    Anyone know where I can find an affordable flatbed? I have a 95 ram 3500 dually. The previous owner made a flatbed, but I would be affraid to drive it down the road the way it looks now. Im in NJ also, thanks.

    I had one made up about 6 years ago by a local welding shop. Just made up some rough scetches and checked with a few guys for quotes. The best thing about it was it was cheaper than a new reading/stihl model and I got it exactly how I wanted it, back rack/tie downs.

    The only down fall was I had to do all the lighting myself. I just ordered the lights online and gave them to the welder so that he could fab the mounts and know the sizes for the wholes
