    Hi Folks,
    I need to sand my dirt road, about 4 miles total in North Idaho. My question is: I've got a short box F-250, and I see that I need to get a short V-box & not an 8 footer. How far will the material I'm spreading go at a 14 foot width? I want to spread enough to make the road hopefully not too slick.
    Thanks in advance-Chris
