View Full Version : Fs. Famous Dodge Dovetail!

My brother landed a job overseas; so, he's selling me his brand new Ram 1500 for an outstanding deal. I plan on dovetailing it... But, really plan on taking it to the next level. My old truck has to go.

Details- 130,000 miles. Runs like new. Looks awesome despite a couple of small scratches(really minor). Ceramic brakes all the way around. Custom Dovetail Flatbed set up to haul a 60" Ztr, 3 tier anti roll trimmer racks, 2 custom ebz 8000 racks, hs 80 hedge rack, 3 very nice under deck boxes for tools, airtanks, gas, etc., and trimmer spool rack. Custom 9 foot bifolding gate. One ton springs. 20" wheels. The tires have 10,000 miles on them(they have 50,000+ miles of service left). Custom 12,000 hitch. Killer sound system- 2 10's under the back seat. The truck is the Big Horn Edition- power everything. 16 mpg's loaded. This truck is the perfect rig for solo or 2 up operations. The gate system makes it PERFECT for fast food or high volume commercial accounts. Loaded, the truck can be parked in a single space. I've had ZERO problems with the Dodge. It's also good for motorcycle-atv-or whatever hauling. I've used it many times to haul a popup camper with a jetski and trailer in the back. I hate to part with it... But, round 2 with the new dodge is going to be awesome.

When the truck is definitely sold(deposit paid), I'll pull off the bed and paint it with automotive paint... as well as a good detail job. I'll also put a new light kit on the bed.

I'll post loaded pics in a day or so.

Price... $10,000 FIRM

If the buyer doesn't rock ebz 8000 blowers, I'll have a new set of custom racks rigged up for whatever blowers they use.

C'mon. You know you want it! Free shipping to Florida if sold before 10-31.
I'm also willing to remove the amp and subs. That would save 400. If you don't want me to paint the bed, I'll take off another 400. Also, If a deal is struck VERY SOON, I could slap my bike in the back and deliver to most locations below the Mason Dixon Line. All I would charge is one way gas costs.

You either meant beater or better. I would have said the same thing before I bought this truck. I am now a mopar man. 130,000ish miles without a hiccup. It runs awesome. I've had to do nothing to it but oil and tranny fluid changes.

Final price cut. 8200. The heater core had a small leak, I bypassed it. The new owner will have to fix. The bed looks decent enough, but could use some paint... It's really not bad though. At 8200, you worry about that;)! This is a very good deal for an excellent running and looking truck. I really need it gone. I don't have room for her in my driveway.

It's super slick.
It just doesn't hold enough....
I have a big 61" Predator Pro that is the same size as that Hustler but I have to carry a 21" Honda with me too. I have to have the 21 for some tight spots at about 1/2 my props.
It looks like that thing is maxed out with that Hustler.

If I didn't need the 21 with me so much it would be sold.

I can see that.
My Honda is the full commercial hydro. That thing weighs about 110lbs. Throwing that thing up on the Bobcat is not in the cards. Don't get me wrong, I bench over 400. I'm just all about making my mowing life easier not harder. Beside, I would probably miss the breathing room I have on my 14' trailer. I'm just sick and tired of pulling it.
Sorry dude

Coolness. It's really not lifting at all though. I just prop the front wheels of the push on the foot deck of the Hustler and lift the mower on from the handle. It's slick and easy.

Ha. WTF. the thread was a guy asking about buying a trailer... I posted that it was in the guy's best interest to buy new... being that he was in TN... and had access to affordable brand new trailers. I told him not to buy a junk used trailer. But, in no way was referring to what others posted on the thread. I hadn't even read them. For the record, trailers in TN seem to be cheaper, BRAND NEW than I've seen used advertised on ls. I was just trying to give him a heads up.

It may look that way... But it's not all the springs can handle. They hardly budge with the mower on(1600 lbs). With the spring pack thats on there, it's no problem having the mower on the back... and towing a 16 foot trailer loaded.

All dodges have a limited market. Bed or no bed. It's a shame because my experience with dodge has been trouble free. If it weren't for the fact that I had a brand new dodge dropped in my lap, I'd keep it. If you are considering modding your truck similarly, I say go for it! My route is quite big; so the gas savings alone have paid for the truck!

The problem is it is a limited market for the truck. The truck is worth what he is asking. He just has to find the right buyer. Should he lower the price? Maybe. But he is just like most of us...we want to wait to find the right buyer at the price. There are certain things you are willing to lose money on. A truck like this is not one of them. It is customized and that will be worth the price to someone. Patron...I am not trying to pick a fight with your or anything. I am just stating how I see it too. Also the quote "it it's the worst mistake you make in life you will look back and smile" is something we all need to remember. There is no use in being so afraid to make a mistake that we are man enough to fix it and move on. Wise words my friend.

Patron... I have lowered the price... And am offering the new buyer custom racks for their equipment. The price will not be lowered further. As for you talking about a mistake??? The truck has earned me hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This is LAWNSITE. The truck is a custom lawn truck. Insanity? This is the market to sell it... and it will sell or I will keep it for a rainy day. I'd appreciate replies only if you are interested in the truck. You sir are a ******.

That is when it was first installed. I made it easy to maintain... But, it still has a lot of color- Burning bush, andorra juniper that is popping purple right now, hinoki cypress, sizzling pink loripetalum, oak leaf hydrangea, knockout roses, jap maples, camelia, and about 30 azalea of different variety. My landscape is nice... and almost 0 maintenance. My house serves me and my family very well. I recently updated my floors with natural hardwood... and did my kitchen with corian and nice tilework. My house is junky by no means... and it's something my family can and does afford easily. There is no shame in that. Get off your high horse.

