    I've looked at all the pictures I can find on here and ebay and all over the net. If ya got any more or have modeled something in solid works, post up. Looking for ideas. Main concern is it have some sort of flow from the cab to the rear bumper.

    Main reason I'm considering this is more utility than the dually fendered box that is on there now.

    quick tach hoist, fifth wheel plate, them sort of things. I believe a flatbed may serve me better.

    Box and fenders are in really good shape though and I do like the way it looks now so its a tough call.

    Thanks!

    Didn't see this until now...if you want an SW model, reserve a couple hours on a Tuesday or Thursday and I'll come down and make ya one, and I'll show you how to run it at the same time.

    Also, I might be buying a CC dually next fall, so this could benefit me as well.

    I'm planning the same thing as we speak! How about tool boxes in front of the wheels under the bed, and the head-ache rack a tapered fuel tank?

    What'd you have in mind? You can only add so many asthetic touches before you start running out of places to put storage compartments...

    I like the bent panel behind the tires but ya can't put a storage box there anymore because of it unless you had the door facing up...provided you could work around the obvious dranage issue. Then again if you pull off your toolbox/fuel tank idea you could convert pretty much all the space under the bed into a giant tool chest.

    Get me some measurements and I'll draw up a more realistic one. I need bottom of cab to top of frame, length, width, cab to tire, tire to end of frame, etc.

    thats kinda cool... here's my idea for my dually...
    it already has a flatbed.... so im going to recess a fuel tank (teal), a battery box (garnet) a tool box (blue) tie in some supports from the top of the headache rack into rear shock mounts (green dots), cut the flatbed and frame almost right behind the rear spring mounts and a somewhat recessed spare tire holder (grey) and a strap holder between the supports.. whatcha think of my MSPaint special?
