Just curious about the weight of the subframe and also with the spare wheel location effecting truck's departure angle.It’s been a pretty straight forward build so far, but I’d say mainly because of doing a tonne of planning! Have gleaned a lot from the forums here that’s for sure. I’m trying to do it on the cheap where possible, I’ve spent a lot of time hunting down suppliers for different bits and pieces instead of buying the finished off the shelf complete products. Tray build is going to come in at around $3000 AUD I reckon. Probably a bit more with fasteners and everything.
$900 for 8x spring mounts
$250 for steel for subframe
$1000 approx for aluminium tray extrusions
$450 approx for welding jobs
$350 approx for the tanks
I was quoted $3500 for a new subframe and anywhere from $3000 to $6000 for an aluminium tray which was well outside my budget. So far it’s been reasonably easy, but as I said, I’ve had a lot of time to model it and plan it out so it was conceptually mostly finished before I started!
