Anyone seen the poly dump beds??? Dealer near me has had one on the lot for a while. Looks neat, they claim it has the same strength as a steel bed.

Never seen them before. Have seen poly liners for beds. It would be neat to check out a website with info about them though!

Can't seem to find any websites. The truck is at a local Chevy dealer, its on a 3500. The body is a 10ft dump bed, the bottom is a sheet of white ploy that is probably about 3/4 of an inch thick, sides look like they are linex'd but its poly as well. I am looking for a new dump and thought that it was kind of interesting.

I can't picture it in my head dumping 2-3 yards or dirt, or 4-5 yards of mulch, without flexing like a mofo.

It has a steel frame poly bottom and sides. Looks pretty sturdy, more support than my steel dump bed has. The entire steel frame has a linex material on it.

Your are talking about the rugged landscape body from ABC. I am shopping for a new truck and that is the body i am going with. I have an absolute obsession about my dump bed rusting and i am hopping this will be the answer. Another huge benefits of those bodies is that they are much lighter than a steel body. Like 900lbs!! That means you can carry more when loaded and less when empty.

yup its made by ABC, I imagine it is stronger than a rack body with a wooden floor.
