-- If you often move materials such as rocks and mulch or other landscaping supplies, than adding a truck dump bed to your pick up truck may be a smart move for you. Dump beds for pickups have become more popular over the last few years, and with good reason. They make unloading material a quick task.
There are two main types of pickup truck dump beds. The first type is an insert that fits in the bed of your truck, and the second type is a bolt on type that includes a hydraulic cylinder that mounts under the bed of your truck.
The insert dump beds are easier to install and can usually be removed easily, while the bolt on type are permanent. With the bolt on hydraulic cylinder, your truck looks like a stock truck, so this is an advantage to some people.
The cost of truck dump beds vary depending on the type of system you buy and the material the dump bed is made of. The insert dump beds can be made out of steel, aluminum, or plastic which will affect the price.
