    If you have any truck equipment dealers in your area that would be a good place to see if there are any available. If not try your local truck dealer most likely they have a name or a place that will have what your looking for. Or try this site www.readingbody.com

    I put an Alum-Line flatbed on my F-350. You can see a picture in the Finally got a picture... thread.

    There is a local company here that has nice little flatbeds starting at $595.00 CDN.Would be real cheap in US dollars :)

    How far from the border are you,might be worth a trip.

    Just make sure you get one with a "headache rack" to protect the back of the cab. Watch some of these cheaper models as that's where they're saving the money......:nono: :nono: :drinkup:
