Where to buy isuzu npr?

Hey guys,
Im trying to buy an isuzu NPR truck. Most of the ones i find are box trucks. I will need a dump 12-14' dump bed on it eventually. Where is a good place to buy it? I have heard of truckpaper.com
and how expensive is it to put a high side dump on it?
Thanks!

Craigslist, eBay, truckpaper, commercialtrucktrader, ironplanet.

Dump bed can cost anywhere from $5,000-$15,000 depending on options, steel/aluminum/stainless, hoist size, PTO or electric over hydraulic, etc. Call around to local truck up-fitters and they'll be happy to quote you a price.

If you're looking for a "Deal", and have cash on hand then you might do well to be on the lookout daily for a cab & chassis, as well as a bed/hoist. Sometimes you can find a c&c on ebay that goes cheap. Search only No Reserve auctions. Same for a dump. I saw one a couple weeks ago that probably would work on a pretty short wheelbase truck, was about a grand with hoist.

You will find more box trucks than anything. I bought one with a box and sold the box off of it and had it upfited. I was quoted 8k for a dump upfit but decided to go with side dump and dovetail flat bed. Cost us 13k with the tool boxes under it and rail lengthen. With out the rail lengthen and tool boxes your looking at about 10. Our new promaster with a side dump and 12 dovetail is costing us 9400 to build.

the 2011 chasis with 11k is in NYC.

Is it safe to buy a used truck from truckpaper or commercial truck trader and have it shipped without seeing it? Anyone have that experience?
thanks
