Default Aluminum/Steel flat bed Bodies??

I have an '02 2500 ext cab SRW and I am looking to put on an aluminum or steel flat bed body on with possibly a hoist underneath. I do a lot of various work on the side which this would be more convenient for me. Does anybody know of a good fabricator or shop within a 100 or so miles of Torrington, CT That I could talk to about what I am looking for?

Thanks for your time guys

JD

Why not just put a pre-made body on it? A place like this http://www.whroseinc.com/ should be able to hook you up. If not, here is a fabricator that my employer uses on a regular basis. http://www.arniowelding.com/

Myself i would go with the aluminum bottom, for the lighter weight & still retain the durability
The hoist ram(s) would also work easier

get one built something like these
