    I have a 6' buyers ss v-box that is in great shape. I just dont have the 6' bed truck any more. Will I run into any issues using this salter in a 8' truck bed? Center of gravity issues? etc?

    I believe this will primarily be a back up truck. I would much rather have the extra capacity of the 8' box.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    dont see any major issues, does the truck have a plow? most of the weight well still be over the back axle

    The truck is a 3/4 ton and has a plow. I just dont want to learn durring the weather. Thanks for the reply. Turns out a buddy of mine had the same v box in an 8' truck bed and didnt have any issues.
