Get pressure treated wood and galvanized screws/hardware.. It will make removal that much easier. Build leaf box like house walls, take your time and you'll be good. Also put 2x4's width ways on each ends of the box after your done..(walls be very wavy and floppy without)... I went roughly a foot above my cab, on my f150 and had nice results. I also had room to hang stuff etc, Good luck and post PICS

Also make sure the box can vent!!
