It will haul just fine. Trucks only have bushings on the cab and front clip.

That would be the stock j20 tank/sending unit. i built a tank holder for it and mounted it to rear crossmember and the other stock crossmember back there. Fits great!

Flatbeds are cool. I noticed you're running the same thin style catalytic converter that I'm running .
