You have a flat bed. Maybe something different?

Definitely not a flatbed, but that's just my opinion.

Sometimes, guys can get away with a flatbed on a two ton with dual wheels, but on a pick-up, you have to have a nice tin box. That's my vote.

A pickup bed was the original idea, but I do like the heck put of my chevy too. Big rig tires would require the flatbed to be way up there.

Maybe a wrecker/ service style of bed with the rounded off top and rear. That would hide the fender wells and the higher bed floor.

Two more days before I get to drive to Nebraska and pick up my new cab. I think my arm has healed up enough (surgery for a pinched nerve) to safely do it. I can hardly wait to see it in person and see what kind of work I have ahead of me.

Reading about the new Euro 7 emissions regulations....I may be building my very own Mad Max truck. The drivetrain is all million mile stuff. I just need to add massive bumpers.

Is there a way that you could graft the new cab with the fire truck body to make it closed cab and keep the unibody style look?
