Aluminum Flatbeds for PickupsWe've had tremendous interest in our new state-of-the-art aluminum flatbeds for pick-ups. For a full-size pickup they weigh just 350 lbs., less than half the weight of a conventional flatbed that's built as heavily as this unit. It's got 3-in. channel crossm em - bers, 4-in. channel stringers, and a 1/8-in. treadplate deck. The heavy-duty headache rack is fitted with see-through louvers. Sealed beam backup and tail lights are standard as are stake pockets and rub rails on both sides. There's also a covered opening for gooseneck hookup. We use all stainless bolts and lock nuts for assembly. The flatbed simply bolts on in place of the box and can be easily removed when the pickup is sold. We build the bed in one solid piece or in two pieces that fold up for ship-ping and make installation easy for one man. Lists at $1,425 for a full-size pickup. We'll custom-build for any model, full-size or compact. (David Whitford, Sun Valley Fabrication, P.O. Box 156, Hollandale, Wis. 53544 ph 800 236-4146 or 608 967-2146)
