OWNER SAYS: “This past fall I was rear-ended and decided it was time for a flatbed. A friend of mine is a highly experienced welder and built a custom flatbed from the frame up exactly how I wanted it. I also plow in the winter to make some extra money and keep myself out of trouble. This truck has not only been a reliable piece of equipment, but a great learning experience through the engine, drivetrain, body, and suspension. Built Ford Tough!”
