Were the floors painted or did they have antiskid on them ?

the metal floor of the bed is just painted. Or are you referring to the "floor Leveling Kit" ??

Ken,

I think Marco was asking if you meant the steel bed or this level load floor:

Craig replies: The level floor kit was a factory-made dealer option. The GM kit included the metal pieces and the instructions included dimensions for locally-sourced plywood to be purchased, cut, and installed by the dealer.

The Level bed in the pictured rampside is the actual factory made option. The brackets are factory made and fold up for storage and lock into position. The boards are replacement for the originals that I still have but are well used. I had a local Lumber yard that also makes Custom Cabinets cut replacement boards using the originals as templates. I then sanded and stained and varnished the new boards before installation. They are all held in place with chrome allen head bolts with chrome washers. It does away with the ramp function but provides a shelf for under bed storage of a breakdown tool bag and moving blankets to cover the bed when I haul stuff in the bed. Yes, I actually use this vehicle daily.

I believe the OP is asking about the bed floor.
Photos of Dainer's Rampside cargo bed.
After a bazillion hours of bed dent repair....I opted for the Satin Black color.

Next photo is my final detail.

Oak. I cut the slats 1/8 taller than the raised bed ridges. I did not want to drill holes, so the wood slats are glued in place with a thin bead of Goop adhesive. Works perfect. Trim tape is too thick.

My Rampy has all those dents in the floors like yours did. I can't imagine how I would repair those! Impressive work.
