    how much sq ft do you need to treat. figure that out and we will e better to elp you. You can either get a small 10 cu ft tailgate spreader or a 2 yd v box salter to put in the bed.I have a 2500 hd and I can put 2.5 yards of salt in the back.

    Pretty much any spreader will fit. Guess the question is, how much do you have to do with the spreader? Might as well be sent in the right direction instead of getting something to big or to small.

    long bed or short bed?

    My boss uses snow-ex..and he likes them (counter to what is said on here about them)

    hes got a vpro6000 in one chevy2500 and two sp7550's in other chevys and swears by them over his old steel gas units.
