Why only go 4' high on the sides?? Your limiting the amount of debris you can haul with that short of a box. I have a 8' dump insert and I used 6' high sides for my leaf box. 2x4's are on the outside. I originally started with barn doors on the back but relized very quickly that it was tough to open when the box was full and changed it to having a solid back door with the hinges on top. Door automatically opens when the bed is tilted. I used screws to hold the 2x4's in the post. The box is pretty heavy when fully assembled so I honestly wouldn't worry about it ever falling off.
