Jeff, let me look later today but I know for sure what I have is pieces. That bulkhead piece is built as part of the tub and tack welded to it. You might have to custom fab something.

The best solution I have seen is to use some bent (or even flat) aluminum or wood and fabricate one. You can put rubber seals on the sides and make it removable. The NAS tub is significantly different enough and the bar there is sufficiently in the way that putting a ROW one on is not possible without big mods.

I was thinking of making my own and use some factory capping to tie it all in.I'm going to remove most of the NAS cage except for the bar under the tub and the supports for the rear of the cage

Jeff, I have the ROW cappings and the bent plate that runs between the cappings. Like Ron said you would need to fab some of this to make it work. If you would like to discuss call me as I have not built one but removed one. I will shoot you my number.

The cappings and that piece I will let go for $50 plus shipping if you are interested.

I made one for my 97 NAS ST, not too hard if you have some basic skills. If you have access to a sheet metal brake you could just use a flat sheet of alum and bend the top and bottom at 90, the top rivets to the center capping and bottom would rivet to the floor. If you do not have access to the brake you rivet some angle to the top and bottom of a flat sheet the rivet to the capping and the floor.

Ohh and make a template out of cardboard or thin wood first and make sure it fits

FWIW the stock bulkhead on my 1984 90" is held in place with pop rivets not spot welds.

I made the rear bulkhead for the 110 double cab that I built. I used 1/4 plate aluminum and "L" channel for the securing structure. I had a shop bend some SS plate into a channel for the top piece similar to a stock ROW truck. As posted above a stock ROW truck bulkhead is tack welded in and has some good bends that make it strong. I am sure a good fabricator could make one but it would take some time. The piece I made is straight giving a little more room behind the seats.

So now that I have everything out of the way it seems that it would be easy to bend up a piece as a bulkhead.Now I think I need the "Y" capping but am not sure about the existing capping.Does the little 6" piece come off or is it all one piece?
