is there another option similar to the super lawn trucks hydraulic design? I think the dovetail on the back of a box truck looks bad.

Looks like a good deal to me, what do you guys think? Anyone know anything about this place?
Can someone give me some input on the GMC for 11K in the second link, is this a good deal?

Hey I just bought myself a isuzu with a 15' box on has the hydro lift on it...I don't think I can fab it up to get my 60zt up ...I talked to a local fab guy and he said it would cost about 4k to have a dovetail built on it...sounds a but high

Do a internet search for companies that make Landscape beds..I know one is Wil-Row.Most also sale just dovetails. You can get a whole open landscape bed for around $5,000.
