Question 1: I am doing a body off resto on my 1970 Overlander. I am welding up some new parts and pieces and noticed a peculiar dimension I am hoping someone might be able to provide some insight. The outrigger dimensions are all a consistent 14.75" from the frame rail. The top channel that is over the step is 15.25" from the frame rail. I have pictures that show the plywood floor extending to the edges of the outriggers and the edge of that channel. I just don't seem to recall a 0.5" bump out in the plywood for the step...
I have the plywood still, so i'll likely just put that back on the floor to see what it looks like... The only thing I can think of is maybe the plywood floor extended past the edge of the outriggers a small amount and i didn't notice it...
Question #2: Anyone else notice these ripples in the frame near the axles? They are consistent on both sides. If the trailer took a huge hit, i would expect them to be behind the axles and not uniform on each side.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
In case anyone wants to see all the pics...they can be seen here:
