Looks like you spread the gravel real evenly.

Been quite busy here weather is like its May and work is starting too roll in fast! Figure I would share this I filled my tractor tires to add more weight. I did have windshield washer fluid that I tired back in fall but failed and screwed it up so I had to buy a little attachment and I filled them with a gallon of anitfreeze each then water

Why did you decide on that instead of rim guard or foam? I'm trying to decide what to add in mine.

I decided on this because I am mainly doing it for more weight and it was the least expensive option plus if I feel the need I can take it out or put it back in

Dump is in landscape mode! Put on the new side boards I made over the winter, they turned out great I think! Also I mount the wheel barrows on the cab protector which is why I got this style of dump bed. Not sure about other areas but alot of landscapers do that around here.

Looks sweet all loaded up and those boards look really good, and I love the wheel barrows mounted up on the cab protector!
