Default Re: Looking for a new Pickup Bed

I went down after Russ/40's remark and started looking at the thickness of the bed. I have some scrap metal - about 16 gage - and it is too thin.
So, I need to determine how thick the metal is on this bugger. It might
Be easier welding than I thought.

I may even go with a repair rear channel, instead of buying the more costly
U channel.
Anyone know what thickness Of steel I should buy?

Also, how are are the rivets to set If I go with new stake pockets?
