We are adding wooden sides and back to our flatbed truck. We need to haul stuff and not have it fly out of the truck. Things like straw and hay bales, our recycling, auction stuff, groceries and lumber. After my husband finishes this, I will deck stain it for a longer life. This give our truck a more "farm" look too. And now our truck can hold more stuff safely on the roads. We got the idea after seeing other farm flat bed trucks added to this way. And if need be we can remove these sides in no time.
