    Last one. It came with everything but the wood side-boards.

    Heron Cove-
    That setup is sweet- how much would an insert like that go for?

    Thanks

    WOW! That is awesome! I would love something like that in my truck. Looks mighty expensive though.

    That is a sweet body almost got one at a show once the floor model,then it was $3,999.99 I would have to say it is running around $4,500 -$5,000.

    Insert, cab shield, tarp kit, sideboard kit, installation, MD sales tax = $5,000.00. The unit is all aluminum/stainless steel. It will lift 5,000lbs and has a 47 degree dump angle. It has a 3 stage, 18 second lift cycle. This thing is fast. What I like about it most is I can buy the de-icer attachment and use it for spreading salt this winter. There are a couple of minor things I don't like; however the pros definitely out weight the cons. I need to paint the side boards and figure out how to put a rear door on it; and I am definitely going to test it out this weekend. I'm going to put a big, big, jag on it (jag=load, for non truck drivers ) :D

    Your truck is about maxed out with just the insert, empty.
