Does anyone have the Rugby/Dejana Stakeless Landscaper Body?

I'm Considering buying a rugby/dejana stateless landscaper body on my new f450 dump. We do mainly small tree work and have never used rear barn doors. I am wondering if the sides are structurally solid enough to hold a full load of brush or logs without bowing outwards. I am assuming it will be fine, but I want to make sure it will work for many years.

I appreciate the help.

Here is a link to the body I am speaking about:

It's the best body on the market by far. You will have zero problems with a full load of topsoil in it ( if the truck could hold that) so a full load of chips and brush is no worries.
Just wait till you see the price on it though.

Yes it will be just fine if you remove those. They are not needed to hold the sides together.

My uncle has two and they seem to be doing better than his standard stake body truck. You will just have the little tailgate on the back?

We have two, an 8' on a f450 and a 12' on a 550. The have been absolutely great. The 550 has the sides extended up an additional 18". The trucks routinely get overloaded with large stones and logs
