    Anyone know a company that will build one of those landscape beds like the one's you see on Isuzu trucks? I would like to get one for a pickup truck. Thanks

    Those beds you speak of, they run about 10 thousand dollars...
    Why not many folks have them.

    Something like this - this is for Irrigation but you get the idea - http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=202417

    We bought this end of Sept last year. If I remember correctly it cost around $9,000. We got another one a few months ago - same thing cost about $11,000 (damn price of steel - and I'm sure it is even more now).

    Anyway we bought them from a company in NC - PJ's Truck & Equipment - http://www.pjstruckbodies.com/.

    There are a lot of companies out there - I did some shopping before i bought this body (obviously) and PJ's worked with me on the price and have had no problems - would recommend.

    I also priced it out with Supreme - more expensive but I'd at least get a quote from them - http://www.supremecorp.com/supreme.php?page=product&product=31
     
  7. TRY http://www.wil-ro.com/ in Gallatin, Tn. just outside Nashville, they built mine and they do a great job.

    we have a wil-ro for a 92 model f350, if your truck is like it i'd love to sell it to ya (we don't use the truck anymore because the truck (not the body) was worn out, we made the mistake of putting the body on later in the trucks life.
