It's nice you two guys can share, but Ted, I would love to see you start a thread about those trucks. Is that wrecker done? And what about the pickup in the middle of the 3 pics above? Your trucks are over the top in my book.

Back to the bumps. My 34 has them to allow for the protruding bumps in the sides of the truck bed which allow space for the shocks to function.

Got my bed floor and wood underlayment delivered today. I ordered thru Ecklers and paid about $850 less in shipping charges than the price Mack Hils quoted me for shipping... and parts still come from Mack Hils. The bed floor tin is a little wonky but I expect it to smooth out once I start assembling everything. I am not impressed with the wood though. I wish it was closer to original and the cuts are horrible. I’d buy the bed tin again but would make my own bed wood next time. Just sharing my opinion hoping it helps someone. Oh, and to answer my original question in this post... no bumps.

You are correct, a school boy could do a better job than that!

I’ll see if I can clean the boards up with some filler. Otherwise I’ll be making my own boards. It’s too bad someone isn’t making the boards just like Ford did. I know it would cost more, but I’d be willing to pay to have correct, and nicely done, bed wood.

Yes, wood work doesn't look to be up to Hils' normal standards, don't know what is up with that?

It sure looks like they could have done a better job.

Definitely. Itíd be hard to do a worse job. I know a lot of people have raved about Mack Hils, but I havenít had the same experience with the two orders Iíve received from them.

This could be a guess on my part, but since you saved $850 on the shipping and ordered through Mac's could you possibly have received "seconds".

Oh boy, that sure would be bad business. But why would any company wants to put out a crappy product when theyíre capable of making good product. I received a message from a gentleman that received a similar condition bed wood but ordered direct from Mack Hils, so I donít think this is the case.

I have been working on getting this Mack Hils bed floor tin to fit. 4 of the 6 bed to frame mounting holes are in the wrong spot, so I will be redoing this. Two of the other bed floor to subframe holes are way off. One thing I did notice about the dimples around the bed to frame mounting holes is that they are quite a bit smaller than the original bed floor dimples. The heads of the bolts are about the same size as the dimples so I really think this will look funny if I kept them as they come from Mack Hils. Since I have to relocate 4 of the 6 holes, I will machine some dies to stamp the correct size dimples around the holes. I can post pictures of that progress since I plan to tackle it this weekend, that is if nobody is sick of bed floor talk yet.

I decided to tackle this job this afternoon since itís been eating at me. I machined tooling to replicate the larger factory dimples in the original bed floor. You can see my test piece matches the original dimple and is quite a bit larger than the Mack Hils piece.

I flattened the incorrect dimples and filled the holes. I placed the pilot holes in the correct position after checking my subframe, frame, and original bed floor and stamped the correct size dimple with countersunk taper into the floor tin.
