Maybe it's my eyes, but it looks like the bed is slanted forward

Not sure why you made it so tall. It would get old fast having a bed nipple high.

Hey look.. something new! Bitches...

Nipple high? are you a midget? This is a balance between the tires rubbing and lifting stuff on top. The bottom of the bed is level with the front wheel wells. This is a low as possible build on 33's.

Slanted... ya it's the camera and not permanently fixed yet.. have to paint under. Totally in the mock up stage..

Holy dimple dies... come up with something original to say.

Ok, the bed will end up with tabs between the frame and bed. Not cushion per say.. but how may flatbeds on here do have cushion. It has a ways to go.. however thanks for bringing up the idea.

Oh look self appointed pirate judge... with that attitude how many folks do not post new ideas on here?!?

With that said... more to come down the road. This project is only 1/2 done.

Thanks for checking it out everyone.... anyone with a positive idea.. "Bring it"

There will be storage underneath... not quite sure how or what. Anyone have ideas?!?

Thanks!

Next...

The headache rack will be made like some of the (flat bed) sled-beds scattered around the internet.


Some tool boxes like the pic below... maybe under the front of the bed.

You're doing it wrong. Don't you know you're supposed to buy a pre-bent off the shelf bed with no imagination, skill, or new ideas

This is one of the thoughts stirring around. Do folks put them on rollers.. or slide metal on metal? Anyone done this with after the fact thoughts?

If you used channel with uhmw for the slides it should hold up pretty good with no moving parts.

That may work fairly well... with tow straps, jumper cables, etc back there. Would also keep the lighter items towards the back end of the rig.

Should also weld on a spare tire carrier to let the tire lay flat on the bed

Make sure u put some kind of cushion between the bed and frame, you wouldn't want any loads feeling uncomfortable.
