    I would first look for a good metal/fabrication shop in your area. Its just welded steel that would be my first choice. if that doesn't work do a google for Truck Bodies, VA and it will show a bunch of place that do truck service bodies.

    not in VA, but it may help you out.

    Just be sure to watch your truck weight, as even with expanded steel, it still gets heavy and you could easily be at your truck limit with just the body and no equipment.


    Just my .02.

    Sorry It wasn't as insightful as grassmanak

    My local guy in Athens, TN is awesome. He is finishing up my dovetail on a 1500 dodge tomorrow. Pm me and I'll give you his information. BTW Everything from a folding ramp system, lights,etc...was only 1600.

    $1600 for a landscape bed. I say more than reasonable. With steel prices, I doubt I could build one myself for that price.

    I know...My guy is good. I'll shoot some pics tomorrow after i pick it up. Actually, some of you may use his products. Brad Lane of Fabworks OEM builds great trimmer and custom fit blower racks-he sells a lot of them on ebay. He also did a great job of racking and rigging my 16 footer last spring.
