    After spending half the winter with a T-shirt on and spreader in the back of 2500HD (short bed) I need a way to get a 1.5yd salt dogg in & out for next year. I only want it in when I'm using it and have no overhead options for hoists ect. Relying on other people stinks and I was thinking the reach and height are both there, or so it seems. Thoughts?

    I think a few guys use those. As long as it goes up high enough it will be fine. Weight isn't the issue.

    It might work if you rig it just right with a short chain under the hold down pins to get your height.Not the most practical way but with some ingenuity,I can see it happening.

    Get 3 other guys and pull it out. Or make a platform for it to sit on that is bed level, back up to it and push it out. If you are real lazy get a cheap little winch and hook it to the salt platform and pull it out of the bed that way.
