    Hi all,

    Interesting question, but I'm going to say no. Mine doesn't have any rubber parts in those slots. If there were some kind of bumpers in those locations originally I can't imagine how they would have disappeared.

    Then again, some board members do have comprehensive parts books on these trucks. Someone might confirm that bumpers where used there in some years (probably earlier than mine).

    Yes, there are. They are square. I don't think they are needed unless you plan on putting a lot of weight in the center. Maybe super scout specialists has them.

    Well there you go. Might have been part of the original design and then left out of the production process at some point. I can't see them doing any good, except maybe noise dampening there. Or as JRC said, to help with excessive loads. But I don't know how much good rubber 'shims' would be at that point.

    I'm curious what others will say about it.

    Thanks guys,, I don't plan on making this a work vehicle so the only weight would be the spare tire and and rear passengers . But since I have welded in a new floor ( 12 guage diamond plate steel ) I think this should be sufficient for weight bearing.
