    look at the frame......its not flat so its a pickup they put a dumper on... cab chassis have straight frames with no bends.

    So I assume that is a home made dump. Why would someone take on a project like that if they can't weld? Cool truck though.

    X2, frame is no where big enough. Most likely had a dually truck bed and they put that dump on later. I saw one similar to this last year on e-bay that had a 3-way dump, being a crew cab i figured it must have been used for hauling mexicans doing landscaping.

    Not to mention, the box is to far back. When you have a load, it could lift the front end.
    Plus, the box is way to big for the truck. You could potentially bend or crack the frame.

    My favorite part is how it is listed at 14,000 to 16,000 GVWR.

    Someone took their fifth wheel hauler and turned it into a dump truck when they got a new truck.

    I hope so. But I'd love to watch that thing get loaded with about 5 yards of stone....from a long distance away.

    First, that's not a five yard body. Second, nobody would try hauling 5 yards of stone on a 3500.
