    I did a search but couldn't find any pictures of what I need. I'm going to put the boards on the bed of my truck so I can put the leaves back there, but I'm not sure where to start to install them. Also, I'd like to be able to put them on and take them off when I don't need them, as this is also my personal vehicle, and I don't really want to drive with two big boards sticking out of my truck. Any help any of you can give me would be most appreciated.

    If I were you I would make the box self supporting. You don’t need any supports permanently attached. What I did on my leaf box, on my trailer, is put large metal latches on the corners of the box and used 2x4's to support the plywood. I have 4 bolts holding the bottom of the box on my trailer. When I want to take off the sides I remove the 4 bolts and take out the latch pins. The sides come off easily piece by piece.
