Hey Red. Where did you get the picture of this M816?Another Option instead of making the bed removable, would be to copy the 5th wheel capability of the m819. Thinking that might be easier to accomplish. So basically take Zebedee's wheelbase stretch idea

Relocate the rear winch to just behind the cab and using rollers to guide the cable out past the crane/bed. Then installing a 5th wheel plate where the rear winch was, similar to the back of this m819.

Input is greatly appreciated as to which idea would be better to go with and why.
