    I am considering buying one of the landscape bodies that you can drive onto for a new truck. I am wanting to buy a Ford F450 crew cab and put a 20ft bed on it. What I am wanting to know is who manufacturers these beds and what cab to axle do I need?

    Are you wanting a open landscape body or enclosed? Supreme MFG makes nice open bodies and enclosed. We have a Hino with a 16ft box and a 3ft dovetail.

    You want a 20 foot bed on a F-450 Crew cab :confused:

    For one the truck will need more than 40 acres to turn. I have a 2003 F-450 Regular cab with a 12' deck and its not a tight turner.
