Thanks for the input guys. I am not necessarily a "truck guy", but it is what I have at this time. I'm not terribly worried about the resale value of the truck, because I am in it way right. I definitely want to get the engine running and then take it from there. There have been some good suggestions on here as far as a bed for it. My original thoughts were to just put a flat bed on it. Then, I got to thinking maybe a stake bed. I'm sure my thoughts will change before that time comes. Keep the suggestions and comments coming if you will.
