I say do it yourself, It's a great beginner project. Besides the $$ savings you'll have bragging rights when others ask about it. I don't know where you are located but if you can't barrow tools most can be rented now days at your local material supply place. As far as the joint goes. If you ar planning to leave it in the truck you can always just use some store bought angle brackets and screws to attach the center braces. Good luck with the project. Be sure to post pictures when you have it done.
BTW if you run into a snag along the way we are always here to lend some advise to talk you thru it.
