flatbed ideas....

So Im just now finishing up my winch bumper and am getting ready to start work on my flatbed, I want to mount a gen. air compressor, and welder on it along with tool boxes. there is a truck running around town with exactly the bed style/ look i want but can seem to catch him long enough to get a pic, and cant seem to find any pics of what i want on the web. If you guys have some pictures of your beds, i would like to see them.

thanks, chris

Look at Highway Products. I like their flatbeds and it's what I would put on mine if i was going that way.

Heres a couple welding trucks. i guess it depends on what type of work you're doing. Mine's mostly a flatbed because i do a lot of ornamental and misc. metalwork (first couple pics) the rest are mostly misc. metal and pipeliners.
