Flat Bed Ranger?
Hey all! I took my bed off yesterday and it was held on by rust. So what I'm thinking is making a flat bed for the truck. My idea would be making it a dumping bed, with electric actuators on both sides of the bed towards the cab. One other idea I had was adding a fuel cell where my spare tire was with a spring loaded trap door in the bed for refueling and a switch in the cab to select the tank like in the older F150's.
I looked and measured out the area and what I came up with was a 6'x6' area to make a bed. My ideal way to make the bed would be to use wood and cover it with sheet metal then line-x or whatever over the metal. I'd also like to angle the sides of the bed about 45* and add some tiedowns.
I think this would be a pretty cool project. Anyone else have any comments or concerns? I welcome any suggestions as well!
