Correct. Front and rear walls are load bearing. I found a couple of tables and just briefly looking, it sounds like either 2 2x10's or 2x12's. The 2x12's should be more than enough.

Thank you so much. This is all great advice. I do like the idea of giving one out the door price like that. What about for a trade in? Is it better to come up with a price on the truck first and...

Ok, I'll take it apart tomorrow and reassemble. What exactly is Teflon pipe dope? Is there a particular brand of it or will it just say Teflon pipe dope on it? Would you put tape first then dope?
