    When you build your commercial truck on Ford.com, does the sticker price come w/ the bed? If not, how much are dump beds usually?

    I don't think they include the bed. You may want to call around to local upfitters in your area to get a quote on a bed from them.

    Ok, it's just that when i went to a ford lot, they had a new F-350 w/ a dump ..........XL, V8, and it was ony 26K, so i'm thinken a 2005 F-350 DUmp V10 couldn't cost that much more

    The local dealer here only has chassis cabs for F-350's, F-450's, and 550's. I'm thinking your dealer had it set up themselves and it would be included in their price.

    Thanks, do think a F-350 w/ a dump, V10, Regular Cab, XLTfor 30K seems unreasonable?

    I think your best bet would be to buy the cab and chasis from the dealer without the body on it. Get the body installed from an aftermarket company and you will save a good amount of money. All the dealers do is take the trucks to these places, put the bodys on them, and mark them up. Cut out the middleman and get the body put on yourself.
