    Mounting hardware

    I know exactly what you want they are called vibra mounts two pieces of steel the top is 5/8' and the bottom is 3/4" about 4x? x 2' long now you will have to get rubber vibration mounts some where they are sandwiched between the metal with a bolt pattern this will handle depends on the size of mount of course but they can handle up to 3 ton of weight and zero and I do mean ZERO Vibration will roll through the truck. Its like the business class suspension on a 5 ton truck that’s how it will ride and no it wont be tippy either.

    If you want me to go into deeper detail let me know I have to go to work right now so let me know hope this helps ya out.

    since you install truck bodies all the time and Ive spent most of my life fixing them after they've broke them I have a question. I'm getting ready to build an aluminum flat bed for my wife's new 08 superduty and debatting over the mounting to the frame. Have seen many types of mounting but was thinking about "floating" one end with springs and mounting the other end solid. at work we have no aluminum bodies and have seen many steel ones crack. With aluminum I am more concerned. I could float the whole thing I guess just more work to make the brackets with springs on the bolts. Any thoughts would be give me something to think about. Aluminum is being delivered today cost $$$ but will look nice

    any thoughts from anybody are appreciated

    yes but with a large tall compartment in the front either side but if you get one that has a large tall comp try and get it on the drivers side this is best
    much like this one only with a tall cabinet in the front

I'm also looking for some type of compartment for the Oxy and Act tanks. The police in NJ pull work truck over all the time and frenzy with the tickets. Please if you have any suggestions please let me know.

    compartment for the Oxy and Act tanks.the large compartment behind the passinger is for the tanks this body is with out the crane reinforcing in the rear left is about $8800.00 however there are hundreds of different combinations to body's but you can pick up a used one for about half that .there are thousands of way's you can go with this however when you put the tanks in this compartment you MUST have no electrical in this bin plug up the holes as well and you must install a vent at the bottom of the bin read thread My weekend project. Gas bottle rack for my work van .
    Anyway truck bodies generaly start around $3000.00 New.Then I get my hot little hands on it and carve it apart.

    the spring would be too much truble to try to get right.
