Dump insert might look a little funky.. they said it would have to sit back at least a foot to clear my bumper and hitch... It would also put me over CDL with the liquid sprayer in there...in addition to the added (unnecessary) weight under the sprayer in the winter. Actually still debating on it.

Pull the insert out in the winter, should be a couple of wiring connectors and 6-8 bolts. As high as that truck sits it should be easy. This would be cheaper and easier in the ling run with no major mods to the frame or the bed.

Only Problem with that is.... We do cleanups until its sooo bad that we cant do any more due to accumulated snow. 2 Years ago we did cleanups one night and the next morning we were plowing 6" of snow. Truly Sucks. In that event we would have to come back to the shop , first take off the box then take out the insert. Then finally putting the sprayer in. That is if we put a insert in the 4500.

We're still weighing our options!

Due to weight in the winter. As i stated above i wouldnt want a 1000 gallon tank sitting ontop of a dump insert...Plus the added 650# takes away the amount of material i can carry legally and stay under CDL

But it doesn't matter what you weight.

Yes it does....

I personally do not want 10,000 pounds (Tanks filled weight) sitting on a 650 pound Dump insert for 3 months. Thats just my logic. Right now we can put 850 gallons in the tank and still be under CDL (26,001)

With a insert we would "Technically" only be legally allowed to haul 785 gallons. I do not have a CDL as of right now So i have to abide by those rules.
Feel free to PM me for more info.
