    hey all, looking to upfit one of my shortbed trucks, preferably my dodge with an aluminum flatbed. i thought about fabricating a steel one, but the look of the aluminum with the stainless sander and plow ill be running next season will look better. i just dont know where to start, id like the best bang for the buck if possible, but i also want something thats good quality. ive seen moritz beds and those look nice, but id like to find a dealer around, im in CT but ill travel new england if the deal is good enough. thanks in advance. if it helps any, im looking for one with a gate option, stake pockets, and LED lighting. also, how do these hold up to weight in them, a buddy says his aluminum trailer continually gets stress cracks?

    Are you going to make it dump. The next bed I build if I ever do might be aluminum. Still weighing the pros and cons.
