Here are a couple of pics. This is a standard wheel base dodge. We can fit one 60" chopper, 36" walk-behind, and a push mower on the bed. It has a 9' deck and 4' dovetail.

Thanks for the pics. Very nice setup with both trucks. I personally like the idea of a dually truck with a landscape bed on it.

The only thing I'm thinking is that it would probably not be a good idea to pull a trailer, if I decided that there was a need to pull the trailer, from the back of a landscape bed. Being that it would be so far behind the axle and very far away from the frame of the truck I would think that the bed would need to be strengthened quite a bit to do this? Any comments?

I just depends on what you are hauling. I don't think pulling a 7000 pound bobcat would be a good idea, but I pulled my ASV on a trailer behind it w/ no problems. That was about 5000-5500 pounds including the trailer.

I have a flat bed on a 4500HI, dumpping the bed and getting a 17' box in about 3 weeks!
I will still keep the hitch to pull my 7 ton dump trailer.
