    I have a king cab pick up, that extra lngth makes all the difference, espescially for carrying long stuff, over the roof!

    My actual bench is an angle iron top frame , this is 40x40 by 6mm
    Some wood 20 by 120mm
    And a 3mm sheet metal
    The legs are just 30x30 box tubing

    Is strong enough for the purpose
    The next bench I will build I will use
    The same design or just some modifications
    As adding some T section between the frame and the sheet metal to give more rigidity to the top
    Nothing more than
    For what I do is enough
    The author of this topic could use 6mm and add a sub structure to give more rigidity

    Useless things. Never owned and wouldn't bother. Stick with a decent sized van.

    Ive Owned 3 just love them , When racked they are racked they are really good, comfortably slide 8x4s in with tail gate dropped, ive always had a trailer aswell makes carrying ballest easier plus legal. Max tow is 3t braked

    Change of career will make it more sensible.

    Plus i think they look the nuts even just the rear quarter
