For the diving board question? The plywood is thick enough so that is does not sag. plus I have a three 2.5" runners on the bottom of it. Then make sure you don't pull it out too far. I pull it out until there is only about two feet left in the rails. The tail gate helps to support it too. But some support legs on the end would not hurt if you plan on putting a heavy load on it. This is the reason for putting the fuel bins on the other end.

rails have to be something like the rails on a filing cabinet.

I made mine like a pocket . The top and sides are high and wide just to fit a flat sheet (pull out) I can store stuff on top just like the bed of truck and still pull out table . No metal tracks or rails

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

Lol, I built one of those a few months ago. I got tired of crawling in my truck everytime something slid to the front. I built mine out of 1" square tubing and some garage door tracking. I'll have to post some pics....

once built, it also makes a nice work bench at the field

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Scott011422, I thought about using garage door track. I would like to see some pictures of how you mounted it to the bed. The wood tracks I made are screwed the the bed liner with deck screws. Glad to see my project sparked so much interest. There will probably be more slide a beds at RC fields in the near future.

Our trip to Ircha was a little more complicated than a slide.

I almost forgot to mention, Paul Sr. got stuck in between the car and trailor so we left him there.

Have not gotten that far yet. This is just a temp proto. I may have 100 bucks into this. This one should hold a couple of hundred pounds on the very edge fully extended. The one I will be building after this will be able to hold roughly 1200 pounds.

Some type of hauler is always needed for a fleet. This is what my friend and I came up with for the Jeep. Actually it’s serves for other daily needs so I just kept it on the jeep for good. when the door is closed it locks into the grove.

I like the setup you have on the pickup. Looks easy to work on while at the field, nice job.
