Ez dump sideboards

I just recently picked up a dump insert for my pick up and I need to pick up sideboards for it. I was wondering what dimensions everyone uses for the wood, I was thinking 2x6's? Not sure

depends really are you going to be using it for mostly mowing or installs (mulch,brush,etc.) i have (2) 2x6s on mine and they work well for moving and the mulch i put in it around 2-4 yrds but if you plan on doing a lot mowing (ie large baggers and leaves) then go with the larger sides. Just remember just because it fits doesnt mean that the vehicle maybe able to handle it.

No problem the other nice thing about the 2x6s is I have a 2500hd Chevy with no tow mirrors ),:. So I have to move my passenger side mirror so I can see the other lane on freeways.
