Like the subject says I bought some steel to start building my new dumping flatdeck. Well I'am 1700 dollars poorer but atleast it will get me the deck built I haven't decided on a headache rack style yet. I got quotes on new dump bodies a fold down side 11' box was going to cost me 8000 dollars installed. A aluminum flatdeck was going to cost me 7000 dollars installed. So I'am going to build a 11x8 deck its going to be a tad heavy I'am using 3/16 plate for decking as I'am going to be hauling dirt and rocks. I was going to modify the deck I have on the truck to dump but its going to take quite abit of work. I thought to myself screw it I will spend the money build a new deck it will last me 10 years or so I can take switch it to a different truck when the current one wears out. When I talked to the dealer I was going to buy the tilt downside contractor dump box said it wouldn't stand up to what I wanted to use the box for. I'am glad the person was honest it saved me some money. Anyhow the price of steel sure has gone up but I'am still saving money building the deck myself. Actually the manufactures that build flatdecks in B.C. are so busy you get put on a waiting list. Sorry won't beable to post any pictures I don't think I could borrow mom's new digital I would get in deep poo if I wrecked the camera.
