    I have a used EZ Dumper insert. I picked it up because the price seemed right. With the weather and other projects I have on my plate I dont know how long it will be before I can get to dealing with it. It is well used but appears to be solid and complete. It even includes the brackets for mounting. It also has a mesh head board. It looks like it needs 2 patches welded in, maybe 3"X3" each. One is on the bottom and one on the rub rail. Also looks like the tailgate can use having the "panes" replaced or reinforced. If you werent concerned with perfection I would say it can also be easily used just the way it is. It also has extenders welded on for raising the side boards a foot. The total inside is rhino lined. If I cant get $1000 for it I will keep it and spend my free time with a sander and a can of rustoleum. Just figured I would put the feelers out there before I unload it from the truck. I will try to get some pics but there isnt a lot to show with it still on the truck and not wired in.

    Sorry I didnt mention it is an 8 ft insert. I have it sitting on a Ford and it fits like a glove but I know they are made to be universal and will fit any make with an 8 ft box. Ill take some pictures but they wont show much since its still on the truck. You can see what it looks like by going to the EZ Dumper web site. Like I said it is far from being in new condition but basically sound. I have not raised it but was told it works.

    The frame of the gate is fine. Its just the sheet metal "panes" that should be patched or replaced.

    Thats the best picture I can get of the bottom. You can see the one area I can find that might need patching. It is on the right rear. For scale, the yellow spot in the center of it is a frozen cigarette butt.

    The rail on the drivers side appears solid.

    Last picture. I doesnt show much but its all I have. In the first picture you can see the other hole. It is about 2" square just behind the tie down. If you have questions feel free to PM me. I also want to be clear that though I was told that it works, I have NOT seen in raised. The motor does not look very rusted though I realize that doesnt mean anything. At this price it would be sold as is.

    can you measure the length and width. and maybe get me a close up so i can see the details of the holes?

    in the last pic....is that sitting all the way down in the bed? the rails shouldnt sit up that high every one i've seen is flush with the bed rails

    That is actually sitting on a pallet in the truck. It is about 3-4 inches higher than it would be installed. It was loaded with a bobcat ant it bade it easier to load. Ill get better pictures of the 2 holes.
