Thanks bud!! Everything I have is a work in progress. We have quiet winters for the most part - so I do something different to them almost every winter!! That truck has 14' flat and then the dovetail (almost 4').
When I got it it was just a flatbed. I have built and built - definitely saved $$$ that way.

wow, nice skills, i couldn't tell to be honest...those beds are insanely priced, $7800 for a typical landscape bed, but for some reason it's cheaper if we have it custom made

any tips or suggestions? we are looking to get a 12' with a 4' detachable dovetail...

Well then!!! you need to look at my other truck!!! it is on here. let me see if I can find the link..
sides - do you want permanent or removable?
dovetail - make the detachable part as EASY and simple as you can or you wont use it!!
