    A good 8 foot Rugby dump by Dejana in 05 when I last bought one was $6500 installed, may have gone up a lil since. But figure a rack dump is cheaper, but the solid side ones that look like the big trucks are ALOT more.

    Cool thats what I was thinking . Think I may just go with a rack body .I will still be able to haul mulch and topsoil , at least I think so

    The price on a 11 foot fold down mason dump is 11,000 CND installed a flatdeck dump is 8 grand installed.

    I built my own 11.5 foot deck its built heavy it was 2000-2500 dollars to build the hoist is another 1800 dollars.

    If the current flatdeck is rusted off what is the rest of the truck like the trucks frame has to be rusty.

    No actually the frame is in great shape , no rust or scaling at all . the dump body is a rack body with wood floors and the perimiter frame is rusting out and the rack sides have seen better days . But all in all the truck isnt bad its worth putting a body on it I just want to make sure I can afford the body before I buy it

    rugby 11' = $7500.00
    henderson (what i have) 11' = just under $10,000
    henderson (also have) 9' = aroun $9000.00

    most dump bodies are all in the same ball park of pricing now so its the style that is more important to the buyer. I would say from $7000-$11,000 is the range.
