The PERFECT set up... Well done. I had a 02 Cummins with a FWC and never had enough room to store ********...Always thought a contractors bed would be the bomb.

Added a few pics to the Google album of interior if truck and camper and outside kitchen setup. Will adds more to this thread once I get back to my computer.

Great rig (I have a similar ’98 Ram w/ the 12 valve & club cab doors that open : ). The custom utility bed makes me drool. Also, where did you source the sweet rear bumper/hitch w/ singable spare tire and bike rack?

Perfect setup! The contractor boxes are aluminum with a steel frame?

Just saw the details in the description -- nicely done! Love this setup.

Thank you! The front boxes are all Aluminum. Rears are 16ga steel & powdercoated(this size wasnt available in Aluminum). As you could probably tell from the photos, these started as stock truck boxes (Buyers Products) thate were selected for the door size I needed. Then they got cut, sectioned and rewelded to fit. This way they function and seal perfectly.

Rear bumper is custom built in-house. I needed to move the bumper and hitch up and back for the new bed/camper setup. Also you can't fit a 35" spare under these trucks (****** Dodge?!) so it got a swingout and the hitch addition seemed like a no-brainer. I also wanted it to swing driver side which seemed impossible to find.

I'd really like to sell this setup together since it is mostly tailor made. Make an offer!

Or potentially willing to separate. Bed would have to go first. Make an offer!
