Turn your pickup truck into a dump truck by building a wooden box for under $100.

By James H. Miller
| November/December 1983


  • The truck''s greatest disadvantage (as compared with conventional hydraulic systems) is that it will only work well on fairly level ground.

  • The author/inventor''ve encountered many situations that caused me to wish I had some way — other than with hand or shovel — to unload the various materials I''d ever seen, heard of, or read about were hydraulic dump-bed conversions . . . which cost a thousand dollars or more, including installation. And, when it came right down to it, I knew my own need for that sort of time and laborsaving device was neither frequent enough nor severe enough to justify much expense. So I continued to shovel and toss, thinking — as I'' heads.) I visualized a movable insert (or liner) that would fit inside the truck bed . . . which would be mounted on rollers to permit forward and backward movement ... and would be secured to the bed with cables that''div-gpt-ad-1522683564398-0''t know exactly what materials I''t allow the purchase of a lot of costly supplies. And, unfortunately, my "", at that point, relied on such "" components as a metal liner, conveyor-type rollers that would reach all the way across the bed, and expensive steel cables.

    Then, for the second time in 15 minutes (and after almost 40 years of total darkness), the light came on in my mind again.

    I did manage to develop the plan into an inexpensive load-dumping system . . . but I had to invest all of my spare time for the next several days, as well as a few dollars for some store-bought hardware, before I could tilt anything out of my truck.

    I didn''d fit between the fender wells in the truck''s.

    However, I soon discovered that getting the box to dump once I''t work, I finally obtained the right type of casters (2 1/2""wasted""Banner3""clear-both""advertisement-container global-padding text-center col-xs-12""adTitle""center""padding-bottom: 10px;""clear-both""Pickup Truck Dump Box""Best New Invention""padding-10x0x10x0 clear-both""left""_blank""https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/pickup-truck-dump-truck-zmaz83ndzale&display=popup""opi opi-facebook""https://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/pickup-truck-dump-truck-zmaz83ndzale&app_id=181109368644688""left padding-left-20""buttonPin""red""beside""true""https://www.pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=https://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/pickup-truck-dump-truck-zmaz83ndzale&media=https://opimedia.azureedge.net/-/media/images/men/editorial/articles/magazine-articles/1983/11-01/turn-your-pickup-truck-into-a-dump-truck/pickup-truck-media-field-jpg.jpg&description=Turn Your Pickup Truck Into a Dump Truck""opi opi-pinterest""left padding-left-20""https://twitter.com/share""https://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/pickup-truck-dump-truck-zmaz83ndzale""large""opi opi-twitter""left padding-left-20""/email?emailid={5C87C01C-72B9-478D-AFAC-83C31C9FC460}""opi opi-envelope""left padding-left-20""/print?printid={5C87C01C-72B9-478D-AFAC-83C31C9FC460}""opi opi-print""clear-both""comments""col-xs-12 text-center""commentsPanel""panel panel-primary global-padding""Share text-left""/diy/pickup-truck-dump-truck-zmaz83ndzale""post""scController""scController""hidden""Comment""scAction""scAction""hidden""CommentItemVR1""form-control""20""comment_message""Body""Join the conversation and share your thoughts!""5""RedirectUrl""RedirectUrl""hidden""/diy/pickup-truck-dump-truck-zmaz83ndzale""DateCreated""DateCreated""hidden""5/3/2020 12:04:52 PM""DateUpdated""DateUpdated""hidden""5/3/2020 12:04:52 PM""text-right padding-bottom padding-top""display: none;""form-control""HoneyPot""HoneyPot""text""""submit""btn btn-primary btn-lg""panel-body border-top""media-body border-bottom""text-left left font-bold""text-right left font-bold""comment""clear-both text-left""clear-both""media-body border-bottom""text-left left font-bold""text-right left font-bold""comment""clear-both text-left""Lil Tipster""clear-both""media-body border-bottom""text-left left font-bold""text-right left font-bold""comment""clear-both text-left""clear-both""MoreCommentButton""padding-bottom text-center""javascript: void(0)""javascript: ReadMoreComments()""btn btn-primary btn-lg readMoreCommentsBtn""ReadMoreComments""display: none;""media-body border-bottom moreComments""text-left left font-bold""text-right left font-bold""comment""clear-both text-left"" square tubing for reinforcement.
