I got my first utility bed in about 1983, can't figure how I operated without one.

To the OP's question...

At Tahoe guys with utility beds bolted an 1-1/2" angle on the inside of the bed at the top of the boxes and dropped in a piece of 2-4-1.

Many guys had side boxes that fit between the rack posts. Same thing with the angle iron and 2-4-1. Worked great keeping the snow out and the bed useable. Dogs sure loved it also...

Re: Anyone Running A Pickup Pack???


i have a soft tanoue cover and it keeps things pretty dry. its not very secure as its just snaps but i dont tend to go to bad areas, and my truck doesn't look like a contractors, it looks like a yuppie truck that tows a boat on weekends or something.

when i used to have the f250 with the plow i had an open bed, and i would always leave it open. if i was plowing a lot i would take the tailgate off even for better visual of the rear bumper. of course now i have a back up camera for that.

A utility bed is overkill for me. I just sold one i had in my backlot this past summer. I want to be able to pull the lid on the Pickup Pack and load the ATV to go hunting Ect. Likely going to go with this one as i don't want the cross box. I would not get the roll out either......

So that set up minus roll out is about 4k delivered? How wide is it between the boxes? looks to narrow for a ATV? Does that also include the back ladder rack?

With the cross box it's 4K. Without i'm not sure. You can buy boxes cheaper but i can't find any manufacturer who builds them out of 1/8th 6064 Marine Grade Aluminum. Each 90" side box is $895, Headache rack is $500, Not sure what the full length top is. Yes, Ladder rack comes with it. Their is also a frame you really cannot see in the pics. This allows the whole thing to go in the truck as one unit with no adjustments. Just bolt it down. As far as width, their is 48" between which will allow the ATV to load up.........