I have to admit that this truck ad seems to be the first thing I see whenever I check out the classifieds, but for god's sake dont bash the asking price! Also, get off the guys ass about his house that he has worked hard for! The lanscape looks great and so does the house!

Ah. I'm actually out of the LCO. I did have materials in place to do the new dodge; but, ended up doing it for an f350. I've tried to dig up pics... to no avail. It came out pretty damn nice though. Improvements were bushings between the frame and bed, bushings on the gate(really quieted the whole set up), 2 sealed boxes, 2 "open" boxes skinned with expanded, 16g plate under the expanded on the bed deck. It was a fun, easy project that I'd challenge any semi handi welder to do.

It was sad to let my business go. Years of hard work, sweat equity, and pride were put on the shelf. But, in this messed up economy, I think it best to take care of my family with a more assured salary. I'm off to eod(explosives ordnance disposal) school in Colorado directly after the new year! I'm excited about the career change; but, I'll always miss the freedom and personal directive that owning my lco brought.

The boxes... etc, you would want as it's not much more labor and materials to go ahead and do those. Racked for your specific models, rigged, nice lights, nice paint, headache rack, tight... ballpark of 3. You sound like you may just want a generic flatbed, that can be had for a bit less money I'm sure... But, my design is geared for lco's... will be lighter(much lighter) than a conventional flatbed... and will be ergonomically awesome for all mower haulers!

I really wouldn't want the boxes underneath, I would just mount a sealed truck box underneath after the fact. The price for the actual bed is a good price, but you're so far away!!

On my 350 project, I made 2 completely sealed boxes with sheet metal and a brake... came out nice and way cheaper than any prefab box. It actually fit the bed too... so was definitely not an afterthought. Very nice. The 2 expanded doored boxes have their place too. They are excellent for gas cans(vented) and stuff that gets really grassy. What make of truck are you thinking about?

Hey Accu-cut, I must have missed something as I thought someone else was doing your fabricating. Do your capabilities include welding aluminum?

I am a hobbyest welder, brad, the true fabricator, is a master welder. He and I worked on the dodge, I completed the f350 project on my own. I was simply trying to pitch his skills as that's his bread and butter. I was a lco... and was not trying to fill up my plate too much.

I do have the capability to weld aluminum... but, with the design of the bed, it would only save a couple to few hundred pounds. The expense of materials would more than double... I'd also worry about durability with constant stress load on aluminum. Good ole American steel is best!

Glad you finally sold the truck. Found this entertaining thread digging on Dove Tail conversions...so forgive me if it seems I'm trying to hi-jack this one. I liked Ryan's Dove Tail version the best with the side compartments, hitch etc. Looked sharper, tidier, and more squared away.

How much of weight savings is there using aluminum vs. steel? Or is it even feasible to make an aluminum Dove Tail and keep the cost reasonable? Extruded aluminum will be stronger but requires tooling etc.

I'm currently trying to track down Co.'s that can make one of these in aluminum. The picture in my SIG is an Australian design that is common down under. I'm calling them for pricing this Monday. http://www.uteltd.com/

Any Input in my Aluminum Flat Bed Dove Tail quest much appreciated. :waving:

An Aluminum bed would spare quite a few hundred pounds... But, the cost is exponential. I started compiling aluminum for a flatbed on my new dodge; but quickly decided that aluminum is not worth it. Cost+labor associated with working aluminum is why 99 percent of commercial flatbeds are made of steel. Properly designed, a strong, lightweight steel bed is easily attainable. Design it yourself and get someone that is handy with a welder to build it. Someone that is knowledgeable about hinge design and locking mechanisms is a big plus... Most fabricators are though. ie making the locks out of sqare bar and square tube, etc. The deck surface is your best place to save mucho weight. expanded steel as decking alone-with plate over the wheels-is probably 500 lbs lighter than your average 7 guage plate. It leaves your rear drivetrain exposed to rain though. No issues BUT... you know what I mean. I made a bed with 16 guage skin topped with expanded over the top. That came out pretty awesome... and with the expanded tacked to the plate, it felt very, very sturdy. Just make sure to have a place for everything... and ALL nuances planned out. Don't save anything for later... Do it right the first time.

Thanks for the input ...really not suprised about the cost. I'm leaning toward the UTE bed it's pictured just above in the thread. Weight is only # 250 about 100 pounds less than the factory bed. Cost with light kit would be under $2300. Plus I was thinking of going for a Tail Gater folding steel ramp and attach it to the back of this UTE bed. That ramp alone is $850 or so. I'm still looking at other ramp options. Heaviest piece of equipment I'd ever load would be a Lawn Solutions stander at 1200 pounds.

All options are on the table. I really don't want a bed conversion that weighs much more than the factory bed.

That renovator is going to have a small footprint with a lot of weight. The ramps had better be ultra sturdy... And that kind of bed without a dovetail is going to be HIGH. Don't forget flatbeds sit higher than conventional beds because of lack of fenderwells. The ramp(if made of steel) will most likely be heavier than your aluminum bed... It's going to have to be LONG too without a dovetail... In the 12 foot range.

You may as well ditch the idea of your new bed being lighter than the factory bed... as it is going to have to carry more weight than the standard bed is designed to carry on a day to day basis.

2300 with gate(850). You can do a lot custom for that much... a lot. Find a worthwhile fabricator and you'll save money... and have a bed fitted with toolboxes, headache rack, etc.
