I dont really use my bed that much (hardly ever)...except for my offroad gear (chains, hi lift jack, tow straps, etc.)...I use my F250 for hauling firewood/plywood, etc.

I put the bolts up through like that so I could finish painting the top while the bottom was still partly wet. Then when I went to mount it, I flipped the bolts over and put them down through and bolted it through the bed.

Nice work! One of these days I'm going to learn how to weld. There are so many projects I would like to do that, that would be handy for.

Looks awesome. I have thought about putting a spare tire carrier in the bed of my truck but I use it to haul stuff and I think it would be in my way.

Truck (Noun) any of various forms of vehicle for carrying goods and materials, usually consisting of a single self-propelled unit....

If the bed is filled with spare tire, it isn't a truck any more.
