To my understanding, it is about the height and angle of the tub/t-pieces and how many washers you use on the bulkhead. I am going to try to tackle this tomorrow and my plan is to fit the roof too and try to get it all lined up.

So the lines are used to set the "angle" of the tub. That makes more sense because I do not have a lot of fore or aft movement at all once the T-posts are tied onto the tub. Wish I fit the roof too but the truck sits so high it wont fit inside the garage. Will have to wait until I can move it outside.

You can't fit the roof while aligning the tub and doors and then remove again before rolling it out (or air down or something)?

Sure, if you want to be logical about it

Ok that was a waste of a morning. My garage ceiling is 10 feet but my garage door, when opened, sits at 8 feet so it won't clear the roof. Had my truck been sitting in the single bay instead of the double, I could have left the garage door closed while working on the truck. Damn.

You sure you don't mean 7ft? My stock D90 clears a 7ft door.

I know this one sounds crazy, but have you considered swapping bays before putting the roof on? It rolls right?

So after spending a few hours lining up the tub, I think I figured out what the "lines" are used for:

If you look down the side of the truck from the back (like down a barrel of a gun) the lines should be straight and not bent out anywhere and the side of the tub should just touch the line. If you sight it and there is a "bend" in the line, then the tub is not squared to be bulkhead as it sits on the frame.

If you look at a sideview of the truck, the lines should also be straight as it runs along the "shoulder" of the tub and T posts. If there is a bend in the line, you may have to place shims under the tub to get it to line up. The angle of the front end of the tub is off compared to the rear end of the tub. I had to use 3 shims in the rear to level my tub.

You said that much better than I did.

Did anyone noticed the black stuff on the underside of the tub? It's like black grease. I assume it's waxoyl but what I don't get is why is it so random where they spray it. Why not spray the whole tub? What are they protecting in those areas?

Probably overspray from when spraying the chassis (after assembly - maybe a dealer option?)

Wow, I think you're right but what a crappy dealer option. They completely missed the rear crossmember. No oversprays at all in the rear. Maybe they wiped it clean. Either way I really hate this stuff.

From the factory, the frame is sprayed, except for the rear crossmember.

Why not the rear crossmember (at least the inside)?
