Kit will convert pickup to a drop-side flatbed

The new TruckCraft Metro kit will convert any single rear wheel pickup to a handy aluminum drop-side flatbed with 2.8 cubic yard struck volume, and over 56 square feet of deck that can be freely accessed on three sides by forklift or loader.

For about the same exchange weight as the pickup bed, the kit can be mounted on a pickup chassis in a few hours to provide much more versatility.

Metro is easily upgraded to a 3,500-pound capacity three-way dump with a bolt-on double acting hoist kit. Just switch pull pins to select dump direction – left, right or rear. Positive latches for the sides and tailgate cannot open accidentally, and do not use above-the-deck corner posts.

Metro is constructed primarily of heat treated 6061 T6 alloy aluminum extrusion for strength, and comes with anodized sides, tailgate and cabguard for a long lasting, maintenance-free appearance.
