Instructions/guidance on how to build a wood bed for my truck

I am a gal who likes to do her own stuff and I was thinking of replacing the bed of my truck with a wooden one I can build myself. I don't want anything fancy, I just use the truck to make dump runs and for yard work so all I am looking for is functionality with very little expenditure. I have plenty of wood and fasteners of every kind. I appreciate any advice you can offer or reference manuals I could access on-line or at my local library. Thanks, Carolyn

SOURCE: 1988 F150 w/o a bed

Much easier to get one from a salvage yard. Only has about six main bolts in the bed, four on the sides (support rods), and the filler hoses. Also don't forget to disconnect the plug for the rear lights.

Brake line leaks above the gas tank-is there any easy way to fix this


Easy? No. Easier, yes. Remove truck bed bolts (~4-6, not hard to remove), raise bed by blocking bed up with 4x4 or 6x6 wood blocks. Access brake lines, fuel pump, etc. I lifted mine by myself to replace a fuel pump. I may have learned about tip on fixya long ago myself.

My 97 nissan hardbody's is rusting and i cant find a replacement for the truck bed. The frame is fine just the bed is rusted and falling off.


I had the same problem on my 95 and I build a replacement bed out of 2x4's. Most of the beds you would find will have the same problems you are having with the current one. Your lucky in that the frame is't rusting too. The bodys and frames go on these trucks long before the driveline.

Filled truck up with fuel and fuel guage stoped working


There is a TSB for this issue ( TSB 08-2-9 ).

The problem is high sulfur content fuel will cause a problem with the fuel level sending unit, and cause it to read incorrectly.

The 2 times I had this happen, I was not at my normal brand fuel ( had it happen with Shell fuel both times ).

I fueled at 1/2 tank with my normal brand, and then after another 1/2 tank fueled again, and the problem went away.

If you want, the TSB lists new revision fuel level senders, that you can drop the fuel tank, and replace your exiting one with to cure the problem.

The correct P/N depends on your truck cab & bed config, and options

faxonautoliterature lists a build manual for your truck for $30. I bought one for my 82 Chevy and it is a copyof the instructions for each station on the assembly line. Could be exactly what you are looking for. They also have the dealer service manual for under $50. Hope this helps.

Oil pan removal on a 97 jeep wrangler


Instructions can be found in any basic manual but the simple version is to remove anything obvious that will be in your way (starter, trans lines etc). Disconnect both engine mounts and raise engine to get better clearance (watch stuff on top so you don't break anything) I usually stuff a couple of 2x4 wood blocks between engine & mounts to support it. Remove all pan bolts and take it down (remember pump pickup will interfere) Do what you need to do, then reverse process.

Dual tank no fuel/1989 F250


The metal fuel line on top of my 89 Ranger fuel tank rusted out. What a pain. For all the trouble of dropping the tank and wrestling with the fuel assembly, definately put in new stuff, don't try to fix anything with jb weld like I did. It's a shame the body bolts are such a bear, or I'd say to try to remove the bed for a good look-see. After all was said and done, I cut a trouble door in my bed so I could replace the filler hose if I ever get one. Just don't do any cutting while the fuel tank is there, even with a saw or grinder, they all spark!
