    What year is your Rubicon and how long is it? We own a 05 ford explorer which is 190 inches long. Don't want to trade it for a escape which is shorter we are hoping it will fit on the truck. If it does it will save a lot of money. Our bed is basically the same as yours.

    So I went to the link you suggested it mentioned something about cookies. There is when it went off the rails hmmm COOKIES!!!!!!!!!!! Cookie monster has nothing on this guy. Ok got cookies in hand .Now what. Still wont post pictures. Don't know what cookies have to do with posting pictures. but they are darn good. Chad see what you have to deal with .Dw has to deal with this 24/7. I can stand 80,000 lb concrete wall panels all day long .Build ridged frame buildings all day long Build truck beds all day long . But when it comes to " cookies" it is over my computer skill capability's . There's got to be a way to simplify this to make it a little easier.

    Thanks for the reassurance we are planning to put a escape on it .After spending so much money on this bed restoring it and remodeling it Dws blood pressure was ratcheting up and I was going end up being a full timer not in the Rv under it. Wasn't looking good. I kept on telling her we did our research did the math dotted all the I, s and crossed all the t,s its going to work. Steel for the frame supposed to be delivered today. Going to be a busy weekend. There's know turning back now.

    New bed Has 14ft of flat bed space 6ft of dove tail . From back of cab to end of stock frame 12ft. Have to ad 2ft flat and then turn frame downward 6ft to accommodate dove tail. Pin will be back from end of stock frame 7ft with a pin weight of 1400lbs going to remain tandem. I hope this enough info to clear this up. New frame extensions are made to the same stock frame rail dimensions and out of hardened steel.

    Interesting. Jack please go to page 38 and look up frame extension pics .You stated this was not going to be an issue. Now the bed is built and the frame is bought .And now you said you would not do it. Please explain. I didn't go cheap on buying frame material and liner no mild steel all hardened .

    Question for the newbies.

    Ok lets try to explain this regardless of whether the brakes lock or don't lock . I do not think it would be a good idea to get off the throttle because of the tailgater you have hidden in your blind spot that is going to run up your backside.do not know if this rates as "Expert Advice" but makes sense to me

    Question for the newbies.

    I know all you old time truck drivers know this . But lets try to teach a newbie something new .Here is the question . Your driving down the highway at a speed of lets say 70 mph then all of the sudden your brakes lock up .Do you get off the throttle and stop? Or do you punch the throttle and get to a safe place to get off the road.? Let the debate begin. This should be fun.

    frame rail z cut

    Total lineal ft of frame that I need is 9 ft because of the rake of the dove tail I am not actually adding a lot of length to the truck. Don't know if this makes any sense. But it is the only way I can explain it
