no pictures.

i left the floor of the bed there and cut the rest away.

i then used pressure treated 2x 12 .i put one about the width of the truck just behind the cab then i run 2 down the length of the bed just to the inside of where the wheel well cuts into the bed.

then another to complete the box at the end of the truck .

i screw the 2 long ones to the end ones and then screw the whole thing down to the bed from underneath..

i top it off with 2x8 white pine ..i left a and acces rectangle close to the front and big enough to put tool boxes in and my jack.

this left almost the whole bed underneath a wood deck (minus the access)..

i trimmed every edge with a 2 inch galvanized angle ..even the access.

this made it last and was almost bullet proof..i painted the deck with rustoleum.

for the tail light i made holes for the existing tail ights and screwed the into place sideways..

i used the extra space from before the wheel wells and behind for an extra battery and extra jack ..

noone ever knew i kept all my tools in there ..and it left the whole deck free for what ever..

i was a mill rite for many years so i just make what i need.

i did make one for a toyota from scratch..

once the bed is removed i used 3x3 wood from an old pallet.

one each down the frame rails where the bed went ..

where i bolted them down i used a cut tire as a gasket ..

once i had those on it was easy to just drywall screw a deck on..

then again i trimmed it with angle around the edges .

well, dont have pics yet, but i made my bed from pressure treated 4x4's going across the frame where the bed bolted down, and deck boards on top going the length of the bed. then i put a deck board down the side to make it look better. its big enough to fit a full size truck tool box in the back. with factory lighting still intact.
