If you can read directions, read a tape, and cut and weld steel, you’ll have no problem with building this flatbed!
I needed do do something about the regular factory bed that was on my 2008 F250 work truck. The bed supports had totally rusted out and the bed just flopped around as it rolled down the road. Since I often need to pull around a construction site air compressor, I thought it might be nice to build my own flatbed so I could mount the compressor on the truck instead of pulling it. That would let me get into any space where the truck could fit. I checked out a lot of YouTube videos of folks building their own beds and came to the conclusion that everyone did it differently.
I am not new to metal working, but I am also not a professional fabricator. I’m sure I could’ve come up with a flatbed that would work, but these guys made it SO EASY! The detailed instructions were great. The materials list was great. But the videos that you are given access to for the build are the best part. It was a fun and relatively easy build, as long as you can cut steel accurately.
As far as the kit I received goes, it was of great quality. The steel was clean, rust free, and there was no defects in any of the machining. All of the pieces fit perfectly during fabrication and final assembly (lights and wire).
Customer service was pretty darn good too. I only reached out via email once during the build for a simple question and they got back to me within an hour with a response. I also messed up one of the rubber grommets to one of the LED marker lights when I was installing it. I looked all over my local hardware stores for a new grommet, but had no luck. I reached out to DD Fab and asked about where to get one. They responded quickly and told me they would send out a new grommet (and light because they come together) at no charge to me. WOW!
Overall, I am completely satisfied with their product and how they stand behind it! I hope you enjoy making your bed the way that you want it. This kit will give you a great bed.
