    i have a dilemma some of you may have a creative answer for.
    i run a v box in my truck, but this year i am going to need room to haul a small snowblower and a push spreader for doing sidewalks. the vbox pretty much takes up my whole bed so outside of strapping everything on top of my vbox and having a 10 foot high truck, i'm out of ideas. any help?

    i think i am going to have to end up changing my setup for this truck and go with a tailgate spreader. (hopefully used) anyone looking for an 8 ft western vbox? possible trade for large tailgate spreader? when i get a chance to get down to my dad's shop and take pics i'll put it in the classified section on here if i haven't gotten rid of it yet.

    How about????

    How about welding up a tray that sets onto your bumper just over the discharge of your spreader to hold the blower and spreader.
    They have them that go into your hitch for cars are rated for 600lbs or so.A welder and some steel you could whip something up.
    I guess it depends on if you need a yard and a half of material with you or not.
    Just my two cents.
