    Looks good. I was thinking of a set up like that since I have a 6' spreader and I get a lot of overspill while getting loaded up with a bucket loader. I've seen a couple of setups like that on some of the local town trucks. Are the sides welded directly to the hopper or is it removable at all?

    must be a pain in the butt to get that thing off now.... lol

    we use a skid and chain to lift sanders off, with those extensions might make it hard + might do damage to them. unless they do it with some other method.
