And with that, I feel my level of function has increased exponentially. My kids can put their feet on the floor again as I move the "aisle pile" to my new locked storage bins. Recover gear and other dirty bits are no longer in the truck OR in the camper. Not sure yet where I'll put the diesel heater or ARB Compressor, but with infinite mount points, the possibilities are endless! The entire thing can be stripped down or put together in about 5 minutes. I can access my turnbuckles without having to be a contortionist.

I was truly impressed with the team at the SherpTek shop - fully dedicated to quality and genuinely excited about the build.

Will have the family out at the FWC NorCal rally, MULE Open House, NWOR, or BCOR - come say hi and grab a beer! Would love to hear about your ideas and see your build.

Wow, that flatbed looks fantastic! I am, however, a bit concerned for your brake lights. While they meet the letter of the law, I dont think I'd want to be the guy behind you when you brake hard. There just isnt enough surface area to be very noticeable.

Great truck and flatbed though, I look forward to seeing what comes next!

Beautiful flat bed. Out of curiosity how much did it run you?

Would love to go with something similar to this and am curious how much coin needs to get saved first.

So, the long lights on the outside are brake lights as well as the smaller one on the ends. There is a ton of brake light going on and they are VERY bright. I guess it's not obvious when the lights are off though - I'll get a pic to illustrate. Those little ones on the side would have been pushing it for sure, so I would agree if that were the case!
