    My situation is similar to your original story, Ram 2500 that meets my immediate needs, but I need more truck to haul a motorcycle and other toys. Next truck will get a custom bed like yours, I may bug you for details

    Thank you! I don't have any regrets anymore. Buying the truck at auction with no bed saved me half of what a new one was and you are right, I'm still under the new price substantially or if I had to buy another chassis cab I would be too. After reading some other build threads whenever you are doing a custom build there is going to be money spent, most just don't talk about how much. Hell, I just read someone else spend quite more than I did on a bed system and it ended up as "yard art". To each their own, people will have their opinions.

    That's funny because I hear that ALOT! It's always a funny topic. Trust me, each one of those receivers was put there for a specific purpose, and besides who doesn't love the versatility a 2" receiver allows for future things not thought of? Hopefully in the next year I'll get a chance to weld together some of what I'm envisioning for them. First will be the fold down spare tire holder to the left of the camper door.
