    I've never seen an axle placed like that on a 3/4 ton. If you want a dump, get a 1 ton so you can have some wiggle room on the load.

    They used to make them for U-Hauls and RV's its not a true dual, more of a spacer.

    That Toyota would work fine for a mowing only route. In the past I have looked but couldn't find one. I would lower the box sides to make it easier to dump bags of grass.

    I agree, There are several companies down here that use them. One pulls a 14 foot enclosed trailer daily. They swear by the truck. It looks good also. The fuel mileage might not be what they say but still better than a full size truck. If you did purchase I would make darn good and sure that you watch your weight. We have one tons and have never been pulled over by ODOT but have seen Joe homeowner pulled over because of being significantly overloaded.
