Sorry thought I listed the name of the company, their called future line. I've been looking for something like this for a while now. The one thing I wish it could do is dump in three directions like the Truckcraft metro series then it would hands down be perfect. I'm going to contact them and see if they'll be possibly doing a multi direction one

Spoke with the company, those srw dump body's aren't too expensive around 5k, considering the refund on a box delete if your going new of around a thousand plus cost of an insert I'd say it's worth it. Like you said don't have to worry about it as much compared to regular pick-up bed its heavier duty than sheet metal plus the sides fold down!

I'd think aluminum would be the way to go especially on a srw. They don't make a multi-direction dump that dumps three directions for srw that looks like the one in the picture, wasn't to happy about that I guess it's a rare option for the srw dumps apparently. They only build them for the dually's unfortunately. They said because the srw don't have straight frames like the dually's it's harder to have the hoists go three ways.

I was kind of bummed about that as the metro style on the truck craft just looks kind of cheesy to me the way the sides and everything look compared to the future line design, but I gotta give it to truck craft for having the only 3 way srw dump be awesome in tight areas with a trailer to be able to dump like that especially without even unhooking a trailer.

Gonna see if you can by the hoist from truck craft separately then fab it for a different body lol doubt it. If any of you guys find another SRW body that can go three ways and looks like that one PLEASE let me kno!

I ordered a flatbed and a 5 ton hoist (smallest available). Its being built now. Having everything installed. After that I'll basically be making it into a mason dump. Planning on making 12" fold down sides and a swing gate or buying the parts from a dump trailer company, probably Cam superline.
