I really like the idea of not having to pull a trailer but thats alot of weight hanging on the back end of a pickup. we run salt spreaders that hang on the reciever hitch and I can tell you sometimes my one ton feels light on the front end if the salt spreader is loaded and no plow is on the frotn to counter the weight. I couldn't imagine a z spray hanging that far off the back of the truck, the front end of the truck has to be light. i think i would rather pull a trailer and have the ability to haul more water, fert. to boot. Safety first!

Have to agree with you on this I think I will just stay with the trailer, seems a little scary to me.

I don't think you can salt with a box truck. I think the purpose here is dual use.
