No you do not have to cut the frame. But.............if you have the factory hitch or the factory round bar behind the bumper, then you have to loosen the bolts holding the bed on and lift the bed to remove the round bar.
If it were up to me, I would get a steal rollpan if I was planning to mold it in because you can weld it to the bedsides. However, my plastic pan was a simple scuff, prime, and shoot; I painted the rollpan from start-to-finish, in my garage, in about 2 hours. Steal is stronger, and would provide more protection, in the event of a rear collision, than either plastic or fiberglass. The major advantage for plastic and fiberglass is weight savings, but unless you are obsessive about weight, steal would probably work well for your application.lpfan4life85 said:Lookin good.....i would like to have mine molded in. What is better a steel roll pan...fiberglass...or plastic. They had to do a lot of sanding to my fiberglass on i had cause it was wavy and uneven.
Here ya go...ram03reg said:i want to move the spare but i dont know what to do with it does anyone have and suggestions?
Thats what I did with mine. That way you dont ever have to worry about it getting stolen bc mine hung down too. I have mine tied down in the bed with rope.Black05Hemi said:
That is a nice set up, i am going that way right now, just ordered the bedrug @ 283 shipped and a tail gate relocator, just wandering if you had choice on the bedrug logo, i see that one you have, with the logo being on the upper right, then others that has the bedrug logo centered which the lettering seems bigger. Or is it based on color choice or maybe it is just random.Black05Hemi said:
