    Does anyone know of a company that makes sideboards for pickup beds? I want to raise the sidewalls of my pickup bed, so I can fit more back there. I've seen some threads from people who've made their own, but I'm wondering if you can just buy them. Thanks

    We got a laminated beam (LVL) from the lumber yard. Its 2 feet wide but you can get them in pretty much every size.

    What did you use for the vertical boards? How high did you go - the cab or higher?

    i have seen some people using 2x4's cut down a lil to fit in the holes on the bed and a board off of an old fence to make the long run down the side looks cheep but works

    I would go to the top of the bed for height for standard hauling. If you want to make a leaf box, you could go over the cab.
