    Planning on turning this into a nice small compact rig to hold some debris, 48" Wright and a 32" Gravely. Here are the inital pictures of the bed removed. I will be adding more photo as the build goes. BTW I will build one if anyone is interested. Should take us 2 days to complete this setup and I will be building a heavy duty unit possibly capable of dumping.

    I'm doubt the length of frame to fit a 48" stance, 32" WB, a dove tail AND a dumping platform..(I'm guessing side dump?)

    This will not be a dump. This is just a small residential mowing platform. 88" wide 7.5ft long flat plus 18-24" dove and 6ft bi-folding gate. Waiting on my airbags to come in. I may move the rear axle back, but I'm going to wait until it's done and then scale each wheel and see how it is distributed first.

    Very interested in this project. Curious to see how it comes out. What ideas do you have for it? Possibly a dovetail?
