That's awesome looking, but imagine trying to move your gear around in it, especially with a buddy coming along. And getting to the snopark and trying to get all geared up with no space... 4 door for the win. Hell, two people regularly us up pretty much all the room in the back of my Mega cab :LOL:

Dad's truck: 2008 F-450, H&S deleted, Bradford flatbed, TDK front bumper, 30" Rigid light bar that cuts through a snow storm pretty well, rear-facing cargo lights on the headache rack for night/early AM loading, Titan underbody long range fuel tank, and Michelin winter spec tires. Wide track front end on the F-450 gives the truck the same turning radius as my supercab, short box F-150.

Deck started as a 14' 3-place sled trailer. loaned it out to someone from work, came back totaled :rolleyes:. This was the best use we could think of for it. Chopped 2' off the rear to clean up the damage and cut the front off straight. Re-capped both ends and re-located the plug for the lights to the rear. Still has ramp storage underneath. Welded on a few pieces of tubing to fit in the stake pockets. Four pins (one on each corner) and one person can load/unload it since it's all aluminum. Superclamps used in the center track grooves and some extra hooks floating around in the grooves to move around when securing other cargo. Can't see it under all the other bags (was on a cross country trip), but bolted a cross-bed truck toolbox to the front of the deck for more storage. Four bolts to pull the toolbox off and hauling 3 sleds would be no problem again.

Nice repurpose job!
