OBS Flatbed pics

hey all,

I am debating putting a flatbed on my truck as the box bed is in rough condition. Do any of you have pics of one on so I can actually see what it would more or less look like? If it has stacks thats even better as I want stacks as well. Thanks

the problem that I have heard of is some states when you put a flatbed on a truck, it increases the registration fees, as now it really is considered a commercial vehicle, don't know how true that is just what i have heard.

I've never heard of that,

But i noticed your profile says your from NC. Here in NC that definitely isn't true. Putting a flatbed on your truck doesn't change anything registration wise. They could care less what bed your truck has on it.

No need to worry!!!


Where in NC are you from anyways?
