    I have a 2001 Chevy S-10 Z-R2 with a 3/4 suspension on it. I was looking to use the truck in the fall for spring clean up. I am trying to figure out if they make a dump insert for my truck. So far I have not found much, but have not looked that hard eirhter. I have found a system to turn the bed into a dumper bed but was not sure if that is what I really want.

    I would like to get an aluminum insert. I keep seeing guys with truckster dump inserts but never seen one in an s-10. Let me know what you guys think.

    To be honest I think you are wasting you time with the S-10. If you could find and insert, there would be very little weight capacity left to haul anything....remember you tires are usually the weak link......

    as for the hoist kits for the bed......they are very hard on the bed because the bed are not make for lifting......maybe look for and older

    your best bet would be a load hander......cheap and effective......
