My credo
built, not bought
1 gen 2 (white) no bed.2-Gen 3, the silver is a 97, the blue is a 94. same bed, very basic. Just plywood & 2x4’s.
all three trucks are longbeds (7ft)

yea i knew the frames were different on a long bed and short bed my 87 will be even harder to do a flat bet because of my rear tank tho i already have the deck part of the flatbed but i need to build the headache rack and the rear hitch/tail light plate

Mine has had a flatbed on it for many years, this was rev 1:


Rev 2 involved shortening the taillight portion and adding "fenders" for tire clearance

Ha! That was only on there for a short period of time...thought it would be nice for shovels and stuff, the self tapping screws I used ripped out almost immediately. A good idea that didn't work out as planned.
