We had the system in a ford at work and it was pretty awesome.  The two pull out drawers for storage had great rollers and pulled / pushed in and out very easily.  It was a very sturdy system.  The only problem was the amount of space it took up .  If you have a canopy, it took up 1/4 of the total cargo capacity so fitting larger items in your canopy / bed was not going to work.  If you didn't have a canopy the depth of you bed was now 10" ish.....  I think the ideal situation for this set up is a guy that camps and sleeps in the back of his canopy.  You have storage underneath and you can put a thin mattress on top.  Head room would be an issue but for sleeping you don't need a ton of head room.  The lockable storage is worth its weight in gold and they are very sturdy units.

Thanks for that info. Ya that is the one thing I don't like about it is losing bedspace and I do have a canopy on my truck.

Make one
Can use 2 x 8's for the frame beside the wheel wells and middle support and 2 x 6's for the drawers. 1/2 inch plywood for drawer Bottoms and 5/8 ply for the top. Can get rollers for drawers to roll on. Or can use 2 x 10's for frame and 2 x8's for drawers,  that make the top even with the height of the wheel wells. Yea still going to cut down on headroom but the one I made for an 87 F250 with a cap still had room to sit yoga style and plenty of headroom for sleeping even with a 4 inch foam mattress
Does take 2 sheets of ply to completely cover frame for flush fit side to side of truck bed.

That was my plan but thought I would see if I could find one used . The Decked version would be a lot lighter and easier to take out of the truck when I don't want it in there  than a home made version..
