I am going to put a flatbed on my 06 Dodge 3500, and am trying to decide between steel and aluminum? Anyone have any input and/or pro's/cons of each? I am looking at Hillsboro's at a local trailer dealership, but am certainly not married to anyone brand yet. Hillsboro has a nice new steel model that is heavier duty than their previous models. I do like the look of aluminum better, and certainly like the idea of it still looking the same in 10 years, as a steel one will get scratched up and need to be repainted in a few years. It looks like it would cost about $1k more than the cheapest hillsboro steel fb to do aluminum, or only about $200 more than the heavy duty steel one they make. Their is also a local fab shop that makes their own steel flatbeds to your spec's (look pretty heavy duty) for around $3k. Decisions, decisions. Input?
