    it has been dicussed. the stock truck bed will not handle the stress. it will fall apart. if u are going to do it switch to a flatbed with sides.

    I just bought a Bri-Mar dump insert instead. It might be a little bit more expensive but it is so worth it in my opinion.

    Not sure if I am "legal" here but Dump Pro has a really neat set up for what you want to do. No I am not affiliated in any way with the company nor do I get a cut of any profits.

    They have inserts that will do your type of work and what is nice is that it is not very heavy and they make them for short box pickups too.

    From what I have heard they cost the same as the steel type (truck craft, Bi Mar). Hope this helps.
