Here's my latest creation. Some people may think I'm crazy but I bought a M936, removed the bed and front winch, and installed a spreader bed.
The reason I went with a M936 is I needed the double frame and the heavier suspension. I got it for what I thought was a good deal also. Got the truck home last Fri., played with the crane over the weekend, and on Monday I pulled the bed.
I was going to keep the front winch but the truck is a money maker and it just wasn't practical. I needed to lower the weight as much as I could (so I could haul more) and this truck will be used to spread lime and fertilizer on fields and cropland. More than likely if I get stuck there will be nowhere to hook the winch line to anyway.
I haven't decided what I'm going to do with bed and front winch yet. I already have some interest in the stuff but I'm not sure if I want to get rid of it or hang on to it.
