Hello, This is my 1st post and I really need help. I have a 2000 f350 2x4 flatbed. I would like to remove this bed and purchase a 12' stake body dump bed or any dump bed for that fact that would work with my application. Where can I locate a website that builds these or sells them new or used? thanks!

Have you considered just buying a junked truck with a flatbed and transferring it?

I would think a truck body place could put a hoist on the truck and body that you have.

If you can afford it go with aluminum bed since you only have a F-350 a 12 foot steel deck is heavy. You can go with one of those cheap stamped steel ones they are lighter but not very strong.

By the time you get the hoist and bed mounted your looking at allot of weight.

You may want to look for a F-450 or F-550 with a dumping flatdeck and sell your current F-350 as it is.
