    Just purchased a TruckCraft TC-100 Pro Steel Dump Insert a week ago. I'm very much looking forward to mulch installation and leaf removal this year. No more climbing in the back and raking the leaves out. :clapping:

    looks great. how much did that run you if you don't mind me asking? i really like it, pulling the leaves out by hand really sucks, and is that a 1500 or 2500 RAM? kind of hard to tell, thanks

    Thanks for the compliments. With the options (cab guard, rollup tarp, sideboard buildup) my final bill was around $3696. After raking the leaves out of the bed for the past two years I decided an upgrade was definitely needed. It will also be nice for mulch installation. Now I should be able to hold around 5 cubic yards of mulch. My truck is a 2003 Dodge 2500 HD 4x4 with a 5.7L V8 Hemi.

    Hard work is paying off...I'm pretty happy. :)

    mister_snowplow, Did you look at any other brands of dump beds before deciding that this was the one you wanted?

    I did look around a bit (EZ Dumper/DownEaster), but from the beginning I pretty much had my heart set on buying a TruckCraft dump. Why do you ask?

    I was just curious as to what other brands you had looked at.

    Good luck with it.

    A TruckCraft Dump? If so, good deal for you. I'm not sure how you bought a TruckCraft Dump that cheap when on their site it goes for $2832 without any options.

    In the end, I felt comfortable paying more because I know that TruckCraft Dumps are top of the line. If spending more give me peace of mind...then it is worth it to me and my business.
