    Looks like it works pretty well for you.
    It looks like it still leaves you with a lot of truck box space.
    How much do you notice the high center of gravity when you have the skid on?

    No problem with COG having the dual wheels even pull the forklift in the photo loaded. Previous truck had a flat bed and if I wanted to carry anything over 4 feet had to pull a trailer. Not only can I carry item 8' long I can lock the tailgate.

    Default That was my intent

    Like I said above It was a lot more useful for me to leave the factory bed and raise my welders. I have had numerous welding truck with flat beds like most welders but my bed was covered with my welding gear and never could carry any additional equipment or supplies. I can still carry a 4' x 8' sheet, ladder or 5 gallon buckets of primer paint. I don't know for sure but I think the factory bed is even lighter, as show in the photos I scale 11000 lbs with the tool boxes full and 21900 towing the fork lift in the first photo.

    Thanks

    I own a couple rigs of my own, I know how important it is to have the ability to carry 4 x 8 sheets of wood.

    I think putting your welders up high is a good idea if you want to work out of a pick up bed.
