    Not serious, but a question. Did you attach the box to the cab or leave them separate? I know the frame flexxes a bit, but should I join the cab and box or not?
    Thanks

    Why would you?

    I would think it would tear apart at whatever point you welded it.

    Again, why would you?

    Mike, I would keep them seperate as well. I have problems with my Blazer body pulling all of the spot welds out of the front fenders from frame flex. That is why I advised in one of the earlier threads to mount the cab solid to the frame, and make the rollcage as stiff as you can.
