    Where can I find a landscaper's bed for my truck? In this months PRO mag, there is a story on GRN Designs. One of their trucks is a F350 w/ a landscape bed. The bed appears to be appx 12' long and the truck seems to be a standard LWB. Any idea on where to get one?

    IS that on a regular long wheel base? Thats an incredible truck. Whats the cost on something like that? Did you order it like that or just the bed?

    I doubt it is on a standard lwb truck. Most aftermarket beds are made for a cab & chassis which uses a different frame. I imagine, though, someone makes a landscape-type bed for a standard long bed. It might take some research to find, though.

    It wouldn't be to hard for a skilled welder to fabricate

    That's not a 350, looks like a 450 or larger. Although, I've seen that on a chevy truck at a dealership. Some outfit called lawns 'r us uses them in Winston-Salem.

    I'm thinking about the Mitsu. cabover.
    There is a place in Fl. that does landscaper beds for almost any application.
    Alumna is the name of the company. No website. I talked to a guy from the company last year about getting some info.Never got it. He said they were moving into a new facility and,at that time,were working on a website.
    A few guys have the landscaper beds here,on the Isuzu cabover. Very nice. Another guy has a 16 ft. tandem trailer that was made by them.
    Anyone ever bought from them or seen any of their products?

    Upon viewing the truck picture again, I feel stupid to have asked the LWB question. Thanks to all for the input. It might be better just to talk to someone about fabricating one just for me.
