How Do You Attach a Wood Bed to a Truck?

Wood truck beds are a great way to transport items with ease. They provide protection from the elements, are resistant to corrosion, and are easy to install. However, attaching a wood bed to your truck can be tricky if you don’t know the correct steps.

The first step in attaching a wood bed to your truck is to measure the dimensions of the bed and make sure it will fit on the truck. You should also make sure that you have all of the necessary tools for installation. This includes drills, screws, bolts, and washers.

Once you have all of the necessary tools and materials, you need to measure and mark where the bed needs to be attached. This will involve drilling holes in both the bed frame and in the frame of your truck. Make sure that you use screws or bolts that are long enough for both frames.

Once everything is marked out, you can start attaching the bed frame to your truck by screwing or bolting it into place. Make sure that each hole is properly aligned so that there won’t be any issues with movement later on. After all of the holes have been secured with screws or bolts, you can then attach any additional hardware like tie down straps.


Attaching a wood bed to a truck is not as difficult as it may seem. With careful measuring and marking out where it needs to go, as well as using appropriate screws or bolts for both frames, it can be done quickly and easily. With proper installation techniques and materials, your wood bed will last for years without issue.
