I took 20" out alltogether. I wanted to see the spreader bar, and keep all the gaps,lines, and reveals right. I wanted it short,but i wanted it even around the wheel.ended up being 2" from the middle, and what ever it needed to be on the ends to make it look right. Stake pockets, and other stuff should be here next week.need to get started on the chassis,but wanted to get some cheap, motivational work done. Not bad for a hundred dollar bed. What do you think.
