      My rig

      What's up guys, I've been out of touch for a while. Been going wide open trying to get my business started. I tell you it has been difficult and expensive but I'm finally getting going. I managed to get my business lic, LLC, insurance on my truck and liability insurance. I am spending my time now going out to every place in the county to meet people and let them know I'm available. I have had some good response. Anyways here's my rig. It is a work in progress. The only thing I still need is a suitcase.

                    Flat Bed for 3500 (1ton)

                    After a long time in the steel fab biz, I built a lot of truck equipment. Pickup racks to heavy & specialized stuff. The first thing I've noticed about the posts are......the designs are too heavy. I was in the structual steel and pressure vessel biz mainly. I had several 1 tons at a time for hot shot, deliveries and pulling goosenecks. I found that the beds should be built to suit the intended work to be done. Winch beds were a bit heavier to withstand the stresses caused by gin poles and moving heavy stuff. All others to be used for hauling welders, steel were built as light as possible to do the job.

                    A plain flatbed was built with 3" Channel runners and 1x3x11ga X-Mbrs or 2x3x3/16" X-Mbrs. Sides were often 10 or 12" Jr C & The tail too. Cutouts for Lights & Tag fit nicely in this. I then used a 3" C drop down to a 3 or 4" x 6" TS for the bumper. I added a receiver tube properly supported to tow a bumper pull trailer. Lights & tool Boxes went below. as needed. The Headache Rack was usually 2x2x11Ga Sq TS with 3/4"x11ga Flattened Expanded metal.
                    Sometimes I mounted the tag plus load lights on the Headache rack. I cutout a space of the 11ga Deck plate floor at each front corner and welded it on the bottom of the X-Members. This gave me a place to store chains, binders, wood blocks, a Sledge quickly and securely.

                    Welder beds received a heavy smooth plate, IE: 1/2" in each back corner @ 18x24" as a place to weld, grind and use hard. Headache racks which were to be used to haul lots of long material would be built heavier depending on the expecter load. Near the back of each bed I set 2"x3/16" sockets on thebed runners, welded into the floor. This allowed me to insert a rack to support material such as 20' angles, tubing or beams. This was at the same height as the Headache Rack and kept the back material overhang above most following vehicles. (Put a flag on it anyway).

                    Lots of other refinements will occur to you as you work on it. IE: tiedown attachment points. Take a look at other 1 ton beds. Get some ideas. Keep it light. If for a welding truck, remember you are only going to haul a limited amount of weight & don't need it to be extremely strong & heavy.

                    Good Luck EdH
