    hey guys i go though about 1.5-2 tons of salt every time i go out. Right now im useing a little salt dog tailgate spreader that holds 300lbs "something like that". I want to get a vbox spreader but the problem is i only have a half ton truck. are there any vbox spreaders i could put in my truck?

    you could put in anything that will fit a 2500,3500 just can't fill it up . something small (if it's a short bed) might be like a snow-ex 6000 or 7550, even the 8500 would fit a short bed but for the cost vs how little weight you can carry and how little salt you use it wouldn't be the best value .imo ...
