with the better explaination, i think i can picture what youre looking to do. have you thought about a cap for the bed?
or something to build in/on the existing bed? if you remove the bed and build on the frame,new brake/running lights have to be figured out, the gas tank straps could be mounted on the bed frame, so new strap hold downs would have to be figured out, wiring could be mounted to the bottom of the bed, so that would have to be figured out.
then theres the wheel wells- youre going to need some sort of fender around the wheels. if tires are exposed outside of the wheel wells/fenders, it can lead to a ticket in some states.
plus, if youre in a state that gets snow and uses salt, you can have a real fun time getting the bed off of the frame.

you may want to rethink your plan and build something in/on the bed
