    Hopefully this is in the right place.
    I'm working on a 39 1/2 ton and I shortened A frame from a 1 1/2 ton truck, and I'm getting ready to mount the bed and dont know the space between the cab and bed , If someone has a truck and could tell me the distance at the center of the cab to bed, I would be greatful as I have no holes or splash aprons to locate the bed.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks Spike.

    See if these will help........can't get accurate measurement with the storage box in place. Looks like 1/8". Not sure back of cab is perfectly straight but the bed definitely is.

    Ya this is a huge help, I was thinking the space was a lot larger than that. So after work tom I'll get to work and drill some holes and mount the bed. Thanks for the pic's they are a big help, it always seems to help when you can look at a pic, and have a referance.
    Thanks Spike !!:D

    I'm not mounting mine that close. I've seen too many banging the cab. I am leaving about 3/4".
     

  5. Same here...
     
  6. Mine has a stock gap of about 1/4"-3/8" and it has never hit the cab. I think that I would not go closer then 1/4". 3/4" would look fine though, so if you are worried then go wider.

    Well I'm think I'll go with the stock gap so I can just use stock splash aprons. Because I'm gonna go full fendered , just because there are not any like this arround me.
    Thank's everyone for the input ; Spike:D
