Would you have welded uprights closer to perimeter of main frame to get skin to set more flush with the outside vs having the lip?
What’s your tire to bedside clearance like?
Did you redo tailgate latching system?

They do make a nice flat surface for things though. Nice to stand on, the camp stove fits will on it, I'm sure some other things too.
To me the round fenders look significantly better but the flat tops are just so practical. I have some wide flat tops on my trailer as well; they are handy for sure.

I wanted a bit of a lip at the frame so I wouldn't have changed it. But you could definitely build it more flush.
Tire clearance is about 3" between the tire and tub.
Yes, tailgate latches are new with the recent work.
