    I may be upgrading trucks and am looking for an 11' Bibeau contractors box. A used one that isn't beat too much would work also. If anyone knows of one, let me know. I have a picture of the old truck with the box.

    You will be tough to find a used mason box. The only other manfactures that build boxes like that one is Del Hydraulics and Henderson Manufacturing.

    You want to stick with a box with a front mount post hoist for power and weight savings.

    I want the exact same box but much newer or hoping an Upfitter has one they would like to get rid of. I know of some 9' bodies but I need that extra two foot. I wish I could live with the shorter because they are cheap compared to the 11'. Worst case I will have to fix this one and reuse it.

    A 11 foot box is nicer you can load it easier with a loader and plus the fact the truck rides better because of the longer wheelbase.

    I don't like 9 foot boxes they are too short to haul light material. I don't want tall side boards raising the center of gravity of the load.

    A new 11 foot drop side your prolly looking at 8-9 grand here they are a little more than that.
