pics of the new flatbed

I am finally back from getting the new flatbed installed. To say I am happy is an understatement. My 2 quads fit great on it but the tiedowns need a bit of work.

It was done by Proline Fabrication in Prineville Oregon. They also do pretty nice looking bumpers

it is an all wood deck which is why I went with it. It is a tongue and groove treated pine and holds up alot better than you would think. This is my second bed with this deck and I have never had any complaints. I have no idea what the weight is, never worried too much about it. I purposly had them leave the gooseneck off because I have a tongue pull trailer and load my 2 quads on the deck. I can't remember what the color is but it is grey with black fleck powder coat

That looks great. I would like to do one some day but I have a short bed. I wish I would have bought a long bed, much more options.

Nice job!

Looks good. I like the headache rack too. We'd call it a cowboy 1 ton around here, meant in a good way

Nice looking flatbed. Clean, simple, and functional. How many tie downs does it have?




And BTW... Your mail man is running late.
