i dunno about TX, but in IL your setup would be illegal due to passengers having access to the cooler full of booze while the vehicle is in motion. even if no one is drinking, the method of transportation is illegal. just a heads up; sumthin you might look into before someone else looks into your cooler.

In NY it is only the driver.

And it is not illegal to drink and drive. It is illegal to be drunk and drive. But if you are drinking and driving you can get an open container ticket.

He did it to keep the bed out of the way of rocks and his tires flexing.


re-read the question i asked... i know why he bobbed the bed, that's obvious, i wasn't sure why he had cut the entire center section out, his was the only one i had seen done this way, but now I understand for the ease and non hassle of having to realign it

I've seen it done this way a few times, I'm not too worried about it, I may cut the whole middle out the same width and build like a frame going down the middle thats a little lower than the floor.. dunno yet

Do you have pictures of him bobbing his bed? Cause I didn't know he did that. I thought he only dovetailed it.
