    Funny you say that, looking for one currently. Trying to decide on the size. This truck will be for larger lots, but still need to have a good amount of maneuverability in tight spots when driving down town.

    Put a 9ft on it anything smaller your outside dual will tag your windrow. Mac Eq in Loveland can hook you up for $5900 w/Smart Lock cylinders.

    did this start out as a pickup truck or was it a cab chassis? i am in the process of making my flatbed into a dump and was curious. if you have time could you get some pics of the hoist with the bed raised?

    It was a C&C truck. The dump bed has a harsh hoist on it. I dont recall the cost, but it was really easy to put on if you can weld. I can get more pictures later, trying to get ready for the snow.

    i see. that makes it easier you had 34" frame. mines a pickup frame its 38" i have a hoist on way with subframe its for a 34" cab chassis shouldnt be too difficult to make work. couldnt find anything for pickup trucks other than some junk at northern tool. thanks

    Nice . Hard to tell cause the picture is a little dark, but it looks as if you use the dump it would hit the hitch assembly. Or is there a cut out which I cannot see in the pic.

    The hitch is actually part of the bed. So, there is no dumping with a trailer on. The hitch is all braced and boxed under the back of the bed. Major Beef. wesport
