10 yard? I think there's some confusion here. That size box wouldn't even fit in your truck.

Might want to re-think those numbers... a "yard" of bulk salt is around 2000#

I'm getting a 1400# (empty weight) Swenson Spreader for my F550 (a 19,000# truck) and it only holds 3.5 yards of salt.

You must be mistaken for a 1 yard v box...and that's pushing it big time for a halfton..as in way over.

A 4 yard v-box is rated for +19000GVW trucks...lol.

Anyways...LOOKING GOOD.
