A lot, I am not a metal worker per say, but you do realize that the lip of the bed is to thin, you would have to fab all of your bed walls to the extreme. I dont know how it would turnout personally.

Cutting the bed rail/side making or finding a plastic/steel or whatever you plan on using for the box, making a drain hole, I'd use a plug sorta like a cooler has, then figure out how you want it to open and close, oh and some hinges or something so it opens and closes smooth

It would definitely be a fun lil project to undertake.. maybe retrofit your own cooler into the panels?

i would suggest fabbing the project using a scrap bedside could be easier than you can transfer onto the existing sheetmetal..
