Anybody have a live floor installed on their truck?

I am running an Isuzu truck with an end dump bed now. I want the ability to not drop the trailer each time I want to dump the grass. I could go with a side dump, but thought it might cost less for a live floor installed.

Any links or pics would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

A live floor or moving floor would be the ulitimate idea. I've often thought about this idea instead of a side dump box. Sorry I can't help you with the cost of putting something together like this but looking forward to reading the different ideas. I think its a very simple idea but probably expensive to put together. All the best on your research.

I never found anything and now I am soon to be selling the business. There was something called the Dump 'n Go, but it was a something pre-fabricated and installed on an existing bed. It also had a lift for dumping grass into the bin with the live bed. Years ago it sold for $10K...more than I wanted to spend.
