Default Homemade pickup flatbed pics?

I have an old 1 ton Chevy dually that I'd like to make a flatbed for. Lots of ways to do it of course, just curious what some of you have built? Anyone have pics I can steal ideas from?

I was looking at the Lowes rental truck yesterday and I like how the bedsides fold up or down just like the tailgate with some heavy metal mesh....

I would have posted the same link as many ideas in that tray are very well done like the idea of the standard tow hitch as mount points.
