    I have a 2001 Isuzu NPR dump truck / maintenance truck for sale. It has a 16 foot bed with 4 foot sides on it with a combo gate on the back that will swing to dump and fold to load equipment on the truck. It also has gates on each sides at different parts of the bed so that pallets of material can be loaded on to the bed of the truck. 147k miles, gas engine. New tires all the way around. $9,900.00. Not many trucks out there with this kind of bed. I will try and add pictures this weekend.

    Price seems a bit high for a high mileage gas jobber.

    What would you think an accurate price would be, keeping in mind the bed dumps and the date folds to ride equipment up on it? Not too many out there that you can do both with.

    Nice truck! A little off topic but, who makes that bed?

    I an not really sure. It was on there when I bought it. It was the main reason that I did since you can do so much with it. I had never seen one like it. I had only seen the ones that you had to remove the can dove trail and ramp in order to dump.

    Hey, I have a Dodge 2500 4x4 with a flat bed and pipe rack with a v plow on it would trade for that truck.

    Would have to drive it down, seeing as Im in Alaska. But our owner like to do "walk a bouts" because she likes to get "outside" (what we call everything that isn't alaska) so the long drive isn't as odd as it might seem. Does seem like a pretty nifty bed.

    Would like to see the back ramp gate down. It seems like it is a bit short. Also, just because you say you can "hold" 20 cy of mulch, can it haul that much? What's the load capacity without causing it to squat? Have you considered taking that bed and putting it on a diesel truck?

    Diesels are not all that common in his area. He's also located in an area with pretty tight population density so he doesn't drive all over mother nature to get from the nursery to the client and back. Raleigh/durham is just one of those places where diesel in a medium duty or smaller truck doesnt pay the investment back.

    Also in his area mulch is extremely light and pine straw my the acre loads is extremely common (and feather light)
