    Old thread, but hubba hubba, love that setup!

    I thinks my 5500 Dodge dump truck has weight class envy! :weightlifter:

    For those that have sides and/or boxes in the back of their trucks. How do you fasten them down? Also, do any of you have closer up inside pictures of the framing of it?

    Most trucks have stake pockets with holes through them......
    Slide the wood in, put 2 washers on the bolt, screw it in and now the box will catch on the lip of your stake pockets if it wants to lift up or slide out

    For those that have the signs on their boxes/sides, where did you get them made? I'd want my company logo on them and text stating "spring/fall clean ups" then phone number on them. I did some online searching but didn't find much.

    Am i the only one here?!?!
    Or the only one nice enough to respond....

    Find a local sign shop or Car Wrapping, decal mAking shop...
    Only bad thing about having wooden sides is Decals wont stick to it. Therefore you will have to have a sign made out of corrugated plastic (I call it plastic poster board)

    I've used buildasign.com for banners and they turned out GREATTTTT! So you could try them. But my local sign shop has Lettered all of our truck, trailers, leaf boxes, Skid steers and everything...

    I think some of both lol. Yes, that is the down side of woodsides that magnets don't work, magnets are very easy to get designed and created. Ill take a look into build a sign.com. thanks

    This is last years setup but I'll be sticking with it for the next couple years. Only thing I changed was I went with a larger diameter drainage pipe, the 6" pipe got clogged way too much. I'm now using a 10" pipe and I was clog free last year.
