Am wondering if anyone has a cab dolly design with blueprints for the AD chevy trucks. Wanting to remove the cab from the frame due to space limitations but need something to support the cab in its natural state. Looking for a dolly design that allows easy movement of cab but still provides good strength for when I start cutting it up to do cab corners etc.

my body dollies are made from thin wall tubing. i cut a 6' piece and 2 4' pieces. 6 in the middle , 4 ' on ends. on each corner i weld a 12'' upright. to these i bolt 2x6 's. 8 ' for the car dolly and 4 ft for the truck. the truck dolly is only 4 ' long. i use good wheels for them as the cheaper ones don't last.

Eric, pull the cab and leave to doors on or brace it up so it doesn't flex, then build yourself some drop down legs that will bolt to the body mount locations, box the legs around the perimeter and add some angles so it can't flex and add the wheels. Having it bolt on will add to the rigidity.
