Alloy planking will is the way to go. Any steel box you put in the build get it galvanised. 

 

Sick of steel going rusty and having to paint to keep looking good!

If you want fairly cheep, use box steel to make a frame that sits on to the bed (paint with rust proof paint) use marine ply and cover it in varnish for the insides of the box and then use ally composite for the outsides. Investors done mine like this and it’s held up for nearly 3 years now. I’ll send a pic through if you like.

Has anyone tried painting shuttering ply with epoxy to seal it?

Anyone considered cutting down the tipper bed (as marked in photo) and welding new corner posts on ready for ally box build, so a tool box could be fitted behind cab without the whole lot tipping?

My new chip box on the little truck. I need to have a proper measure up but should hold about 10 cube.

Overload if it does.
