    i have a 2003 chevy silverado K3500 with a power and gravity down dump box. I was wondering what the cheapest option would be to run a tailgate spreader for bulk salt. I looked into plumbing for hyd, but its way to expensive. I was thinking of an eletric pump to run a hyd motor? i dont want a v-box, i want to be able to salt from the bed...any ideas???
