    have a dump kit that makes their existing bed dump? how much weight can it handle? and does it come with any extra bracing to keep the bed from tweaking? thanks,

    o yea and i almost forgot how much did it cost you? (keep in mind im on a 16 year olds budget)

    I am really thinking about getting one for my Chevy this next season. This one will do 2 ton, and sells for $849.

    yea i bought one them. worst purchase i made, i got the bed off with a forklift and nothing fit yes it was the correct model because i called the guy who sold it to me even the guy that was helping me do it ( he does truck bodys for a living) said it was shlt. i would suggest buying a dump truck

    arent the good ones 4-5 thousand i see? i could be wrong but that would explain why the cheap one was garbage...

    How often you actually going to be dumping weekly or the occasional side job of mulch or top soil?

    if u are 16 and on a tite budget it might be good for you

    bought one when we first started..the cheap one..junk!!!! maybe if braced really well....it will do mulch..but thats it...not easy to install...requires cutting welding ect....get a dump trailer one of the best investment thus far....
