    Undercoating!

    I will be undercoating my truck bed and cab real soon it's a spray undercoating my cab and bed are off the frame I need to know is there any way I can turn the bed or cab on its side without bending the body? I have man power to flip it but don't want the bed or cab bending or getting worse then it is!

    I think the bed would be alright if you stood it up on its end with the tailgate end up. If outside there is the wind to consider. Could lean it against a tree I guess. So long as it's lifted to this position and not rolled on the corners. The cab may stand up on its firewall. If it wants to tip then a couple of shim blocks under the heavy side should balance it. I take it you don't want to lay on your back and spray upward?

    stand the cab on its back after removing the back window - it will risk less damage to the sides of the truck, and the back is stronger with reinforcing ribs

    I used 2 saw horse's and flipped the bed over, put the horse's under the bed and sprayed the underside after I power washed it.
