Hi. This is quite a simple question...
My 404 did have a radio body on it before I bought it. When I got it it just had the 3 point frame that the body was on.
I have now put a drop side pick up body on.
Anyway, my question is, do the standard Unimog pick-ups have the 3 point frame things or are they pretty much just bolted to the chassis?

All 404's use some kind of 3 point mounting for the bed. There are a few different types however.

I thought the troop beds were bolted to the frame, without a 3 point mounting. Those beds are rather lightweight and the boards allow them to flex. I never had one but someone will know for sure.

They have one of the really funky flex beds. Still a three point though. Hard to tell at first glance though. The pivot is pushed to the corner of the mounting frame.

Yeah, some are hard to see at first glance. The passenger side would have been mounted to the chassis rigidly, and the driver side mounted to the chassis on hinged brackets, all the while looking like a solid mount. Others had a more true three point mount, solid up front and a centerline hinging mount at the rear. Pictures would make it easier to see the difference.........hint hint trucktor.

BTW, good to see you back KC.
