That is a lil different.. not what I was expecting. What made you do the wood?

I been eyeing an aluminum flatbed for sometime.. And depending on how the next couple months go if plans change for me I may have to put my head down for the grind and save up the other half and just pull the trigger!

I want to have the Norweld tray and canopy [ https://www.12degnorth.com/product-p...luminum-canopy ] thrown on the back of my rig so bad I can almost taste it!! problem will be getting used to the Flip-Pac being gone.

Make sure you post finished pictures so we can see the whole thing

NM I wouldn't be a fan of, CO, AZ, NV, UT would be way better choices unless NM had a specific purpose but... They don't call it NM for nothing... lol

Seriously though, every state has its pro's and con's I guess..
