Yes the back of the bed is closed off. I just used flat sheetmetal not quite 1/8th thick and then welded angle on the top of that so I can bolt the top to that. It works great! Not to criticize your work but it looks like you welded the bed mounts to the frame...I would suggest making them removable because "You never know". Also I don't like welding ANYTHING to the frame if I don't absolutely have to. If you are like me and plan on keeping your jeep the rest of your life you will thank yourself, even if it is maybe 10 or 20 years later.
