  1. Welllllll looks like I learned something today...I thought it was curious that your rear sill did not have the L brackets offered by DCM, nor the bracket mounting holes. I could not locate these brackets in the factory parts manual either, so I figured Dodge did not offer them as replacement parts back in the day like fenders, tailgate chains, etc. So I took a look at the Pilot-House Registry and found 2 examples of '48 beds without these brackets, registered in Arizona and in New York, respectively. My '48 has a build date of June 23, 1948, and it has these L brackets. So I reckon them brackets were a running change somewhere before June 1948...how'bout that

  3. I stuck a shop light and my camera phone up in there while contorting on the floorboard one night after work...it was a magical experience
  4. Kinda looks like this is not the 1st time that the site has gone down... I never got around to joining DPETCA for a variety of reasons before Bob idled the site activity. He set up a FB page that is kinda active but IMHO it is populated with way too many obnoxious rat rodders and whiny SBC enthusiasts. Bob has not been active on here in years, and the last time we conversed awhile back, he lamented having a very full plate. I have wanted to support the DPETCA online database presence since I finally got around to setting up a profile here, that way my annual donation could help go towards maintenance and support. I was hoping that this site could mirror the DPETCA site, but I reckon there are technical issues that may preclude that.
