Do you have one of these and if so can it be fitted with a leaf box? It looks like it would be hard for a box to be mounted on top without useing the high side option from them. I guess I'm worried about the wooden box on top of the plastic sides would vibration cause it to crack?

$6 grand or so for a new one plus the headboard and tarp.
They weigh in @ 420lbs! 2 bolts and a few easy electrical connections and your up and running. Installation on my truck was completed start to finish with myself and 1 other guy with a forklift in under 1 1/2 hours.

How much? If I was to buy a dumper, It would be Aluminum.

Hi-Sides Option

Well, the hi-sides option is meant to be used to build the box. It has extruded PVC square tubing under all three sides of the lip of dump-pro, and has a hardware package that allows the box to "float", due to expansion and contraction. Will not crack the dump body. You supply the wood.

I have a Bri-mar insert. I haven't had any problems at all. I built a leaf box on mine and it works great.
