    Default Toyota Flatbed Ideas



    I collected a TON of different ideas, some from the web, some that I saw in person, when I was anticipating making a flatbed for my 87. I had a request to post these. Hope these help others in deciding which direction to take a project.

    And lastly, some pics of one that I saw locally. Notice the stock lights simply mounted horizontal and boxed in.

    I had told him that I intended to rattle-can the truck and put a flatbed on it. Couldn't justify the rattle-can until I built the bed as it wouldn't match colors, as if it does now. There are lots of ideas even though I had mine all figured out how it would fit my purpose and what it would consist of.

    Pretty cool variety Jeff, this one looks like a RC to me...

    Hehee......you could have just posted a link to the Pirate 4x4 "Flatbed" post you know

    This one is my favorite of the ones you posted....


    and this one is the All Pro Bed, which is what is on Air Randy's Gecko truck...


    I think smaller and simpler is the way to go personally. For me, I'm sticking with that idea and almost just going to leave it with nothing but a truck box, spare gas and an an ammo can or two, and a spare tire mount. Not very utilitarian I guess, but it keeps the weight down.

    A couple links for ya....

    Pirate "Flatbed Mini Truck" Thread... 17 whole pages dedicated just to flatbeds for Yota's... http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...light=flat+bed

    All Pro pre-fabbed flat bed kit.... http://www.allprooffroad.com/pickupt...ckupflatbedkit

    $499 gets you the tubing structure but not the sheet metal.

    Scotty at Addicted did a cool flatbed that he posted up recently. Very similar to the All Pro one, but with a couple cool touches to it... http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...light=flat+bed

    If I were to keep the truck, it still has to be able to haul a piece of plywood or an ATV. It would also have to accomodate side rails to haul stuff and hopefully be able to put a topper on. I had saved all these pics on my computer over the last several years, in anticipation of what mine would end up being. I was taking a bit of an idea from each one resulting in what I needed.

    Yeah, even RC can give ideas. It looks like it could be, but the bag hanging off the seats and the door hinges still in place lead me to believe it is likely real. Regardless, still some good ideas.

    The local one is pretty nice, One of the only things i would of done different was to swap the tail lights from left to right to have the brake lenses on the outside. It looks like it naturally tappers into the brake so i believe it would of looked cleaner. Just my

    That would be a pretty cool rig. LOT of work to make that look clean though. I don't do great body work. I also like the blue car sitting next to it.

    I like the one with the spare tire under the cargo area. it keeps center of gravity lower and still give plenty of room for gear.

    Ha, that OD Green truck on the second post is my truck... I wondered what it looked like before I got it. It has a different bed on it now; super-heavy 1/4" diamond plate flooring and 3/16" for about everything else. It's not square, the welds are crappy but it'll do until I get off my ass to rebuild it; I didn't build it.



    Those side rails were called "sliders" at one point as well; they barely stuck out past the cab pinchweld. I think it looks better now
