          No kiddin! Plus, there wouldn't be the satisfaction of a job well done either. It is a nice bed, but don't think it's worth it to buy for 9K...

            I bought my bed from Texas Haulers. Payed $8625 for it. Mine is pretty basic compared to fixsrigwelding though. I thought I came out pretty good on it. Yeah their is only about $1,500 to 2k in metal but thats only the start of it. Their is latches,locks, gas springs,fenders,mud flaps, goose neck ball, welding rods, fuel, lights, paint. It would have take'n me at least 3 weeks to make anything close to what they built. That whole time I was at work making money not at home workin on a bed.You figure 9k minus 3 paychecks equals $1500 for a really nice bed. It only took 2 days to install the bed and swap my machine and tools. Just something to consider.

            I do think their is a lot to be said for someone who does build their own bed.

              No, that is immature and incorrect.

                It's a shame that you can't appreciate the craftsmanship that went into this bed. Texas Haulers did a fantastic job in making every detail of this as specified for my company and my equipment. My mistake for thinking that this was a website made up solely of professionals.

                    THanks for your imput. You are correct, I would have liked to make my own custom bed, but sadly, the amount of money I would have lost, sittin at home fabin' a bed instead of pipe-lining would not have made sense.

                      I built a bed like this for a friend of mine who is a pipe welder and I charged about $ 10,000.00

                      Just because some one is a pipe welder doesnt mean that they know how to fabricate.

                      Also theres the fact that my friend was out doing what he knows best and making big money at it.

                      While I was building a bed for his new truck.

                      Just because your a pipe welder doesnt mean that you have a shop with cranes, shears, brakes, rollers, iron workers and all the different materials on hand to build a bed of this caliber.

                      Oh, And all the work that goes into the painting as well.

                      That is a fair price for that bed.

                            The one I built had cable wells so I had to roll the insides plus make lids for them that sit flush to the bed.
                            It was longer than yours, it had dual fuel tanks so I cut the fuel filler into the side of the truck bed for the fuel caps

                            I had to extend both fuel filler tubes.

                            My tanks were cut into the side of the bed, The tool boxes over the tires were bigger than yours and went all the way down, plus the day I spent with him when he came back into town to weld all the little pegs and rods for his specialty tools.

                            Then there were the fip up tie downs that sit flush when not being used.

                            SAE350, This was no week end project.

                            There were alot of little things that add up quick and it doesnt take long for them to add up.

                            If you have a decent place to build a truck and the time to do it then of course I see your point.

                            But my friend did not have the time or the place to do a bed like he wanted along with the tools and some of the fabricating skills that I have.

                            Here is a couple pics of my old clunker

                              Ok, now factor in the money you DIDN'T make building it? Why let a bed like urs go to waste with no paint....looks like it's just getting rusty?How much do you have in it? $2000 for materials....prob another grand in hardware(minimum I'd say)....1 week labor assuming you make somewheres around1500/wk? Sounds like you really busted ur ass to get it done in a week. And you still ned bodywork/paint....just sayin....

I have All the same things on my bed like mud flats that cost $30 at any truck stop and the same with the lights. I have gas shocks that are $20 at any auto parts store and the latches you can get pretty much any place to. I spent $40 each for mine. The flip down goose neck ball is $130 from reese. Fenders are $60 each. I know all these things because I have all the same stuff on my truck. I dont have paint on my bed but it only took me a week to make it look like this. As far as me not appreciating the craftsmanship, I never said that, I just said you spent way to much money and Texas haulers are not the only ones that can do it.
