    bed size really depends on material. But if you dont wanna get a hook lift, for a 26k gvwr truck i would go 12-14' like said above those are the most versatile. I am not afraid to throw concrete in our flatbed dump, but its primary use is mulch and hualing plant material.

    If i were to go 26k gvwr, i would get a 33k gvwr truck and get myself a CDL. 33k gvwr trucks are much more affordable because it requires a cdl, but isnt a huge truck. you will find an fl70 with 33k gvwr for a lot less than an fl70 with a 26k gvwr.

    if your looking to make money...then yes. the mpg will be better, the truck weighs significantly less, so it will still have a payload similar to the 26k truck, it has a larger bed so you can hual larger amounts of lighter material.....

    id say thats a step in the right direction for sure!!!

    I like the first one, looks like a nice long body. Price is right too
    What are the specs on the second one? It might be really heavy empty
