    My Q36 will arrive at the Roadway terminal Wed. My question to you guys is can I fit the crate inside the bed of my truck ('99 Dode Dakota Sport long bed) or will I need my trailer?.....any info would be helpful

    just picked mine up friday,i used a open trailer. the crate is 54" wide and 80 some inches long.my F250 was only 51" between the wheel wells so i didnt want to chance it.

    Should not need a trailer- I have a chevy silverado and there was plenty of room to spare between the wheel wells when I picked mine up at the freight terminal. You might want to call the good folks at Better and get the exact width measurement then compare to your truck.

    i just gave him the exact width and that was straight from roadway...they measured it for me.My wheel wells were a few inches to narrow and i wasnt taking the chance,besides much easier to assemble on a trailer.

    Does BOP's Free Freight also cover the shipping of purchased accessories IE StepSaver, grass-catcher, etc...?

    Yes, mine is coming with a step saver and extra blades and it was still free (to the terminal).
