    That is a good deal there. I am not just a fan of Truckcraft, I am also a client! Good Luck on the sale...

    These are really nice units! I bought one from a member on here 2 seasons ago. I love it. I have used central tailgate units before and this one is just as good. I have never had an issue with it besides getting the motors rebuilt, but when your dealing with a salter its bound to happen.

    Why are you getting rid of it?

    Ive been struggling with a salt dumping out of my Alluminuim bed....its a pain in the butt, ends up taking the opperator twice as long to do his route b/c the salt doesnt like drop down the dump unless its all the way up....but then your risking hitting overhead wires and everything elso.

    so we are just going to go with a v-box for this truck

    I had that problem, so we went and bought the plastic coated plywood for concrete forms.(not cheap) It does good plus it helps when you have to get some gravel or small rock to absorb the shock.
