    I love it as well! I have only put about 500 hours on it, but I have enjoyed every one of them!
    Im heading to your thread now!

    How did this end up working out for you?

    I'm still loving it! It does everything that I hoped that it would. I don't use the dovetail very much. I use it much more for the dump function and the pulling capacity. I have a maintenance truck with a fixed dovetail that I use for the mowers.
    I made a set of sides that are the same height as the headache rack. It has doors on hinges. I can put a good bit of stuff in it.
    I would still love the switch and go system on a bigger truck - one day!!!

    What size is the bed and how many Zero turns can you fit? Thanks for the info.

    The maintenance truck is a 3500 with a 16' bed. Loaded I carry 2 61" zeros and a 48" vantage. It could hold 3 zeros without a problem though.
    This is an old pic before I got it lettered.

    The 4500 has an 8' bed. I wish I had gotten it with a 12.
