1 Ton pickup (duellie) thoughts

Need to buy a truck to yank a 12,000# GVW dump trailer around.

Highest truck on the list is a 1996 Dodge 3500 4wd pickup. I think I can buy it for a very fair price, however I just can't get over the pickup part. It seems like I'm going to be buying a heck of of a lot more truck then I need, but without any of the benefits of the larger truck (namely dump bed).

I guess I'm just wondering what others views on 1 ton pickups are?

Anybody know anything about putting a dump bed on a 1 ton pickup chassis?
