    I hate to leave my spreader in my truck when there isn't any need for it. This is my stand I built to remove my salt dogg v-box spreader.

    When we take the 12 yard hopper out of the Ford L9000 I drive we set it on Jersey barriers. I'd think that Jersey barriers would work for a small hopper as well.

    I'm sure they would work great. They might be a tad overkill since 2 people can carry this hopper. At least I know my spreader would be safe if there was a runaway truck.

    Thanks. It been in use for a few years now but I pretty much use it for summer storage. I have this and another truck that are designated plow and salt trucks all winter so spreaders don't come out until spring.

    Do you worry about theft?

    Not really. I actually leave keys in trucks most of the time. But everything is kept inside
