    holy hell, if they only made it a factory option, that frame will at last everything else on the truck. How long did it take you to strip it? galvanizing is the cheapest part of that whole process!!!!

    From the time we drove the new truck into our shop we had the frame on the trailer ready to get dipped in 11 hours.

    Wow, I can only guess what something like that would cost, and I bet it's not cheap.

    It takes 16 hours to reassemble the truck after the galvanizing , because every hole that is threaded needs to be tapped to clean the galvanizing out.

    I almost don't even believe 16 hours to put it back together. Just installing all the hoses and wiring and the engine back in seems like a week of work to me.

    You should seriously start a buisness doing this. I be you would have a line of trucks at your door.

    Very impressive. Cannot imagine what it takes to do that.

    We do have a shop. Even build the flat beds from scratch. Make the custom chute guards at the back of the sander to protect from damaging the Shute .
    Install all types of safety lights. We can totally up fit any vehicle.
    Main guy in the shop can rip apart these trucks in his sleep. Does them very fast ... But there still is a ton of labor building these trucks this way.
