they have the gas can tool boxes that would work well for that. 2 actual gas cans and 2 of the gas can tool boxes
2wd plates and shocks in stock location are the bees knees aren't they.
How is the bed coming?
I decided to use some decent angle iron to lace the top rails together and beef the whole thing up. Paycheck didn't go very far though so I will get that next week. No reason to half a$$ it, I got nothing but time. Looking into leading the seam on the bedsides so if I pull that off it should be some interesting tech.
I can almost hear it bark, reminds me of a Downey, too. Miss them, wish he'd looked into something more than just desert racing. Good products, nice guy.
I just cant believe you voluntarily work in that weather... but kudos for gettin it done.
I vote the flat bed, for several reasons.1) Toyota beds, especially on the 1st and 2nd gen pickups, like to rust.2) Certain types of work, such as hauling feed, lumber, tanks, and firewood (or really anything but dirt), are way easier with a flat bed.3) A flat bed can easily have sides attached if needed3) If you do end up doing a flat bed, it will be something cool that I can drool over as you build it and maybe take inspiration from someday.Up to you. There is, of course, the danger that if it comes out looking too spiffy you'll end up ruining the sleeper look.
I used to run a flatbed on my '94 years ago. I'll add to this list...5) You can pivot off of things with reckless abandon.6) Can be used to bridge small gulleys for less capable vehicles.7) Vastly superior for hauling and violently driving out from under 1,500 lb bales of hay.
