Venco Dump Conversion Hoist or Dump Insert

My father in-lawn is a retiring after 40 years of landscape installation. He is selling all of his equipment including dump trucks with the business. He just bought a 2011 GMC 2500 and wants to either convert the bed to a dump or buy a dump insert so he can still do some small jobs and work around the house. A salesmen was showing us the conversion hoist made by Venco. It appears to have the issue of stability worked out from the conversions I have seen in the past. Anyway, it is around $2800 for the conversion and a dump insert is around the same. I like the look of standard bed without an insert but I am thinking the insert would be a better choice to save the truck. Does anyone have experience or an opinion for what he should do? Thanks in advance.
