Since 14.5” was cut out of the front of the bed, I needed to cut out a chunk of the rear frame to get it tucked back under the bed again.
Once that was done, I made up some spacers to make the bed sit level again. The rearmost spacers are 1.375” tall, The next set is ¼” tall, the third set is 2” tall, and the last set (closest to the cab) is ¾” tall. You can somewhat see them in this photo:
And yeah, if you’re paying attention, the paint on the bed is quite a bit lighter than the cab, so a respray is going to happen this weekend.
