Flat bed is off, hopefully mount the dump body subframe this weekend and get the dump body on soon after

Nice...I assume you are using a scissors lift.  I'm waiting for some 50 degree temps to paint my flatbed dump - made it a single cylinder setup..electric hydraulic.  Have an extra scissors lift but going to use it on a trailer.

The lift system for the dump body is actually just piston mounted directly to dump body. No scissor or any type of arm system. It's also not only power up but also power down system which might come in handy

After a loooong day of fitting and my buddy doing all the welding with a nice dual shield flux core welder, the dump body is on. Needs to be repainted and the cab shield put back on. Also needs some Polly fenders and a few other things
