Where did you get the air chuck insert plug shown in the video in the rear? The black plug with the ring pull. With the weather/salt out here, I'm constantly cleaning mine so it doesn't gunk up.
That’s seriously the thing I got asked most about on the Tundra too.Where did you get the air chuck insert plug shown in the video in the rear? The black plug with the ring pull. With the weather/salt out here, I'm constantly cleaning mine so it doesn't gunk up.
Very nice rig!Video with more details up:
Thanks.Very nice rig!
Have you checked what happens to articulation and crossed-up wheel clearance now that you have the subframe on? Should be fine (I think) since the subframe only moves up relative to the main frame as you twist.
My Tundra doesn't flex nearly as much but I can still get ~3.5" max twist relative to the cab. I was planning to do a 3 point mount with the front rigid, but noticed that this actually decreases the tire clearance... which doesn't seem ideal.
How did you mount your Tundra?I did the same with my tundra. I most definitely would NOT do a Tundra bed hard mounted in the front if you’re looking for flex. The area just behind the cab is where most of the flex happens. We tested this a lot on my tundra.
That’s Physically Impossible, but I won’t argue with you.Mine is the 8' bed. The heavy duty frame rails extend further back from the cab, and most of the flexing is behind the rear wheels. You can see very little shifting between the cab and front of the bed. I think a 3 point would be ok; from the research I've done that gets used a lot even on very flexy frames like yours or the Fuso. But your design seems best for that sort of frame; evens out the load better.

Ordered a total composites 10 foot cab over kit and I’ll be assembling it myselfwhat composite builder and specs did you decide? I just picked up a 2016 Ram 5500 crew that was a flood loss, Got it back on the road, and most of the gremlins worked out. Shopping for flat beds and custom campers now.
