Yeah, I remember when it was legal to ride in the bed of a truck with a shell or a camper, as long as there was a means of communicating between those in front and those in the back.
Yet, it was legal to ride in the back of an open pickup with a full rear non- sliding window.
One has to securely Mount a Rear Facing bench seat w/ the proper restraints, i.e. 2-point or 3-point seatbelts.

Im not from around wherever yall are from around but up here in Snohomish County, WA its legal to ride in the bed with or without a canopy as long as the cab of the truck is full. You dont need belts or seats or anything, perks of the job when you live in a farming community.
I doubt that helps you but i felt it nescesary to chime in anyways
