    i want thinking maybe i could cut the back half of a k5 off and take the outer skins off and bolting it on the back of my truck. i was thinking of using the holes that hold the shell down to run some angle iron down the sides then one across the front of the tub on the top and bottom then a screen to keep my stuff from falling out and for support. then see if i could use my old tailgate or if not make one or somthing. this is just an idea. not set in stone yet. keep in mind my rig is a 83 k5 frame with a 75 p/u cab on it. what do you guys think. could this work and look decent.
