    Very nice fabrication skills. By the way what year is your truck?

    Yea I already thought about that before I built it. I just bought a can of spray in bed liner from lowes so I won't have that problem. It really works great.

    I just kind of eye balled everything. There are only a few lcos that use these kind of trucks around here. After I finished it I found one guy with an open landscape bed on his and took some measurements off of his. I was like 2 degrees off with mine but it works pretty good for me.

    It is a 99 with the 5.7 chevy. After a couple weeks driving it I am really starting to like it a lot.
