    Okay I was out standing on my deck relaxing a bit looking at a 6x12 trailer I have and a one ton 4x4 chevy crew cab that doesn't get used much. I have been thinking about the landscape body truck concept for a few months now. So...here is my thought could I not remove the bed of the truck add some support take the axle off the trailer and mount it??? What do you all think?

    personally i wouldnt do that to a perfectly good truck. but you could do it if you wanted but i just wouldnt want to ruin a good truck that you could sell now and make a good chunk of change off of compared to where you couldnt when it has a landscape body on it.

    I think you'll look like a red-neck. When you finish, you should put one of those stickers across the front windshield that says "Get r done"

    I've had the same idea about putting a small trailer body on a truck. I think a little dovetail trailer would be good to use.

    putting the trailer on back is easy. Way cheaper than buying custom, also lighter. Did it to my f250 and it works great
