    Hey all im looking for a flatbed for my 75 chevy truck. Can you guys send me in the right direction. We would like to make it a dumping flatbed. Any help would be great.

    Is this a 1/2,3/4, 1 ton P/U or is it a 1 ton cab and chassis, long or short wheelbase ?

    If it is a pickup truck with the box rusted off then your better off finding a local welding shop build you a bed. If its a 1 ton cab and chassis with a 34 inch wide frame then you have all kinds of choices from cheap stamped steel to heavy built decks. Then you have aluminum or steel.

    A 75 truck is old it would have to be in pretty good shape to be worth putting money into.

    Try EBAY, I bought mine for $500, I just waited till I found the right one in my area. Might check Craigslist also.

    A 8x7 or 9x7 flatdeck isn't that expensive to build then you can have something the way you want it.
