    As it states. Its at the bottom of this page:

    http://tafcoequip.com/Default.asp?page=698

    2 years old and in nice shape. Rear tail light section under the gate is a little banged up but bed itself is very nice. Over $4k new...........half price used. Selling for $2k.

    BRAND NEW hoist/scissor assy available. Planned to convert truck to dump but never did.

    I will consider partial trade for a 94-02 Dodge Ram bed, as that's what this bed is currently on. Must be nice.

    I understand this is somewhat of a specialty item and not for everybody, so please understand why it's priced at what it is. It may not be your style, but using it is great. This ad is a feeler for now, I can provide actual pics to serious potential buyers. Price is firm b/c we are still debating running it for another season, possibly as a dump. I was going to price higher and negotiate, but there's no sense in that I suppose. The new hoist is for this bed and dealer cost was over $2k, so bear that in mind as well.

    Thanks.

    Can a salter be attached easily? Like on a mason dump?

    Not that I know of, but I can look into it. We actually didn't salt with it last year, aside from carrying bagged salt for the walk behinds. If we run it this year it's going to get a stainless v-box.

    Inface I have a couple of V boxes for sale as well. A Snowex 8k and a Snow Way 8' elec conveyor type, mild steel.

    Road trip!!!

    Really though, this is an ideal work bed. We just don't use it to its full potential, and its on a truck that literally sits till winter. It was installed on a Dodge Cummins for a customer and used for a year, then my partner ended up buying the truck last year. So I suppose it really only has one season of use.

    I grabbed a couple pics of the actual bed here. On the Dodge it's mounted on 4" c channel, so depending how you mount and what you desire it could sit a bit lower on the frame:

    I honestly don't know, and I didn't do it. I'll look close and see what the reason was.

    I'm sure everyone has asked but is there any way to ship this item. SWEET bed. Free bump in any case.
