    I would definitely beef up the hinge set up. Some 1.5" .120 wall dom tubing with solid 1.25" round stock for a pin would be a proper set up

    Ive actually been trying to catch the wolverines and machine his bones down to hinges buts it's been rediculously difficult to catch him.

    Fantastic job. Love my flatbed. Had it off this summer. Coated the underside. Will paint top side soon. Great job.

    Some updates. Bed is painted. Built bolt on brackets for the tail lights which I'll have wired this week Im hoping (the guy who does it did my plows and I can't figure it out for sh*t)

    Great job! Thanks for sharing. I have a used flatbed to put on one truck, plan to build one for another. I am going to make a removable dovetail to use in the summer so we can load zero turn mowers then take it off for the winter when plowing.
