Decided to work on my bed cage, box sides today. Made a cage to support the bed sides, probably gonna add some more gussets and maybe a little bent tube, but I wanna keep it simple. Not sure I like it yet, still looks like it is missing something, ideas, thoughts?

I think I would add some sheet metal sides on the inside of the tube along the top of the frame from the cab back to the end of the "box" so that you can't see through. Thinking that might give you more of the look that I think you are trying to get.

I can't stand it without the bed. Maybe I will add more tube and skin it??

I think if you are going to run with the bed sides you need to fill in the rear and make a "functional" bed out of it. That is until you 4 link the rear and get rid of that ugly frame behind the cab.

Looks like it will be easy to do, and seems like a good idea. Maybe add a bed floor too.
