Is this what you're talking about?

Also, what purpose would you have for making your truck a flat bed? Traditionally flatbeds are dually, not only for the extra traction but because dually tires can handle a lot more pressure, thus, more towing capability.

Do you have any pictures of your truck?

Yeah I don't see any point in making your truck a flatbed, especially if it is a stepside, which means you have a shorter wheelbase, ie less hauling capacity.

flat bed

just kinda depends what you are looking for ,just cab wide they are available but you don't have a lot to work with.i put one on a old gmc s/b ended up being for a import truck so the long sills sat down over the frame to be as low As possible and it sat on the old bed mounts . here is a old pic its all i have .

flat bed

my bed on the old 61 gmc was rusted out also .so i mounted it as low as i could and got one as wide as the cab ,it helped because i worked at a truck equipment shop at the time ,and i could make it the way i wanted it .
