    What is the best dump kit for my Dodge 3500 flatbed? I have a budget of $1500. Is there a better one than the Northern model?

    I am pretty sure there are better ones than those in northern, but, you get what you pay for. I remember one post in the pics section of a guy with an F250 i think that installed one on his truck bed.

    Where did you find a $1500 dump insert in Northern Tool. I am also looking for one and i like the one from Dump-Pro but it is more that what i want to spend also.:waving:

    Yeah I think it will work out great. 10,000 lbs should handle everything I will ever need to do... and the price is right.
