So what happens when the frame flexes? The bed is soft mounted to the frame, and twists like a mofo when you leave the pavement. Prepare for many cracked welds/sheet metal on your bed and exhaust pipes.

This is how much the frame twists when lifted or flexed:






Pathetic really. That's why I'm cutting it off at the cab and backhalfing it!
