My sweet new flat bed.

So i got my new bed built. My neighbor and i worked together on it and i think it looks great. I got some ideas from some of yall's truck photos so thanks for that. I was going to try to replace the wheel arch on the original bed but i suck at welding stuff that thin. Check out the photos... Pretty nice huh?

Re: My sweet new flat bed.

Very nice! Are you going to do anything between the bed and bumper?

Re: My sweet new flat bed.

We need more flat beds! Looks great!
I don't know about Arkansas laws, but now that your rear wheels are "un-covered" you may be in need of some mud flaps.
Good job!

Love those flat beds. That is a really good job on the woodwork. I like it.

Looking good, nice work! On the rear, just get some plate and weld a ranch style rear skirt kinda like this:

The original poster hasn't been on the board since 1-17-2011 so I doubt you will get a response from him. Any kind of wood will work. Hardwood generally lasts longer than soft woods but it also depends what you use for a finish. No matter what kind of wood or finish you use it will have to be refinished every few years.....

Check this thread out.
