The frame is DESIGNED to flex. it is part of the suspension.
With that said, I would NOT box. it causes problems like
A. trapping water, dirt, salt,and ROTTING the frame out
B. Where will you run the brake lines, fuel lines and electrical
C. How would you access your body mounts?
D Your crossmenebrs go INSIDE the C of the frame
E your fuel tanks go INSIDE the C of the frame
F you exhaust hangers go INSIDE the C of the frame.
See what I am getting at?
For different reasons PLATED the inside of my frame
I got another truck frame for the SAME frame steel to let it flex like it should. Where they lay against each other. It was sandblasted, POR15, painted, and Cosmolined to prevent rust or trap anything. Also each 7' piece was bolted in with 25 or so bolts. AND the frame holes line up with each other so you can actually bolt things to the frame
Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
