Pretty good deal. Harbor Freight has a sale on the below. (Round numbers) $260 on sale for $200. Today another 25% off for the 4th. of July one day coupon. Price with discounts, $160. We just picked up the kit this afternoon. We'll mod the width narrower and figger what kind of luggage box to build/buy. #2 son is excited, he'll need it for his first extended road trip in August.

Got the same deal on Memorial Day. I narrowed mine to 30" and love it. I would adivise if you don't weld it, put Loc-Tite on the bolts. The nylox nuts are good, but the thing will vibrate a lot, even with only one leaf spring.

Do you have to shorten the axle?

cut axle

You need to cut alike amount out of the axle that you narrowed the bed. Weld in a piece of black pipe to strengthen it. Do notb forget to put a piece of hose around the bolt the spring rides on to quiet it down
