I'm sure it will help but ain't gunna stop it. If it does, you will be ripping the cab apart soon unless you box it in

Just my opinion here:

The cab and box actually keep the frame from flexing a lot more than people think, good mounts or solid mounts help.

If the frame is going to be trussed it needs to be attached to the vertical part of the frame, the vertical part of the frame is doing the work to keep the frame from bending when a force is applied to the rear of the frame (hitch). If the trussing is attached to the bottom of the frame, the frame should be boxed to make the trussing more effective.

I donít know that anyone with would disagree with you about the cab in the box adding rigidity to the frame. Thatís proven by the fact that the frame bins in between the cab in the bed. The thing is itís going to take its toll on the body. Next thing you know you got stress cracks forming doors donít close like they should etc.

It bends there mostly because you create a pivot point at the end of your bars or trussing, plus add in what bubba mentioned.

I wouldn’t count on the body to keep the frame from flexing. If the frame is flexing you need more truss work
