Does anyone have any pictures of (or suggestions about) dump bodies on a Case deck? I want it to be an implement that can be exchanged between Mogs with Case decks, thinking the hinges will be similar to the one's shown on Darrin's rig (Unimogs). Was thinking I'd like to put the scissor in the well of the Case deck, however, but I suppose I wouldn't loose too much in the way of capacity or balance (high center of gravity) by doing something akin to what Darrin did. At any rate, any thoughts or better yet, photographs would be appreciated. Plan on getting started later this week.

here are some photos of one off of a case truck that I parted out. This setup would be very easy to swap from truck to truck.

Hi MogMountain,

I have seen some trucks with beds from M-105A trailers and have 'thought' about modifying one for a Case deck. Sure would be easier than fabricating a whole bed. Think I'd fill in the wheel wells if I did it.

Von, how come you live so far away!?!? That's a nice dumper!

Bob,
That was the first thing that sold off of that truck! It went to someone in TX. I can ship any part to anywhere in the world, so I am not that far from anywhere!
