Re: 1/2 ton or 3/4 dump beds?

The mini-truck crowd does "tilt beds". I don't think they could haul and dump more than a cooler of beer. What you see above is a dump conversion using full frame substructure, so you can use it pretty much same as a true dump truck. There are kits made today to install and keep bed in line. But they ain't all that cheap, about what that flatbed dump would cost. But that truck doesn't have all you need to bolt in, like the conversion kit would. These leave the bed "close to" being aligned with the cab.
