Bed Delete ??'s

Hello again,

Well we've pulled apart one of our Teryxes and I've discovered just how heavy that damned bed is...I'm curious if anyone makes an alternative to an aluminum replacement bed for the bed delete. I've come across one on the 'net somewhere that claims it weights 25lbs or whatever. I dont want to just buy the tubes and hang the fenders on the rear because riding down here in the southeast mud and other debris will be a constant pounding in the back of the head. Maybe something as simple as some inner fender liners would work. i'm not really sure what all is needed. I dont need to retain the bed tilt, and I guess opening myself up to bed delete increases my cage options and such. Just bouncing some ideas off the wall to see what sticks. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

What I did was just pulled the bed off and unbolted the top half from the floor and then I just cut a piece of aluminum diamond plate that matched the old bottom and bolted it on then used 1 inch square aluminum tubing between the floor and frame and bolted it down. End result was a bed that was alot lighter and still strong enough to haul what I wanted and looks stock.

We carry the Bed Delete kits that are full alum skins... not just pipe that holds the fenders. We have various options as well.

We make 3 different styles...
Stock with wheel wells for those with a stock suspension...



Stock withOUT wheel wells for those with a +5 or better suspension...



Angled kit for a "different look"...recommended +4 kit or better...



We also make a 48" wide version that will fit a full 48" Twisted Stitch rear bench seat...perfect for your 4 or 5 seater builds...It comes standard with a .125 floor for the additional foot traffic those applications typically require...

All beds are built from .065 aluminum and save you a WHOPPING 70 lbs. off the stock OEM bed weight. Stainless steel button head bolts and nylok nuts are included for a easy trouble free install which usually takes about 2 hours. You may also substitute a .125 floor with any of the standard width bed kits if you wish for an additional fee...

You can get them from either me directly or Endi at SXS Customs...

also ride in the southest and thus hit mud most times out. The only problem with the aluminum deletes is without the tilt, its harder to get all that crap cleaned out. This coming from someone who has an aluminum bed. no doubt it much much lighter. moving the stock bed by yourself is a ball buster, the sandjunkie beds are super light in comparison. you dont need the tailgate to still work do you?

Sorry to be so long on getting back to the post, busy with work and all lately.

I dont need the tailgate to work, hell, i really dont need a bed, just something to hold a cooler and maybe a strap or tool bag...I'm not totally sure if i want to even bother with an aluminum replacement or try and make something custom stemming from a different cage...theres just so many options for these things out there and no one around here really does anything out of the ordinary with theirs so I dont have much to look at...
