Truck with dump box

We've more than double our clientele this year and need to buy a new truck very badly. I would like to buy a dually with a big dump box on the back or something like that. But I am having a very diffucult time finding one.

Should I buy a flatbed and then an afermarket box like the Monroe Versa Line? I really don't know how to go about finding a truck like this, Craigslist doesn't have much to offer.

Honestly I just need a truck with a big box in the back, dump or no dump I need to know how I should be going about finding something like this.

Any help will be much appreciated!

I know you said you looked on craigslist, but I would continue on there and searcgh around, also you may try ebay I've bought a few trucks off there with good luck. Also I'm not sure if your interested but I have a 1999 silverado 3500 for sale. It has a 12 foot diamond plate flat bed on it. If you want to buy a dump I can take the flatbed off and sell you the cab and chassis, we just don't use the truck enough to keep it, only has 126k on it.

yeah I just found one in Omaha I'm going to go take a look at actually. I haven't checked ebay because it seems like ebay is not very local, but it can't hurt to look I suppose!

Chicago is quite a ways a way to get a truck. I would probably lose a lot of money driving between there and Lincoln. How much are you asking for the truck though?

Get a dump you won't regret it. I just got a dump last month and don't know how I went so long with out it. The only thing with buying a used dump is you need to take your time looking cus there is alot of junk out there. Good luck with the search.
