Looking at installing an aluminum landscape body on a new truck. I have always had steel ones and am steering towards aluminum to eliminate repainting. Could any one let me know how the durability of the two compair.

Whats the truck? Whats the use? Big benefit is saving weight.

I'd stick with steel on the bulkhead and the sides, its stronger. Then do Aluminum tailgate or ramp with steel supports.

Uber sexy stainless steel, also expensive as hell.
