ok so my truck the 1989 f-250 you guys might have seen on here. i cut the bed down to 8*7 feet. i threw out all the rack sides because they were rotted out. i was thinking should i make some nice sides pressure treated 2*4s would this be a good idea? also make barn doors in the back? or should i just stick with the flatbed? i do want sides for clippings, mulch, debris, ect. and i love building things so is this a good idea just for the season?

I have not seen your truck, you might want to post up some pics so we can give better opinions.

If you can build it go for it, instead of buying something premade...
