Mikey, no garage sucks but it's not all bad I built this in a driveway with a extension cord plugged into my dryer receptacle


Now to everyone that read this thread...











GO BUILD SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dang, crazy shit right there !!!

How do you make your notches ? I bought a few hole saws to use on my drill press, but when you're trying to do it at odd angles I don't think it's going to work very well.

Haven't fixed the bushings yet, starting to get backed up on other work so it might take a little longer before I get the bushings fixed

Yeah... I'm trying to plan how I want to do mine, that's the part that is stumping me. How to make a nice hinge.

Yeah. I want the hinge to be nice and snug. I haven't been able to look at a shop fabbed setup to see how they do it.

Dual shear setup using heavy equipment bushings and 1 1/4" pins on each end so it will swing out on both sides

Those pins should definitely be strong enough. I saw you mention the dual hinge earlier, that should be nice once you get it all fitting tightly. I'll probably just do a single hinge.

Single works well (all the manufacturers use it) as long as its well supported, ruff stuff specialties sell hinge kits that are ultra strong

I still need to decide if I'm going to cut the bedsides or build to fit the stock configuration
Did you make the high clearance hitch receiver yourself?
