W300 9' bed question?

Postby Wreckerslant » Fri Mar 10, 2017 11:38 pm

I've got a 66 w300 that had a flatbed that I removed and recently bought a 9' bed off a 59 w300 that looks to be identical to the factory bed that should be on this truck the bed floor and mounts was replaced with sheet metal which I can handle making mounts, just curious if this is the same bed thanks.

Do you know if it is the same style as a '67 W300?

I have '67, but cant take a photo for another 2 weeks as I am traveling.

the 59s had fuel tanks where the running boards go on the W300s. if its a dually they the tires wont fit. the Dually 9 foot bed trucks actually have a wider rear axle than the flatbed trucks and the single rear wheel trucks did. for a dually you would need to find one of the wider axles or make spacers.
