Flat Bed On A 3500

I have a '12 ram 3500 dually, the back it getting destroyed with dings and dents, it is a work truck, I was thinking of removing the bed and rear fenders and putting a flat bed on it with 2' high sides, removal if possible. I also want to have my ladder rack welded to it also.
Any thoughts on what I should be looking at or pictures of yours?

Aluminum would be my vote. I have yet to see a stock rack on a flatbed that is really setup to carry material properly. You could get a custom rack made but it would take some planning and $$$$

Re: Flat Bed On A 3500

Our 1 ton dually has this 9' bed. The bed is 11 yrs old, still straight and solid. We made 16" side and tail boards. The head board on the beds are super rugged. They also double as a front rack. We have no issues moving 24' picks. http://www.knapheide.com/product/hea...atform-bodies/

Re: Flat Bed On A 3500

a flat stake bed, with some stake sides made for it, and a ladder rack


That one might not have stake pockets, but the general idea is there
