    hey all, if this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it. however, im debating on putting a flatbed on my shortbed SRW F350, im looking at the moritz beds, and possibly a CM flatbed, or a cadet. the moritz beds look nice, but I cant find a dealer around me. if theres one in new England as far as south maine, someone please let me know. I would just like some opinions on these flatbeds, Im also planning on making it a dump bed. thanks.

    CM and Bradford Built are great beds, Hillsboro also makes a nice bed.

    I don't mean to get off the subject or hijack, but how long does the paint or powder coat last on those flatbeds before they need a touch up?

    Ha that's true, I'm sure they take a hit better then the factory bed.

    Much much better. Only problem is the insurance doesn't know how to deal with it and repair facilities are far and few between.

    Got $1775. If I wanted to take it any further would of needed a lawyer and after his fees I would be right around $1775. :dizzy:
