1 ton dump

Hey guys got a question for some of you that may have experience in this. I'm looking at getting my first dump going for this year. I am looking for a pretty specific truck due to cash constraints as well as engine reliability.

I'm looking at getting a 7.3 powerstroke 4wd reg cab with lower miles, if it already has a dump on it great.

I found one with a flat bed dump. Does anybody run this style rather than a contractor/landscape bed. I know I can weld sides, but is it worth it. If anybody has run both styles I'd love to see some pictures or feedback on whether or none a flatbed with some built sides worked out alright.
