little odd

just looking to see waht kind of bed or such that you could stick into the back of a bronco. looking to be going out in the truck in a little while just a curious thought. there will be two of us and want to make it comfortable for the lady so i was thinking if anyone can think of a good covering for the back that is either a temp solution or other. i do need my back seat during hte week so just thought i would find out if anyone has ever done this and if so what have they been using..

i know buy a tent and sleep outside that was my idea but the little lady is correct when she says so sometimes.

Re: little odd

What? If you are talking about doing a cab conversion then your back seat will have to go. I'm going to be doing this soon. I'll be using a piece of smallish angle iron along the floor which I can bolt up a piece of plywood to be my bulkhead. I'm going to get a piece of cardboard first and make a template. Once everything looks like it will fit then I'll sawzall the plywood to fit and bolt it to the angle I've already attached to the floor and support it on the sides with some angle brackets. I want to get a piece of canvas to seal the cab off from the weather which can be removed in warmer weather. I'll probably use snaps for this. Dream it up and write it down. Once you feel like you have a plan go with it. It's how we all learn. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Take Care. NORM

Re: little odd

actually what i was refering to was sticking a matress into the back of my truck. the best idea i have seen for a cab conversion is what was done to my ihc scout they took a piece of angle iron nad welded it to the floor sealed the underside with scape metal. so you have a 90 on the floor with one side sticking straight up. that is where the snaps where installed to. it also sealed off the bac from the front completely.
