Got lights?

So are you doing something like this?




Or a true rollback carrier style like this:




If you do the second one, you'll need a badass bumper!

I was planning on it being like the first one but the front 1/3 of it being cab width and the back 2/3 being frame width and have them meet up with a slight angle maybe a 30* or less angle to meet them together. And not sure about the bar yet.
everything is on hold though because my truck might be sold this saturday i am not cetain about that though.

If you don't sell it, go for the 2nd one, it looks cooler

Then you can put a ram on it and make it tilt so you can load stuff like ATVs easily

When I hurt the bed of my Silverado, I considered making a flatbed type thing. I didn't want a utulity bed look, but more a custom hot rod truck vibe. I came out with a design like this made from polished diamond tread aluminum

The deck surface would fit between the rear wheels, the sides & back would fold down to make the shape and trailer fenders would cover the rear wheels.
