Dump Bed Inserts OK ?

Would like any feedback on brands of Dump Bed inserts, and what your experience has been with them. Trying to save some money over a dump trailer. It would only be used 2X week.

Ez dumper. What type of material you plan on using it for and what truck? I've used it in F250 gasser 4x4 for grass and mulch. Works wonders. Not sure of I'd load it with top soul or a bunch of stone

I love our Amerideck. You can lower them down to the ground and also switch bodies just like a hock lift system. It was a great addition for us.

I believe they cost about $4500 but don't hold me to that. It's been a while since I bought ours and we paid around $5K but I also had the installer spray my truck bed with Line-X. I also have a friend that is a distributor for them and he hooked me up a little. What ever it cost I would gladly do it again for they are worth their weight in gold!

i checked on the amerideck and was quoted around $1700 for the lift mechanism and under $2000 for additional decks. the enclosed box was high at around $5000.

I have an EZ-Dumper in my chevy and its a brute. I put everything in it... Mulch, loom, stone, grass, leaves. The stone was the only thing that made it ever squeeze when dumping, but 2 yards of 3/4 trap rock...
