I'll be following you on this because I'm working on putting a TF 8' bed on my 3/4 ton 41.

I've been looking at bed to tire clearance as well. My brother said he would allow 5"-6". He said you'd be surprised how much distance is needed when you hit a bump with a load on it. I have a '59 one ton with a flat bed on it and it does have about a 5-6" clearance.
I'm putting a '59 8' bed on my 41 and don't want go any higher off the chassis than I need to. I do have a decent pair of fenders if you are interested and I'm about 3 hrs. from you. I plan on using the '41 fenders on mine. But we're not supposed to talk about selling anything in this section or the moderator will get mad at me. So PM me if you're interested.

Ok well, moving forward. Like the bandit, "W thumbs_upe're going todo what they said cant be done" Sing it with me.. Lol. I have the bed now on the frame. I mounted a 1 by 2 inch rectangle stock on both sides of the bottom of the bed from front to back along cross members at mounting points. Front of frame towards cab got two 4 by 4s stacked. Rear only got 1. I had 8 U-bolts made. Fronts were 3 1/2 by 17 and rear were 3 1/2 by 11. The bed is sitting alitta high, but I think it going to work good. And because of the height, I didn't have to mini tub like I first thought. Got 5 1/2 plus inches of clearance at the tires. Bed height at rear is 55 1/4 or so. Rear tires are about 2 inches out from fender, but fender is just sitting there for pic purposes, not mounted. Probly close tho. Tires also sit atad forward, but acceptable for me. And wont hurt the function. I digging it really. Glad it was even close...Check out pics.
