I specced a 5" sill, the standard was3 or 4", so I should be OK.

No layout for the interior yet. Gotta crap a lot of stuff in there:
- ARB 82 qt fridge
- 2 optima yellow tops
- inverter 1200-2000W
- arb twin compressor
- multiple USB 5v plugs
- maybe air tank (or that might go underneath the bed in stead)
- all kinds of recover gear
- kitchen gear/food/water
- shelter/ropes/rigging/tarp gear
- firewood/bbq/charcoal
- portable foldable solar panels (overland solar 150W)
- LED overhead lights

I'm thinking through various options of mounting, tie-downs, shelving, boxes, ...

Wouter

So are you ditching the bed and installing the box directly to the frame?

If so I may be interested in purchasing the bed. I am getting tired of these ram boxes and the poor support of rack companies to fit them.

Once AEV is done with the truck, they will ship to Alumline, in Cresco IA.
They will take the bed of and replace it with the custom aluminum body.
They said they have a few buyers that buy the beds, but if someone wants to make an offer for it and can pick it up in Cresco IA, happy to talk.
TTEngineer, send me a private message if interested.

Looking forward to seeing the final results. What gearing did you end up going with?

Are you planning on a winch system for the two spares?

I was thinking just pure muscle power, but a simple block and tackle hoist will do fine. Something not permanently attached, but temporary only when needed.
