Situation:

96 Dodge CTD, the extended cab is getting too small for all of us(**** kids keep growing should stop feeding them). Looking into a new Dodge CTD, but, they are 4 1/2 inches taller. Lose all my clearance on the fifth. I can't raise the trailer anymore and the truck can't be lowered enough.(I looked into the links given on the thread by JC2)

I have seen some out there so I know they exist - does anyone know anything about the aftermarket truckboxes that still have pickup function, but seem to be trimmed down a bit? Kind of like a flat deck with sides, but not a custom RV box with compartments.

I have tried many google searches with no luck. Will be talking with a welding company soon.

Thoughts, opinions?

B&W also have a full line of towing beds, from relatively simple ones all the way up to their Elite series.

Your link to traffic.wsdot.wa (etc) has changed athough it gets you there. Just thought you might want to update it.
