Hey guys, I don't know if I explained my situation in another thread so here is a little background. Last week we purchased a 2003 F-550 dump with 8k miles on it. The truck was a repo and has been doing odd jobs on the dealers lot for a couple years.

Anywho, the truck has buttons going across the front of the dump and down the sides, that seem to be for a cover or tarp. One didn't come with the truck, so I was wondering if there was a place that sells these or makes custom for customers.


Thanks a lot.

The best type of tarp is one that swings over the box on a arm. I don't know why they would have snaps on a dump box ?

Well that's what I thought too, but since it had the snaps, I was wondering if there was a place to buy the tarp.

Do you know of any companies that sells the one you're referring too?

Check with the manufacture of the box they might have one designed for that box.

There are also tarps without the arms but they have a roller set up on the cab guard that you roll the tarp up on and has a crank handle on the driver side of the truck.
