im toying around with doing this for the winter months while my truck in storage, what I was thinking was making one out of plywood and sealing t from moisture then covring the top with fiberglass and having it painted to match the body color I want it to be flush with the bedsides then make some sort of a hinge with gas shocks? does this sound crazy? or does anyone ahve any other ideas?

Makes sense to me. Put rubber weather strip around where it sits on the bed lip and it may even be water tight. Latches around perimeter where it has tie down loops and youre set

By the time you do all that, and brace it to keep it from sagging, you probably could have a sheet of aluminum sheared for the same money...
