    Any dump beds out there?

    Has anyone converted their Mighty Max / D50 to have a hydraulic dump bed? There are some kit options out there for full size trucks but I've come up short when looking for these trucks.

    The problem you are going to find is the width of our frame. You could get an old used kit and make "adjustments" to it. But your going to need to be a skilled fab guy to keep everything lined up.

    I've had this a month, just got it legal and running, took it to the dump yesterday!
    I can't find anything out there like this either, did you have any luck?

    and a dually! the low mount mirrors even clear the bed. I came across a chevy luv diesel in a jy that had a steel flatbed, hydraulic lifts, and cable guides for a winch. It was in a barn that burned and part of the barn fell on the truck crushing it and denting the diamond plate on the bed. I bought the bed and brought it home, but it was so heavy that I ended up scrapping it. There was no way that chevy luv diesel would have been able to run on the highway with that bed - I think the farmer was using it as a cheap diesel farm tractor.

    I've not had any luck finding suitable examples of dump beds for these trucks. Odd considering the micro truck tilt bed scene and all. I did run across a vid on YouTube of a small Toyota pickup with a dump conversion. The guy took a kit for full size truck and modified the frame (cut one of the cross bits) of the Toyota to fit it.

    The SteathDumpTrucks shop is somewhat local to me. I sent them a note a while back asking if they had anything that fit. They replied with a flat no.

    Frustrating..
