    Does anyone have any thoughts on removing the original steel box on a ford pickup and replacing it with a wooden flat deck with fold down sides? It strikes me this arrangement would save oodles of time and energy in loading/offloading equipment and materials. Has anyone done this using wood only? (Old truck - not willing to spend much for the alteration.)

    Yes. I used stake pockets with a dowel-peg sytem to keep the pockets from coming out of the pockets. When we needed to load or unload palletized materials, pull the stake and load, then replace into pockets.

    Good Luck this season!
