'46 3/4 ton stakebed wooden frame #1271406

I'm not sure if this is the correct section to ask this question but here goes. I'm restoring a '46 3/4 ton stakebed. The wood between the bed and frame is pretty bad. I was wondering if there is any particular wood I should use when rebuilding it. I was thinking pressure treated but that looks kind of funky. Since the wood is visible I was thinking a nice hardwood, but I'm not sure how it will hold up to the wear it will get. Any ideas?

thanks,
Joe

I would use white oak. It's strong and will hold up well in the weather.

Yep, white oak or post oak. There are some oaks that are a definite no so I'd be careful.
