Flatbed pics.
« on: November 21, 2010, 09:33:01 PM »
The bed on my truck is getting pretty bad and I have been debating doing a flatbed. Anybody do one and do you have any pictures? I haven't been able to find any pictures on here. I would like to see what it would look like. My brother has a nice pair of Jobox tool boxes to put down each side. Just throwing around some ideas in my head! Thanks.

It's really common to build a flatbed for them once the bed goes.

OK Billy here you go. I made this one from scrap steel, and new pressure treated lumber. Cost $400 total for the materials.

That thing looks heavy George!  :o
Thats because they have that heavy sheet metal side skirts on. take them off, and it looks just like any other flat bed.  Since it has a metal deck, I think it has less bracing then what you used, so it is probably lighter then the one you made. I thought it would be heavier, but does not seem that bad. Tammy and I were able to push the truck through the yard, by hand.

I definitely do not like how they did the  rear trailer hitch.  But I'm just going to make this into a flatbed trailer, and use it for a big welding table.  ;)

Thanks for all the replies! I think I may have gotten lucky. I was thinking on how to do this on the cheap when I remembered I have an old flat deck trailer ay my brother's house. Sure enough, it's the same size as my bed. It has a diamond plate floor and the sides are angle iron, something along the lines of dak360's orange truck. I figure just pop off the axle, springs and tongue, paint it and I should be good. The trailer was used to haul a large Ditch Witch trenching machine so it is strong. I hope it's not too heavy!!
