Building a leaf box

Hi, I am new to the website, I have learned a lot so far from it though. I have a question, I just purchased a 2000 F550 with a 10ft dump with barn doors on the back. I was curious how to go about building a leaf box for it. I will be running a tow behind leaf loader for it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Usually with 2x4's and plywood for starters...as you go along you will see what it needs to be functional. I didn't say pretty...I said functional. Mr. Home depot is your friend...go see him! Try a search on leaf boxes...
