Well new to me anyway. It's a 95 Chevy k3500 4x4 4-door. Now I can haul my bees, some helpers and my loader wherever I want.


Here is a before the conversion picture.

Cool! I want, I want, I want one too!

Of course I gues I could take the bed off my extended cab 4X4 and put on a flatbed.  The flat bed is definitely better for hauling bee hives, bales or straw and hay, and other large bulky items.  I could get at least 40 bales of hay on that flatbed and can only fit 24 on my PU.

Thanks guys, It is the same bed I had put on my other truck which was only a half ton. It will hold 24 hives on pallets single stacked and 48 doubled up like most around here do. It has only a 8x8 bed, think of what I could do with a 14' bed. Smiley

Nice everybody gotta have one.  What could you do with 14 ft bed 2 pallets high, 2 wide, very 3 foot = 64 hives that is 4way pallets.  Can get 3 high if single story hives.  Anyway that's how I figure how many I can load when shopping for trailers.  Incase it'll help someone.  I like the cab room plenty for help and bee stuff that don't need to get wet.  I want our next truck to have a extended cab too.  Maybe not a crew cab but something and that 4x4 is the bomb as my kids say you gonna like that.  I did more than I thought on our first that was 4x4.
