New Stax

The new Stax came in Friday. I went ahead and started looking underneath at where i will need to put a hole in the bed just my luck the cross member is right directly under where i need to put the hole. What is the best way to fix this problem??? I do have access to a plasma if i need to i can cut the cross member enough to get the pipe thru the hole.What should i do???? Any ideas are appreciated! I will try to post pics tomorrow.

Re: New Stax

Sawzall, the hole don't have to be really pretty it just has to work. The T pipe will cover it up. Knock out a 5" hole with the plasma & you might have to take a sawzall to the crossmember.

Re: New Stax

I wouldn't cut the crossmember just to install stacks unless you never use the truck for anything but getting drinks at the corner store.

Re: New Stax

There was a guy on TDS that had stacks right up against the bed & pulled the whole cross member out. Also had a 110gal fuel tank/toolbox a 1/4" in front of em & reported no issues even fully loaded.

Go buy a cup saw it makes a nice clean cut. (and tries to throw you through the back glass when it binds)
