    Default Lmtv bed stakes

    Still trying to find a pair of center side bed stakes for a 1078.

    Are you interested in some made out of steel? I could use mine as a pattern, but don't want to give up the ones with my bed. I'll go check size to see if a standard size tube will work.

    That may be the route I have to go. I was hoping for originals but they seem to be hard to find.

    Wow...they are not standard tube size (of course). I measure 3 1/4" x 1 7/8" x around 3/16" aluminum. I have no idea where to get that raw material size.

    I can see using a 2" x 3"x 1/4" wall and mill 1/16" off of each side to fit the pocket hole, then add 1/8" flat to each side. And I would close the end off, so debris doesn't go down inside it.

    Do you need all the interior holes for the top canopy frame (or whatever they are there for) or only the hole for the door slider to hold the sides up?

    i donít intend on having a canopy, or even troop seats for that matter. Just basically something to hold the door sides up. I have a plate of 1/8 and my buddy said he would help me make them if needed.

    That at being said, there is a m1082 up for auction near me, which would help me on a few things with this truck. But thatís a long shot.

    Of course if wheelspinnner come through, that would be easy. Freight should not be too bad for aluminum.

    2x3x1/4" is a common steel size. It won't be too difficult with your friends mill.

    A wood member (painted green of course) would work too, for a while. Coming up with the oddball size would be easier in wood.
