I live in a rural part of VA and our county has a soil and water conservation office that provides guidance on proper construction of gravel roads and driveways (in-person advice as well as publications). You may want to see if you have something like that locally, as they'll know what works in your area with soil types, rainfall amounts, etc.

As for spreading off the truck, I've only ever had it done via the tailgate method and I've always been impressed at how perfectly smooth and even they get it. We did a long looping driveway in the woods for a client and every load was about perfectly spread, we didn't need a lot of machine work except for dealing with the sides.
