do you run a flatbed or dump in the summer?  On our next truck I'm debating on mounting a v-box right to the rails in the winter vs. spec-ing a stainless dump box and using a tailgate spreader

I just bought the truck a couple of months ago, so I have not really used it yet since the plow and spreader install. My plan however is to use it as a form truck (concrete) in the summer months. It may be hard to see in the picture but the spreader is sitting on a sub frame attached to the truck frame. I designed the sub frame so I can remove the spreader and bolt a different type of body on it such as a flatbed. The truck is a little short but I will make it work for 16 foot lumber.
