    i have been searching this forum and google for a while but i cant seem to find any flatbeds that lay frame. i have a 52 chevy 3600 flatbed and im thinking about bagging it as a flatbed if it doesn't look too gay. can someone Photoshop it for me?

    To make it look right, you will need to raise the deck a little. I have seen a couple that notched the bed for wheel wells to take up the drop, that looked terrible. If you do raise the deck, make sure to fill the gap between the frame and deck like the blue one above. You may be able to make it work cool with blocks on the rear and bags on the front, as most flat decks sit with a rake anyways. The thing that I think would add to the look would be to use a wheel design that looks like a heavy duty truck wheel, and try to make the deck look like a commercial truck would have. Alot of guys throw a deck together like a sun deck on a house and the truck ends up looking more "broke hillbilly" than cool . Good luck, and do what suits you

    275/55/20= 32" tall

    My bed is raised maybe 6" compared where it hit the cab before the frame swap. It is on a S-10 now.
