Like the title says. Has anyone done this before? We have the old bed off my fathers truck and the cross members that are under the floor were rotted out. The remainder of the bed is in great shape. I was thinking maybe we could turn it into a trailer.

I've seen it done with the frame, axle and bed but not just the bed.

That is what I was thinking, maybe a call to the local junk yards is in the future. I don't want to spend a whole bunch of money on this though.

Those are beautiful, what did you use for a axle?

i have one of them not going out in the rain to take pic but the cheapest way is to just find old pickup cut the complete frame right behind the cab and of course take drive shaft out then all you need is weld you up a frame and hitch and redy to go
