Totally up to the fabricator. I've seen anywhere from 45 degrees to 60 degrees depending on the overall design. (I've actually SEEN 90 degrees...but highly questionable engineering on that one.) I don't know about others, but my theory is the frame should be designed in conjunction with the body, bed (if you have one), fenders (if you have them) etc. etc. --- and not the other way around, where the body components have to be adapted to a particular frame design.

Best thing is to accumulate as much of the parts you are going to use then build the chassis accordingly..Sometimes doing it this way means that when one stumbles on a good deal he can bring it home for the rod project..Then the angles and measurements will become apparent..I have a chassis table that I built to accomodate my needs in this area..
