on for a stock, day cab King Hauler.

Here's what I have so far...

The one in front/left is/will be up for sale.

A little progress update. Hopefully just one more day of fab work before coating.

OH, and both are now sold...Thank you!

Just wanted to share a couple shots of the L9000 box mounted on it's new chassis. Lots of detail work to go on the cab yet but the box is a knock out!

Thanks for all the great comments guys! This one has been a fun build because of the cab being so different.
I will be starting a build thread in the construction part of the forum soon so I can quit hijacking Reg's thread. At least this time I remembered to take pictures as I went.
As a preview; the most important step in this build, contact Reg and get one of his dump boxes coming!

I have almost finished up another one of these post sides. It is a custom length for use on a 4 axle truck. I have a few minor details to add on today and then it will be off to coating on Monday. The box in the background is for sale and will also head into the coating shop Monday. If anyone is interested please PM for details. It is for a standard length KH daycab.
