    I currently have a F 450 dump bed. I would like to downsize a bit to a newer 1 ton. Ford Chevy or Dodge. I am not having much luck finding the truck I want with a landscape box. Also I had a box manufacturer tell me you cant put one on a Dodge pick-up?
    So in a nut shell, I want a 1 ton dually crew cab with a landscape bed. Any input would be great. We are in southwest Florida.

    It's difficult to upfit a pickup truck with a dump/landscape body because of the frame rails. I'd look for a factory cab/chassis truck.
