    I have a 3/4 ton pickup with an 8' bed,which is used to haul our landscape trailer. I'd like to start using this truck as well for leaf removal on an as needed basis. I also, just recently picked up a tail gate mounted leaf vac that also mounts in the reese hitch reciever for ease of use.

    I could use a little advise on how you think I should set this truck up to be efficient for leaf removal when needed.

    Turn the truck into a dump.

    If your looking to get cheap, just build a plywood box, and fit the top of it with a breathable tarp.

    It you hae alittle $$$ I'd get a nice dump insert fot the truck, and then do the above to it ^^^^.

    Having a dump for leaves is a life saver.
