    Looking for a "gentley used" dump bed insert for a 8ft bed. Its going into a 06 F250 Super Duty. I don't mind if it needed some sanding but it has to be in good shape. Looking to buy in the late winter (Feb.-March)

    I may have what you want....Downeaster stainless steel insert W cab protector and tarp. The handle for the tarp fell off about a month ago....can't find it. 3 yrs. old....no dents, rust (stainless) tailgate and chains and even sideracks I made.

    This is currently on a '96 F350. I put tie down hooks on the tailgate and rings in the sideracks....must see to appreciate.

    Almost forgot......it's rated at 3 ton (I believe, will check it out)but I have had that kind of weight on it only a couple times (mulch) as I had to pitch the top of the load off by hand to raise it to dump.....was way overloaded.(I think there must have been around 3 1/2-4 ton as the box went up about a foot and no farther till I got part of the load off) I used it primarily for mulch deliveries, grass removal, have delivered some stone.....unit is in excellent shape. The cab protector was welded on.....I was talking with the dealer in the office and when I walked into the shop during installation it was 3/4 of the way welded. If you have access to a plasma cutter I suppose you could take it off and do a neat job.

    I bought mine brand new for $2500 and put air bag suspension on my truck for around $1800. It was well worth it to get it new because the beds are heavy
