There is nothing more annoying and nothing more inefficient than shoveling and raking things out of the back of a pick-up truck. Everyone has probably been there at one time or another, sweating and mumbling they wish they had a dump to do this work. Well, you have to check out TruckCraft. they are the manufacturers of just about any bed-type or accessory you can imagine.

Give them a look at www.truckcraft.com and see if they have what you need - I'm guessing they do!

can anybody help me find one in the long island area for about $4000? i need it asap!!!:help: :help:
i just started the business and paid for a years worth of advertising in a local paper. and am getting a large number of calls requeting an estimate. i sold my personal vehicle three days ago and had no calls prior to that. now i am getting calls at an unbeleivable rate but can do nothing about it due to no truck.

Keep your eye on ebay! I found quite a few trucks in that area and they have a 1991 F250 with a dump insert on the commercial truck; dump truck section of ebay motors! I am not sure were it is located but it might be worth it!
IMO a full size pickup would probably do for now depending on what kind of services your potential customers want.

Best of luck!
