    Does anyone have any pictures of pickup bed landscape inserts for a 1/2 ton truck? I'm referring to something along the lines of this- http://primetruckandtrailer.com/truck-bed-inserts/
    I'm wanting to do mine a little different than theirs. For starters, I want to leave the original bumper on. I'm wanting something I can run up to a 48" on, not just 21" mowers. I'll probably run 1 48" and 1 21" out of the back of this rig.
    FWIW, the truck I'm planing on using is a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9 liter gas
    Thanks in advance.
    Mike

    Wouldnt it be cheaper to use a small trailer instead?

    Not for what I'm trying to do. In the long run it's much more inexpensive to ditch the trailer all together. Less tires to buy, wiring headaches, gas, time, etc.

    That is a cool idea for small subdivisions where parking is limited.

    Exactly. And like I mentioned earlier it should save a lot of money.

    That is an awesome setup. I know there is a local guy here that has a F250 with similar ramp and carries 2 48" WBs in the back, I think lescos.

    Look forward to your progress. Do you think there is a way to just mount it to the hitch and tailgate hinges for easy removable?

    That's kind of what I'm hoping to do. I'm a muddauber welder so I'll probably enlist a friend to at least help me design it.
