    Did u use a set of plans or just draw it up yourself ? Wanting to build a steel bed for my Dodge dully. Have a Alm. utility bed now but need more room & the Reamers I rebuild are very heavy, tearing up the Alm.

    I still have the headache rack and a couple braces to do but I'm doing them tomorrow. And I'm also building an alum. Frame for the welder with detachable wheels and lead racks that just locks in the bed.

    This is about the 10th one I built but the first on a half ton short bed. Its all in my head now but I do have a couple sets of drawings in the office somewhere. If you need a good design let me know and I will find em for ya and email em

    Also... the aluminum is going to be covered and sealed with really good plexiglas so it doesn't scratch as much

    Thank you. Weldonwelding, I work with a guy that has a Chev with a bed I like, I may just measure and adpt to my Dodge. Ill let u know if need them. Thx.
    Also I bought a Alm utility type bed from Alum-line In 2006 and they sprayed it with some type of clear called shark skin. Alum stayed like new for 5 years. I'm gona try & find that stuff really prolonged looks & life of bed.

    Not sure what ya got for rear suspension but if it's stock you should look into airbag helpers. I have them on mine & it's great to dial in for different weights.
