Today''d like to get one on my truck and don''d like to get one on my truck and don''m guessing most guys would not have blueprints.It really comes down to what truck you have and what would look best? personal preference.I would image search your truck and find three or four beds you like and create your own unique bed for your rig

Mine isn''t completely done yet, but you may get an idea or 2... no blue prints either, sorry. Still have to finish, paint, and put on the side skirts, finish the wood for the inside, and finish the fuel filler.





Hey ole buddy, long time no talk. That''ll take any plans, measurements, pictures or measurements that you would care to share on this thing.

I actually don''s.

When I am back working on the truck, I can get a rough measurement though. I will upload as many pictures as I can here...

Here you can see how we build the framework on the inside of the bed. We used 2x2" square tubing with 1/8" wall for the inside, the onto the perimeter we used 2x2 1/8" angle iron. On the angle iron we welded 6"x1/8" flat steel, which is what you see on the outside.










Once we had the frame of the bed made, I made up some bends that followed the body line pretty well in order to make the headache rack, which was made of the left over 2x2 tubing.








After all of that, we mocked up the fenders. The fenders are trailer fenders with a 31" radius, I believe. Cost about $50 each from a website. Unfortunately, I don''s just a 3/4" flat piece run from the framework of the bed to the back side of the fender, then a bead laid on the INSIDE of the 6" flat side of the bed.


The side skirts are all hand formed sheet metal, which are yet unfinished, but here is the general idea of them.





Hopefully this helps some, sorry I don''s sake, I should go measure this weekend when I am back at my parent''ve seen some really good looking beds based on there bumpers mostly welding rigs but great looking beds

Thank you! Should be completing it here soon. Working on the wood for the bed at the moment, figuring out how to mount the fuel filler, then finishing up the side skirts and she should be good to go!
