    Just got my new/used dump truck today! C4500, DMax, with a New 11 foot 2 way dump bed. Its only 2wd but oh well. I have never seen one of these beds in person before, Its pretty cool. It dumps like a regular dump truck but then dumps also on the drivers side. Not sure what I will use that for but its cool either way! I will post more pics tomorrow!:D:nod::drinkup:

    Yep! Thats the game plan plow and salt. Thinking about running the SP2400 again and im thinking 9.5V plow. Not sure which one to go with. It will either be Western or Snow Dogg.

    Mike I like the truck. Should work well even 2wd. I have a 6500 with 10' Boss, no problems.

    The salter is a tailgate model.

    Oh that should work pretty good. I know a guy with a GMC 5500 with a tailgate spreader and it works pretty good. I think he puts about 5 or 6 yards on but, I'm not sure.

    Check out the new sp2200 under-tailgate spreader. That way you can still use the tailgate to dump remaining salt out. I just bought one for my F550 and its made sweet! Jim at Equipment Specialists smoked every deal I found and that was even shipped from Virginia. Good luck sweet set-up!

    $22,000 out the door. Not the best deal but it was the best deal I could find that was in that good of shape local with a brand new bed.

    Ya! That side dump option is crazy! I had every one in town talking about it today. I couldnt tell you how many time I had to show how it works. I didnt get anything done today people just kept on stopping by. Its pretty crazy!
