who here, that has a stepside pu, has replaced the rotten wood in there stepside bed with diamond plate? I have got the wood out and all but the two strips on the side cut out. It seems that all but the back of the bed uses the wood to hold the cross pieces to the bottom of the bed sides. I have not got to the point yet of taking these pieces loose but not sure how they are attached. They must be spot welded. But just looking for a few thoughts if anyone has tried to do a nice job of this on there truck. It looks to me that the only nice way is alot of welding which will make the taking off of the bed a very hard job if it ever has to be done. The reason i mention if the bed has to come off is that when i find the metal to do a cage or roll bar i'm not quite sure how i want it or what metal that i will find to be in the budget. Any ideas?
