Truck Bed Chipper Bonnet Removal

Postby BTW » Wed Nov 02, 2016 6:52 pm

Yesterday I had one of my customers that wheels and deals in trucks and equipment bring me a F-350. He wanted the chipper bonnet cut off the bed. He had a buyer for the truck and the buyer did not want the bonnet that covered the bed 6 feet back. The total length of the bed was 12 feet.

So I let the torch do the walking. Here is a couple of pics to give you an idea of what it looked like.

The floor of the bed towards the head board was rotted out so, I used about 2-1/2 feet of the bonnet's roof to patch the floor all the way across from side to side. Now the buyer will have a few years (or more) before he/she may have to do any floor repair/replacing.
