    I have a f350 with a 3-5yard dump. The rod that the tarp rolls up on snapped in half (dont know how). Plus parts have holes.

    Does anyone know of where I can get a new tarp system online? Thanks!

    Mark, You have serveral options. Can you gat the rod repaired and just replace the tarp? If not, you can order a new one but it won't be cheap. You can also check with junk yards that deal with commercial trucks and see if you can find one used. You can also just buy a mesh tarp and strap it down over your loads as needed.

    Check for a shop that makes custom covers for boats and equipment near you. The one we have locally will usually fab anything made with heavy material as they have the heavy sewing equipment. Vinyl, canvas or what ever your tarp is. They even made us a custom cover for our bomb disposal trailer!
