    I just bought a 08 f450 chassis cab and put an 11 foot dump body on it. Now I need to purchase some type of a tarp system that will roll up and one that I can slide a bar through the back to hook on to the hooks on the sides at the top of tail gate. Any suggestions?

    depending on where in the MIDWEST you are located, truck utilities or aspen equipment should be able to help you. I have used them before.

    Maybe not what you would care to do but.....

    You could make something yourself too. Either with some pre-made tarps from a farm and barn store... Or have something custom made by an auto top type shop. They are some very talented individuals.

    Yes I realize time is money, and it may be much simpler just to purchase a complete system.

    I have a buyers tarp system on my F450 and it works fine, Nothing special but covers the load every time.

    And if you don't already know if you have an 11' bed go with a 15' long tarp. you want to be able to go over whatever brush or mulch you have in there and not be short of the rear end of your dump.
