WOW, nice MOD!
Very professional looking and makes great use of the space.
Great job! Have you notice any ill effects from a "lighter" tongue? The bikes surely can't weigh that much to equal what was removed?
On mine, the metal basket with the Line-X coating actually weighed more than the original front box. And ya, Venus' bikes are very light, hence his great lengths to give them a nice travel spot
Could a 250 pound dirt bike be parked on the deck without affecting the vehicle stability?
Your call if you want to subject your PUP frame to that much weight. I can safely say Ive had in excess of 200lbs on my deck. Made it tow more stable than unloaded.
The paperboard walls of the box, once they are waterlogged, have plenty of weight. I'm sure the frame is capable of much more weight, and it shouldn't affect handling much. See how much lower your hitch drops when you put the trailer on it. It's important to have the trailer level when towing.
you still have the cargo door? I can buy it from you. one of my hinges broke.
That's a killer job on the conversion. Looks factory.
Like this a lot. I want just replace both sides of mine and the small area of the floor that is rotted but eventually if the whole floor rots out I might just cut the old box off and build a new framed box out of diamond plate with doors on both sides and top. Our problem is we use it and use it for lots of stuff so a deck is more useless to us.
Question for anyone who has performed this mod. Has anyone decided to remove the switch and light fixture for the box and just go with the running lights in the front. I seem to have created an electrical problem and am now trying to chase it down. May have something to do with the ground on the box light?
Just finished mine, added 2' extra deck space. Reenforced frame. 1"1/2 expanded metal "decking". Needed to fit 2/3 motorcycles/dirt bikes. Thanks for the info I'll post pictures soon.
