Im tearing my truck back down at the moment. First thing that strikes is how flimsy the chassis is. Im expecting very reasonable power from the engine rebuild next year so the chassis has to be able to cope.
Heres a standard one
The cross members are flimsy and riveted in, Im looking for idea's on sorting it out. I was thinking of putting in new cross members, welding them to the inside of the chassis walls..and then box in around it. Would this be the correct way to do it? Also where to put new ones in? same place as the originals?
I've seen the way Wayne has done one of his on a build thread, Seen below. Would something along those lines be a better set up?
What have you all done? Put some pics up if you can.
